Family plays a significant role in everyone’s life. There are countless circumstances when my family members have made me feel proud. Here, I would tend to elaborate on the incident when I was extremely proud of my sister.
Four years ago, my sister participated in an art and craft competition and she had made thread painting. Although she is just 9 years old, the way she performs it seems like she is 15 years old. Well, to be frank, my memory fails me and I cannot recall the exact date when she attended the craft activity but she made a thread painting with the help of a needle and wool and it was on a cloth.
Since she would never made a thread painting before, but she did well. It seemed to be arduous work as it took 4 to 5 hours to finish it but finally, it turned out to be quite rewarding.
The prominent reason for being proud of her is that she worked hard at such a tender age with determination, dedication, and discipline. I was so proud that she was even participating in a competition like this at such a young age. She has always been good at academics and in this craft competition, she got first prize.
we were really feeling proud of her. lt was really a proud moment for the entire family. I must say that my father was especially proud of my sister because he always wanted to see her daughter as a winner.
