Model Answer

My favourite possession and the most valuable thing I’ve ever had was a 90-square-meter apartment that I won in a lottery when I was 25 years old. I remember living in a very small house with my in-laws and I used to work full-time at an oil company at the time… plus, I had a 2-year-old daughter who needed to be looked after 24/7… that’s why my husband and I decided to move to the city where his family lived so that they could take care of her.

The first two years, we lived together in an old house with 8 other people ….  I still remember vividly how I used to feel. One day I heard about a house sweepstakes in our company. So I registered for it pessimistically because I could never have imagined that I’d ever win. It took 2 years for the building of these apartments to finish…and…since there were 40 people taking part in the lottery and only three apartments, we only had a slight chance of winning.

Finally …. I heard the best news in my life. Looking back, I couldn’t have been happier! …I know…it wasn’t a big deal! It was only a small apartment but…to be honest… it was like a palace for me… This place was important to me because it was my very first apartment and I still reminisce about every single moment of it.
