Describe a famous person that you are interested in
who this person is
how you know about this person
what sort of life they had before they became famous
how this person became famous
and explain why you like this person
今天，小编将为大家展示一个famous到一定程度的人物，Steve Jobs(乔布斯), 以此介绍一下整道题的思路以及常用表达：
一. Who this person is
怎么开始part 2的描述?可以使用：Now I want to describe...to you. 更地道一些的话，大家可以试着说When it comes to a famous person I take interest in, the first person that comes to me is...或者I would say Steve Jobs is my idol/icon(崇拜的人)。这样就自然得引出了第一问：who this person is, 但是千万别只扔个名字上去，名字之后可以使用定语从句添加更多人物细节(eg. ta工作的领域，特点等)，如果想讲中国的名人，大家尽量使用英文名字，或者在中文名字后面介绍一下，不然你只说刘涛，谢霆锋，考官可能一脸蒙圈......
When it comes to a famous person I take interest in, the first person that comes to my mind is Steve Jobs. As we all know, he was the co-founder and chief executive officer (CEO) of Apple Inc(公司).
二. How you know about this person
I got to know him through the speech he delivered at a commencement in Stanford University . I have to say that the speech was very inspiring and impressive.
三. What sort of life they had before
they became famous
这个问题在组织的时候一定要有条理(可以按照一定的时间顺序)，有逻辑：eg. ...was born and raised in... At first,... Then... Next,... Finally,...内容要基于事实，越具体越显得充实!比如，能讲出乔布斯在出生时即被收养，大学期间辍学，因为贫穷而住在朋友家的地板上甚至回收可乐罐赚钱，那么一个有血有肉的形象就跃然纸上了。
Before he became famous, Jobs experienced many hardships early in his life. His biological mother who was an unwed student, gave him up for adoption. He dropped out of Reed College because he couldn't afford it and couldn't see the value in it. The experience of being poor wasn’t romantic, as he recalled. He didn't have a dorm room and he slept on the floor in his friends’ rooms. He even returned Coke bottles to buy food with.
四. How this person became famous
如果想说到目前为止，已获得的成就，可以说：So far...have been...
Jobs co-founded Apple in 1976 to sell Wozniak's Apple I personal computer. They gained fame and wealth a year later for the Apple II, which is one of the first highly successful mass-produced personal computers.
五. Explain why you like this person
I admire this person because he's not only..., but also...
和其他人比较： Unlike other..., he...
表达个人对其看法: Although... I still...
The reason why I take him as my icon is that he had the courage to follow his instinct and he had great passion for his job. This inspired me because in order to do great job, we need to love what we do first.
Almost everything, all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure, these things just fall away in the face of death, leaving what is truly important.
Stay hungry. Stay foolish.
The heaviness of being successful was replaced by the lightness of being a beginner again, less sure about everything. It freed me to enter one of the most creative periods of my life.
