My Fulfilled Dream
by Amaechi Odimeze
Garfield could hardly differentiate between day and night when his parents died untimely.
His old grandmother took the responsibility of training him up, but then her trade was too weak to carry the financial weight and demand of the family. Garfield had to embark on menial jobs to help himself as he was growing like the shoot of a maize.
Soon he finished his primary education and began earnestly to attack the rigours of secondary education using his strength and money. That rung was crossed. But his dream of becoming the president of Megamba, his country, just like his model, James Arthur Garfield of the United States of America, kept on burning like coal. Later he made it just after his university education. How did he? And what magic did he use? Read and find out.
