I Gave Up On My Childhood Dream

I Gave Up On My Childhood Dream

When I was a little girl I dreamed of becoming a wildlife biologist. My mom always made a point to tell me that I could be anything I wanted when I grew up but the school told me you can’t be that if you’re not good at math.

The problem with that is I see people every day overcoming educational struggles to become what they dreamed of.

I still hold on to that dream and so does my daughter and one things for sure I will never let anyone tell her you can’t be that because you’re not good at math.

I will definitely be enrolling in college to get my degree to become a wildlife biologist specializing in big cats, mainly lions.

I chose Lions because I share a kindred spirit with them. Now mind you I love all animals and I watch a lot of different documentaries about animals. There’s just something about big cats that make me happy.

Maybe it’s their power, or beauty or their family ties. Maybe it’s everything. Yeah it’s everything about them. I love everything about these magnificent animals and I will do everything in my power to save them from extinction and to preserve them in the wild and not caged up.

I will pursue my dream and I will achieve it.

Is there a dream you want to pursue? Let me know in the comments and remember you can achieve it and never forget that.
