Dreaming of Africa
I’m studying philosophy, art, and history in my senior year at a public high school, and I have to make a decision soon about which colleges I want to apply to. If I were better at science, I would study zoology as I have always had an interest in animals. I might study anthropology (the study of different people around the world) as at least that will give me the chance to travel abroad. As soon as I finish my senior year, I’m really excited to go to Uganda. If I could find an animal conservation charity that would let me work for them, I would like to stay there for a few months. My dream is to work with gorillas one day.
Although I spent three months reviewing for my final exams, I’m still worried about the results, which are coming out soon. Unless I get A grades in all my subjects (math, chemistry, and biology), I won’t get into college to study medicine. I’ve had to be really disciplined about everything, and I’m not going to celebrate until I know I’ve been successful. I’m also working at an old people’s home as a volunteer because if I can get lots of practical experience, that will also improve my chances. When I graduate, I’m determined to work for the medical charity Doctors Without Borders and work in Africa.
It’s my last semester of school and I’m taking my final exams in a month. If I don’t pass them, I don’t really mind because I’m not very motivated to go on to get a degree. Four years of high school is enough in my opinion! If my mom wasn’t so strict about studying, I would be practicing the guitar, which I love. When I finish school, I’m going to take up the drums. I’m doing geography, French, and music, and they’re all subjects that will be useful in the real world. My dream is to travel around French West Africa and to play and sing with Youssou N’Dour.
