by Basit Mololuwa Azeez
Everyone has dreams. Whether to become a scientist and discover new and amazing things or to become a neurosurgeon and be the highest-paid doctor, people dream about their future. I have dreams for the future just like everyone else. Dreams of the good life, with lots of money, and fast cars! And I will do whatever it takes to achieve it. College is my first step to achieve my dream. Currently, I am a student in Government Junior Model School. I do my best to keep my grades up because I know that they will help me into college. I dream of going to University to get a medical degree in medicine (Neurosurgeon).
After I have my medical degree, I plan to get a job working with a hospital. I hope I can lend a hand in finding new, more effective ways of operating on patients with brain issues. Outside of my job, I plan to buy a large home. I dream of settling down in an urban area, someplace that's not too big. Hopefully, by the time I get a house, I'll have a wife and can start a family. I dream of having a son to carry on the family name.
