Model Answer 1:

Introduction: 
Living in this globalized world, it is not uncommon for people to keep knowledge of famous people from other countries.

Who the person is? 
Here I would like to talk about a very interesting person who is actually the richest man on this planet, Elon musk.

How do you know him/her? 
He is the person who always remains in the limelight as the media tries to bring everything in public related to him. At the same time, he remains extremely active on social media, especially Twitter. Several things make this person quite interesting.

Firstly his curiosity towards space travel he owns a company named SpaceX with a mission to make it possible to travel in space in the near future. His imagination has no boundaries that’s why he often comes up with ideas that others find unrealistic.

What kind of person he/she is? and Explain why you think he/she is interesting?
He is often invited as a guest lecturer, and I always listen to his speeches available on youtube, which are extremely interesting and influential. He also believes that technology is going to change the world completely in the future, and that’s why he owns Tesla, the only company that manufactures robotic cars.

Although the car is not yet available in my country, I’m eager to feel the experience of sitting in a driverless car. In addition, this person is interesting because he has a very comical nature, and even his jokes are worth billions of dollars.

For example, sometimes ago, he started his cryptocurrency DOGE coin as a joke, and today this coin is worth billions. Elon musk has seven children, which is also quite interesting because he wants to change society’s perception while reading an article on him.

Conclusion:
I got to know that he is very much influenced by Indian culture and wants to visit India, and it is my wish I personally meet this amazing personality one day.
