IELTS Cue Card 45 : Describe a difficult challenge that you completed/met

We face many challenges in our life, we strive to complete them to win the bounties of life. Some challenges are easy to achieve while others are difficult and takes years of hard work to accomplish them.

One such important challenge that I faced was learning a computer. I belong to a rural area and using a computer in day to day routine is not something which we do. I had never used computer before, even in schools because it was a paper based study. Computer was an optional subject and in place of computer, I chose Physical education. In college, again, it was paper based study and I felt no need of computer.

But then I read an article in newspaper that computer knowledge had become necessary for getting into a job. I got worried about my career. I requested my parents to buy me a PC. They agreed and bought me a laptop. I was happy but it was not easy for me to get a hand on it in the starting. I started typing a document in Microsoft word but my typing speed was so slow and I had to look for the keys for every word. I could use the mobile phone but I have no idea how I could use computer in my works. It gave me a big headache.

But then I took it as a challenge to master the use of computer upto professional level so that I would become eligible for jobs. It was not an easy challenge for me as I did not have enough time to join computer learning classes.

So I asked my friend to help me in learning the functions of laptop. Continuously for one month, I sat with my friend to learn its features and functions. I kept working on it and after a year, I finally could use office softwares, Photoshop, entertainment applications, internet on this laptop. I am very happy that I completed this challenge of learning professional level computer skills.

I think, if we keep on trying, we can overcome any challenge. So this was the time when I accomplished a difficult challenge.
