I feel like I’m at that age where everything is confusing. I’m 24 and some of my friends are married or engaged, others are already parents or expecting. And then there’s me; struggling to figure out the right career path for me!
All my life I have always loved children and children are fond of me too. So, it’s no surprise that I am an Early years practitioner by profession. But I also love fashion. I often think about what life would be like if I dropped everything and concentrated on building my career in the fashion industry. Question is: where do I start? Please don’t get me wrong, I love working with children and I have learnt so much about myself and for that I feel so grateful but I can’t help but feel somewhat stuck.
Since leaving secondary school, I have worked in Nursery after Nursery. Nursery is all I know and I think I want change! I say this but I am also currently at university pursuing a childhood education degree in the hopes of becoming a child therapist; how ironic. Maybe I just need to figure out a way of combining both my passions.
I have always dreamed of having my own clothing line as well as starting a foundation that helps disadvantaged children in my home country, Uganda. Perhaps I could have a clothing line that caters to all ages however all proceeds from children clothes go to the foundation? I don’t know; I guess I have a lot thinking to do.
