Since young, I knew that I wanted to become a business executive. I wanted to be in the management group of a multinational company that I own or work with, to create revenue models that will bring about growth and expansion for the company.
When a miraculous financial provision came in under the aegis of the government of Rivers state in Nigeria, I knew it was a sign from God to step into my destiny. So with a dream to become a business executive, I came to Malaysia in 2006 to further my studies.
But for every great dream, there are great obstacles. My first years in Malaysia were not easy at all.
My impression of the locals was that they were aloof toward foreigners. For a while, I felt disconnected from society. The laws of the land also made it difficult for a foreign national to get a job in Kuala Lumpur, and all I could do was hold on to hope.
Work experience was necessary to complement my studies. I felt that without it, my learning in Malaysia would not have been complete.
It was at this crucial juncture that God intervened and made a way for me. I attended a walk-in interview with Scicom (MSC) Berhad, a business process outsourcing company, and got a job right after completing my postgraduate studies.
If you, like me, are on the way toward the fulfilment of your dreams, my encouragement is this: hold on to hope and put faith in God.
The manifestation of our desires could take longer than expected, but my experiences are my evidence that miracles are possible through hope and faith.
