Northern celebrity, actor and film maker Paul Sambo has advised students to discover themselves early and choose the careers most suitable for them.
The Bauchi State-born artiste, who was a star guest at the Promasidor’s Harness Your Dream career workshop held at the Junior Secondary School Jabi Abuja, admonished the students to believe in their dreams and strive to be the best as they still have time on their side.
He told the students of the host school and those of Junior Secondary School, Tudun-Wada and Junior Secondary School, Wuse, Zone 1, who joined the session, that they should begin to explore their natural talents in the near future.
Sambo said: “Most of you have talents in dancing, acting, but you have to finish your studies because school has a way of nurturing your talent. I decided to pursue Agricultural Science as a course and studied hard and I graduated and today, the world is turning into farming. I now have several farms and most of my friends now come to me for business advice.’’
He explained that while in school, he supported himself with the sales of groundnuts he scavenged from the farms and added the proceeds to whatever he got from his parents to finance his secondary school education in Bauchi.
The popular actor therefore applauded Promasidor Nigeria for the career workshop and described it as a project that would aid students to pursue their dreams effortlessly.
Earlier, the Chairman of the Universal Basic Education Board (UBEB) for the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja, Dr. Kabiru Ibrahim Matazu had urged other corporate organizations to emulate Promasidor on similar initiatives aimed at boosting career awareness among secondary school students.
