NOTHING GOOD COMES EASY

After rounding up my secondary school and losing my dad to the cold hands of death in 2009 , I decided to fend for myself in addition to the support I had from my wonderful siblings, I did this because I didnt like depending on anyone wholly, and the fact that finance was limited and things were not all rossy .
So I started off as a phone technician @Third junction in Benin , it wasn't easy for me as I was a bit too young and innocent to hussle in that kind of environment , I faced a lot of reproach , rejections and oppression. I can remember a day that some cultist had to beat me at my work place because I didn't fix their phone to their specification . I also faced a lot of disappointment even among my loved once . Well that's all history , I endured all , passing the stress with joy , I remember those days I use to cry in my room thinking of committing suicide , hmmmn , good old days ..Well that same year I registered for jamb and post-ume , i studied very hard esxpecially after work hours and I was offered to study Medicine and surgery in the prestigious University of Port-Harcourt , River state , Nigeria , having a total score of 60.01 of which the cut off mark was 60 , hmmmn , I was lucky .
2 weeks later , uniport formally brought out list of student that got hostel accommodation , unfortunately my name was not there as my post -Ume score was relatively low comparatively to my colleague that was offered accomdation and the fact that I was not an indigene of river state, placed me out of the list . I felt bad , so I decided to buy a cubicle space in abuja campus from one man O war guy who was offered hostel space there , having Engr Edafe and Dr Donald as room mate .
So I got a space in abuja campus thinking I will now have a place to lay my head . Quit unfortunately , the man O war guy sold same space to one other guy , collecting double money for a single space . I and Edafe confronted him but he stood up against us with his team , asking us to knee down , hitting us badly and threatening to throw us out . Who were we to fight Man O war ?? We were no body .The guy that was allocated with us was another tyrant , so to avoid having differences with him I decided to sleep and live in abuja campus class room while keeping my belongings in the cubicle I rented . It wasn't easy as I spent the whole of my First year in class rooms , sleeping , brushing and eating there .
My first 3 years as a medical student wasn't easy as I had to battle with financial difficulties and accommodation issues . Do you know I never ate meat all through this 3 years . Then I use to cook without adding meat ,because i couldn't afford to buy one . My stew used to be a combination of locally made palm oil, sachet tomatoes , pepper and magi . lol . I don't use to cook soup , what I used to do is to buy soup from mama put (mama abuja ) , I will buy N200 soup then ask her to exchange the meat in the soup to more soup , I will then go to my hostel to make EBA , managing the soup so that it can take me 2-3 days . lol
Life was hard , but it didn't stop me from working very hard , i read by books as if that was the only thing I had to do with my life . As at my yr4 I was a bit stable financially and I was able to settle my accommodation issue . I started working as a private teacher to some well to do student who pay me to put them through basic medical courses . I also involved myself in hostel politics , I started involving myself in all kind of business and opportunities . My financial state changed , combined with the money I used to receive from home , I was much more stable till I finished my medical school .
Thou I was stable I couldn't stop sleeping in class rooms because I was used to it so I stayed and read in class rooms even when I was able to afford good accommodation . I spent 7yrs 6months as a medical student in uniport of which I basically spent 7 years of my days sleeping in hard woods of abuja campus .
This earned me my nick name ( working master , working lord , working skeleton etc ) , as I was always found in class room reading .
I graduated from uniport finally as a Medical Doctor , being one of the best student uniport medical school have ever graduated with result that fancy the eyes of everyone .
Why am I telling this story , this is to tell you that " IT IS POSSIBLE ' . Nothing is impossible in life , don't get discouraged , give life your best hit even in the hardest times , if Nosa the phone technician can turn Dr Nosa , a medical Doctor , so you can be anything you want to be in life , Remember , NOTHING GOOD COMES EASY .
