How to answer this question

Example of a good response to this question: When I was a student in college, I had the opportunity to work on a project with a team of five other students that was extremely challenging. We were tasked with creating a website for a local nonprofit organization. We had to collaborate on the design, layout, and coding of the website, and none of us had any prior experience in website design. We had to learn quickly and work together to come up with a creative and functional website. We overcame the challenge by utilizing our strengths and working hard to complete the project. We managed to create a website that exceeded our expectations and was well-received by the nonprofit organization.
