An English teacher of some sort.

My folks said that was a waste of intelligence, that no one deliberately applies to study English in the university. lipsrsealed

I wanted to go into music. Then later I wanted to be a writer/marriage counselor. Then later wanted to be a mechanical engineer. Then later I started coding, built a website. And then later became a 3D artist and now I'm learning 3D Animations while currently working as an Accountant.

Weird right?

When I was small I didn't know what I wanted to be in life. All I knew then was that i could sing really well right from the age of 3. My Nursery and Primary teachers kept on saying it. Later in life, I discovered I could Act well at the age of 14 while I was in Science Class. Joined my School drama club and my church drama Dept to horn my craft.

When I finished secondary school about to enter University, I didn't know what to study so I opted for Geography (being a science student). I didn't enjoy studying it atall cos I had no interest in the course. But while in school I had a dream where God came down from heaven and ANOINTED Me.

I graduated and tried my hands on some Auditions for Movies but didn't book any. Directors would tell me I was good and even clap for me at Auditions but will go ahead and give the role to another person or those they liked. I also discovered that most Auditions are SCAM. Believe me...story for another day.

During my NYSC as a teacher in a secondary school, I had this heavy burden to touch lives, make an impact in people's lives and bring hope to people. Sometimes the it disturbs my heart so much that I won't be able to concentrate or even sleep.

I developed this desire and it grew to the point that I started telling God through Prayer that I wanted to touch lives and bring hope to people.

I graduated with a B.Sc in Geography and Planning (Second Class Lower). Applied to so many jobs but couldn't get one. I was frustrated. Story for another day.

Oneday, a neighbor I was always nice to told me to come and promote Plant Stem Cell Therapy (The New Face Of Medicine) and that I can use it to touch lives. Immediately I heard that "TOUCH LIVES", I keyed into the company after some prayers and to God be the glory, God has used me to bring hope and joy to so many families through the therapy especially to Sick and dying Patients.

That's what I do now by the way. I SAVE LIVES. Am not where I want to be but I'm moving. Right now, I want to go into the Healthcare Industry fully hopefully Nursing and definitely not in Nigeria. Would have opted for Medicine but while growing up, I had already been pre-conditioned by people I lived and grew up with that Medicine was too difficult therefore I never saw myself there and also it takes too long to study undecided

Complicated story right? Tell me about it.

What I have learnt is you never know where you want to be in life until Life sets in.
You never can tell if your childhood dreams would be your reality. Some people have dreams but the situation of their location has made them give up on their dreams.
You just have to trust GOD and keep moving for he alone will direct you. After all, the Bible says
"To man belong the plans of the heart, but from the LORD comes the reply of the tongue" Proverbs 16 vs 1. meaning a man might plan something in his heart but it's up to God to determine it's Manifestation.

I have learnt to be a blind man when walking with God. I have given him my hand for him to hold and take me while I walk with him blindly cos truly, nobody knows where he or she is truly going. Let's all trust GOD.

I hope my story has inspired you all today. Stay blessed.

Ambassador.

I thought it was something that could be studied at school. I was always fascinated seeing one of my distance uncles that was Nigeria's High Commissioner to Belgium in the 80s. I can't remember the country but it was in EU.

H looked fabulous then and driven in a peageut 505 Evolution car whenever he was around during Christmas.

Alexgman1:
At childhood we all have that dream career we wished and aspired to become at adulthood.

Some of us wanted to become a doctor, nurse, pharmacist, radiologist, surgeon, engineer, banker, economist, agriculturist, politician, pilot, journalist, athlete, pastor, fashion designer, educationist, scientist, a soldier, navy, airforce, e.t.c.

As for me my childhood dream career was to become a PILOT but today am an ECONOMIST.

What about you?
footballer or pastor
