After I acquired higher education, my career took a different turn. While initially I was planning on establishing myself as a high school teacher, this changed from then. Many reasons contributed to this change. First, I was inspired by how much higher education would be of help to many people out there. It came to my understanding that the type of higher education one receives in life is very instrumental in determining the kind of life the person lives. I felt like I would accomplish much by facilitating access to higher education to young people. This would help them shape-up their future for the better.
In the future, I foresee myself being a Director in an institution dealing with higher education. This could be an institution of higher learning, or any other institution that directly deals with higher education. I would like to be in the decision making level on issues of higher education. This would help me make the changes I envision in this noble sector. Even though I might start my career as a lecture or facilitator, the goal would be to head a relevant institution. In addition to that, I would also like to be involved with institutions which provide funds for higher institution. This could be in the government, or any non-governmental organization providing funds to enable people access higher education.
