Growing up in Nigeria as a young girl, my dream was to become a broadcaster. I went through school with this mind. I applied to study mass communication following my dream but was offered Adult Education. What is this i thought, i didn't apply for this, i don't even know what this is about but was encouarged to just do it, it's better than nothing they said.
Gaining admission into a higher institution in my country is like going through the eye of a needle, especially the Federal Universities because they are cheaper.
Education i beleive gives you a foot in the door, I've worked in some great places, able to help my younger ones through school too. But do i feel fulfilled? No. This is why am going back to school for masters in Guidance and counseling, to open a career centre that will foster self-discovery, clear doubts as to career path to follow and create support which is not available and make it accessible for all.
This i belive will be of help, especially to women ang girls, it will help them to have discovered their purpose, give a sense of meaning before marriage and be able to contribute to society. A lot of women suffer because of 'purposelessness'. A woman of purpose cannot be stopped but where purpose is not known abuse is inevitable.- Myles Munroe.
