Lately, we’ve seen these smartly dressed youths around town. They are young and fashionable, rushing places and seemingly busy. The query that pops up in our minds is, ‘’Where did they get all those dimes to shop?»
The answer: Most of them are students who have worked so hard to achieve what they have. They have the liberty to shop whatever they need without pestering their parents for the slightest item.
Your parent might not give you airtime, buy you wear all the clothes you want or even pay for the concerts you want to go to, but, because you don’t want to ever forget these holidays, start job-hunting and get busy.
Through reading newspapers with job vacancies, visiting different places and not forgetting NGO’s like Red Cross that recruit volunteers who are paid good money.
When you make it, save it for that dream shoe you have been dying to buy or invest it in an important project like poultry or rabbit rearing for sale, and if that doesn’t go well the first time, don’t get discouraged, keep on trying.
Stay in touch with your school friends and relatives who might give you the latest information about any job opening! And soon things will work out!
