I would like to talk about the time I had to get out of my comfort zone to join an essay writing  Contest which made me think out of the box and work flat out to get first position in this essay competition. This annual contest open to all students.

When it was
When you needed to use imagination
How difficult or easy it was
And explain how you felt about it ?

It was roughly two years ago when the quote by the greatest scientist Albert Einstein –  “Imagination is more important than knowledge”, was proven correct once again in my life. Each year this contest draws the attention of numerous students so it’s really competitive and challenging for me because we had to write 300 words in 20 minutes with exact format and also focused on spellings. There was a strict guideline from the instructor if students do mistake in spellings then they will lose their marks in writing test.

Therefore, it really required creativity and imagination from each student. I had to buckle down and brainstorm ideas for the challenge .I was silent for around 2-3 minutes  and noticed that everyone was writing their task. And that made the whole situation more challenging for me. I took another 2 minutes and then start writing with outstanding vocab. This all happened in the blink of an eye, after that result was announced and I got first prize from the chief guest. My joy knew no bounds. After all, I can take pride in myself for all the thing I achieved with my imagination and creativity.
