Sample Response:

Let's say you love playing with toy cars, racing them, and imagining big competitions. What I do is kind of like being the person who designs those toy cars. But instead of toys, I work on designing websites. Imagine if your toy car could tell you all about its adventures, where it’s been, and even teach you games. That's what I try to do with websites. I make sure they can give you information, help you learn new things, and sometimes, just let you have fun. Just like how your toy car needs to be designed to go fast or do cool tricks, I design websites to make sure they can do all the things you want them to do.
