Truthful Tuesday – Careers

The Question

When you were in grade school, what did you want to be when you grew up? Were you right, or did you end up doing something else?


I think I always wanted to be a doctor. There was a brief time when in high school I realized that being very good in mathematics, I could easily opt for a career in engineering, but my paternal grandmother opposed the idea. Girls could be doctors or teachers but not engineers!

I did get into medical school, or college as we call it here, and studied there for four years. Then the story changed and I decided to get married and start a family!

I was right in that that I had an aptitude for the medical profession. I was good at diagnosing diseases, at putting the patients at ease and most importantly, I had a good grasp of my subjects. But life had other plans for me. I could have continued my studies after marriage, but then other factors played a role in this game called life and I finally thought that since I cannot continue with my medical career, I should withdraw from college. I later gave an exam to get a bachelor’s degree in science.

I ended up being a wife and a mother. As careers go, this is the most difficult and most rewarding career. But I think the least appreciated.

    1. Oh Leigha it’s been too long. I tried doing that after my son was born, 34 years ago but the process was very complicated. I am happy with what I am today. I do have the knowledge to help my family and friends and that’s what counts. Thanks
