Memoir of a Brand Manager (Part 9)
In #memoir6, I shared that I studied Biochemistry before embarking on a career in Marketing. Full disclosure, before then, I was in Medical school for three years, including pre-Med (long story for another day 😊).
My journey through Med school was didactic. Though a very restless phase, it revealed me to me. My creative juices bubbled and I started to write poems. I got involved in student politics; was elected Deputy Chairman of the Medilag Students Council, Member, Unilag’s Students Council, Treasurer, Federation of African Medical students; ‘kingmaker’😊.
All these as a reserved, shy 18-year-old, part 1 medical student. So well-known to be reserved that after I had first campaigned for office before my 200-strong classmates, one of the closest to me, my anatomy table partner asked me if I took ‘something’ before I went on stage!
Med school was a place of self-discovery. Looking back to connect the dots, God had a plan which didn’t seem to make sense then.
“Indeed, He who watches over you will neither slumber nor sleep”. (Psalm 121:4)
Trust Him with your journey.
