She got it all planned out, to finish her college at her late teen age, gain admission into the university, graduate at her early twenties and start up her family at ease, little did she know life never work that way, life creates it own part for us not minding our plans.
At thirty she still struggle to pass her exams, no admission yet talk more University degree. When would you get married everyone asked, don't you know your age?The once pretty angel admired by many had became the one always pointed at in disgust. She wail and tear down each day, what was my crime she kept asking, I did everything right, studies has never been an issue for me why do I keep failing?
Now she has given up on studies, she is into skill acquisition but was that her dream? No she took what was available to her, when the desirable is not available, the available becomes the desirable. Gradually skill became her passion, she grew to love it seeing how well she can sew, everyone loved her style, the little seamstress became a fashion designer, happiness started growing inside her once more, she became self employed, although she loved her first dream so much but that wasn't what life planned for her.
A fashion designer known everywhere by almost everyone is what she has become, now she went into the university so easily but not to be a nurse anymore rather to get certified in fashion, she has a fashion school with students and apprentices.
Her dream was to save lives through being a nurse, she believed that is the only way she can create impact, she kept trying even when it is obvious she is making no headway, until she tried another approach, now she is a fashion designer, she employed many unemployed youths, she has apprentices learning under her. She has saved some people who were wasting away due to lack of employment. Many address her as their role model, Her dream is fulfilled but from different angle, we are not unfortunate sometimes we just need to change direction and fortune will smile at us.
