What I want to be When I grow old


My name is Samson teck. I am a boy and I am 15 years old. I am attending Tumul Kin High school. In my future I am planning to have a PHD degree. In order to get this I need to study hard so that I could be able to pass. When I finish my high school I will go for more studies, so that I would be able to get a job. I will go for my bachelor degree, master degree and PHD. When I get my degrees I will come back to Tumul kin to work as an academic director. So that more generations would look upon my path and they could have the same good life as I have. I would want to live at Blue creek because it is close to Tumul kin, and their it is beautiful with colors of the nature. I will work first and get some money to build my self a comfortable house. Then after I get my house equipment, I will find my self a wife and I will have 2 sons. Then we will have a happy family.
