Model Answer:
To purchase a digital camera for my younger sister I had to save money for about 6 months. It was a Canon SLR camera that I knew she had a great desire to purchase. Since she is still in her college, it was really difficult for her to buy such a camera.

After I joined in a part time job, I planned to buy it for her. I wanted her to be happy with the camera and that’s the primary reasons I wanted to purchase it. I knew she has a talent in photography and that’s why I wanted her to have a good camera so that she gets inspired. After I went to some branded camera shops, I found that the camera would cost me a bit more that I would be able to effort. As I have joined a part time job at that time, it was not easy for me to instantly purchase the camera for my sister. Then I planned to save money for few months and then purchase it. I had to save money for 6-7 months and then I had been able to actually buy it.

Giving present or surprise gift to someone we care is more exciting and blissful than purchasing for ourselves. As her elder brother, I wanted to give her the camera so that she becomes happy. I also wanted her to continue her hobby of photography which was quite tough without a good quality camera. For these reasons, it was very important for me to purchase her the camera.
