I Will Be Sharing The Same Alma Meta With My Daughter


It is always good to celebrate when good things happens to us, something extraordinary that makes us happy and made history.

This post is about myself and my daughter, we both achieved something remarkable within a week. It did not just happen, or neither was it a coincidence, but the fact that it came at once made it a bit of history.

I totally lost hope of serving my fatherland in the youth service scheme exercise (NYSC) where graduates goes to serve for a period of one year.

Although it was not my intention to serve as I just wanted to focus on being the entrepreneur I am meant to become, all my mates went for service, finished before my own mobilization came a little over a year.

Even though I still hesitate, but was persuaded by people who meant well for me and I accepted to serve, i took up up challenge of dealing with the children as well as discharging my primary assignment.

Don’t also forget that I am a single mother of six 6, my daughter has been in the university studying architecture.

My service year came to and end last week 31st October 2019, and a week later which is 6th of November my first daughter finished her school too as a graduate of Architectural Sciences.

One other coincidence is that we will both have a certificate from the same institution because the school i went to is an affiliate of her own school, and I was awarded my Bsc certificate from her school, this virtually means that we will be sharing the same Alma Meta.

This also shows that whatever we set our minds to, we can achieve. Despite the challenges that life has thrown and is still throwing at us, we pulled through. I think we deserve some accolades

Read Why Mothers Are Always Outstanding


Mothers are always outstanding because of their roles in the home and in the life of everyone who lives around them.

They lay down everything for nothing in return precisely. How they double up as caregivers and and home builders.

The most fulfilling duty of moms out there is to see their children happy.

That alone comes with a whole lot of sacrifices. The happiness of a mother often lies beneath her children’s, because she feels that 99.9% of caring, protecting, and making sure that everyone is comfortable lies with her.

What they eat, how they leave and the environment they leave in all forms the basis of being happy.

No mother will want an unhealthy, insecure and hazardous environment where the life of her children is at risk.

These in most times comes with comprehensive knowledge of the overall situation.

Considering the kind of world we live in today, where children are being kidnapped for one thing or the other.

Evil has taken over the place with little or no adequate security to go round everyone. The world has turned into a monster where even parents/adults are not safe.

This is why mothers need to be more vigilant and create time to study everything that affects their children.

Get to know their schools, the environment and the people living in it. How your kids relate to people and distance them from questionable character.

Even family members, in this case, should not be trusted 100% because the majority of the kidnapping that takes place today is being the mastermind of such relatives.

Uncles and aunties should be kept at the close tap to know most of their move and what they are up to.

It is also necessary to educate the children by teaching them how to be vigilant on their own since we are not always gonna be around them and so they will want to know how to be smart on their own.

They most also are caution against collecting things from strangers e.g Snacks. These things have over the years played a very vital role in making children fall, victims of circumstance.

Therefore, we should make it a point of duty to stay at peace with one another in our environment, treat people with love and respect in other to avoid falling victims of mischievous and dangerous people.
