As a child, when asked on what profession I would love to become when I'm grown up, the only thought on my mind was being a lawyer. Seeing them clad in their white and black, heads held high, eloquent speech. I revered them like gods. Ohhh! Lawyers, in my eyes made other professions and occupations look benign and small.
I liked doctors, but I had and still have a morbid fear of blood that's not mine, and I hate drugs, pills, tablets, syringes, the antiseptic smell of hospitals gives me goose bumps, so, being a doctor was out of it.
What made me want to become a lawyer, you would ask, I was maybe nine or ten. A friend of the family, came to see dad. I was impressed by his English, using big grammar (though I never knew what the words meant). So from then on, I loved the profession and worked hard to become one, but thanks to JAMB and all the admission wahala, my childhood dream of becoming a SAN was shattered and I ended up studying Mass communication much to my disappointment. But you know what, it was a blessing in disguise, cos I loved studying it, though who knows, I may end up going back to study law cos I think I'm still secretly in love with that course, its not too late to learn right?
So dear friends, What was your childhood dream job and how many of you did fulfill yours? Let's chat people.
