Sample Answer:
Mr. David is a professor of history and a very famous person in the university. He helped a lot while completing my thesis on Old History of Europe. He is a man of letters and skilled in various arts. He also loves to take part in social activities and assist his students in needs. I think this is a nice cue card topic for me and I would like to thank you for this.

When I was not getting the supervisor for my thesis, Mr. David extended his helping hand. He allowed me to make him my supervisor in the thesis. Accordingly, I started taking suggestions and directives about the thesis which were really necessary for me. In fact, without support from Mr. David, the dean of the faculty, I would not have submitted the thesis in due time. He helped me always with the necessary information and valuable directives.  

I was told to select a subject for the thesis and I picked the topic – Old History of European Continent. History was my favourite and I thought that I would be able to complete the work in due time and smoothly. But I stumbled in each of the steps after the topic selection. I could not manage the necessary resources for exploration and I also did not get my supervisor who would guide me in the process. All the professors were engaged and then Mr. David told me to write his name on the space for supervisor in the thesis form.   

Honestly, I felt lucky when I got him as my supervisor. Moreover, we had a very good understanding and I got all the required supports from him. He was like an affectionate father to me. The moments under his supervision were nice and I finally made a good result.
