Describe a time when you needed to use your imagination
You should say:

Why you needed to use your imagination
What the difficulties were about it
And explain how you felt about it
(What the situation was)
I have had the chance to meet Jia Jing, a student from one of the most prestigious universities in the world – Nanyang Technological University, who I think is the most creative person I’ve ever got to encounter so far. I met Jia Jing during an outreach programme in Vietnam. He was in the same group as me, meaning that we worked together a lot. We were mainly in charge of teaching activities.
(Why you needed to use your imagination)
We decided to look for a new method to teach English well. Since we received some negative feedback from the students on our lesson plan as some wanted to play games while some others were interested in studying. Jia Jing came up with an idea of sticking pieces papers around the walls as children were required to find a paper that has a word and another paper that has a photo of that word and combine these two together.
(What the difficulties were about it)
We didn’t encounter too many problems. However, the most important thing was that it was somehow a bit difficult to persuade naughty children to study. As we had to teach two classes comprising of two different age groups, we struggled a lot in planning lessons since there was a big gap between the levels of English proficiency of the students in each class.
(And explain how you felt about it)
It was a great success for me although the amount of money I received from the project remained very low.
She was the most remarkable woman he had ever known.
