Kamdora Story: A Journey To My Career

A Journey To My Career

When I was a child, My mother asked me what I wanted to become in life and I said a medical doctor. Just like every normal ‘Yoruba’ mother, she was overjoyed. I am sure she was happy because she was going to badge the title ‘mama doctor’.

When I was an adolescent, my father asked me what I wanted to become in life. I said an actor. Immediately, he said “God forbid”. I honestly wondered what God was forbidding but I paid no attention to him.

When I was graduating from junior secondary school, the counselor asked me what I wanted to be in life. I answered and said “a medical doctor” but the unexpected happened.

I resumed senior secondary school with the mind that my dreams of becoming a doctor is sooner than I expected. I checked the board to know where I was fixed and my heart stopped. “They” put me in commercial class!

I was angry. I stormed into the counselor’s office and complained bitterly. She brought out the aptitude test scores and said I was meant to be in science class. She went further to check my NECO result and noticed why they put me in commercial class. I aced business studies. Honestly, I felt like crying but I knew too well that won’t solve the problem. It would only give me headache and I was in too much pain to add more.

The counselor told me to wait a week so they could rectify it and I felt better. I walked into science class imagining myself as a doctor. My imagination was cut short when the bell went off for the next period. It was time for Physics class!

I walked eagerly to the physics laboratory and guess what? We had a test! If I say I was in shock, I would be telling a lie because “shock” is an understatement compared to what I felt. I brought out my sheet of paper and did what I could do. My teacher laughed and said “this test would prove to some people that science is not their calling!” I looked at him with a smile and said in my mind “bring it on!”
