We got into Shehu Shagari College of education staff school as early as 7am since the inauguration was going to be on the assembly ground and seeing the students file out and going through the routine of assembly took me back to my secondary school days and I had to admit within me that I miss my teenage days.
After the national anthem we proceeded to the business of the day and I was so glad to see students ready to learn because the stereotype is that Northerners are dull but after testing one or two students, we went round the classes and the students were more than excited to be around us.
Someone might be wondering why I'm reporting this, well, first, I'm more than excited about press club; I developed every writing skill I have today there. I remember I used to see my English mistress as mean and wicked but looking back, I'm very grateful so I always strive to groom young talents the way someone guided me aright.
Secondly, I'm a youth corps member and there are many projects you can engage in to impact your home community. Now this is not my personal project but I'm most grateful to volunteer my time.
I know many corpers who call me names like ITK and ask me if NYSC is my father's property the way I always want to work in my cds, well, NYSC is not my father's property but I hate to be passive wherever I am. The truth is if you can't go the extra mile and participate in activities now that you're serving your father land, when you start working you can't be dedicated then and like I say, try to brighten up the corner where you are because I'm miles away from SSCOE staff school but the smiles on the faces of the students and the way they were asking "aunty when will you come back" is still lingering!
