Career Day

Career Day

It was 'Career Day' at school and some parents were giving talks to students on their careers during the special morning assembly. The range of careers were wide. Some parents ran their own businesses while others were bankers, mechanics, nurses and secretaries. Amongst all the career talks, the students seemed most interested in listening to teaching as a career. From the speeches the teachers made, the children came to know how difficult it was planning and carrying out a lesson. They came to know how difficult it was disciplining them and getting them to pay attention in class.

While most of the students listened with great interest at heart, one student, Weiming, who sat right in the middle of the hall, began daydreaming about his own ambition. Weiming looked up to his mother, who was a famous architect. His mother was recently awarded an architectural prize for designing the grand-looking hotel along Raffles Boulevard. Weiming aspired to be a good architect like his mother, designing outstanding and beautiful buildings in the most prominent areas in Singapore.

However, Weiming knew that he would have to be diligent to get to the top in the architectural field and become like his mother. He had always had a close relationship with his mother since he was a young boy. His mother would take him into her drawing room and show him the sketches of buildings she had planned. He also knew the hardships and stress his mother experienced. Sometimes, when her workload was too heavy, Weiming would amuse himself by playing computer games instead of bothering her. Weiming was glad that he had a natural ability to do well in maths, since it is crucial in architecture.

The students' loud applause distracted Weiming from his thoughts and brought his attention back to the school hall and its speakers. That night, he was determined to find out more about architecture as a career. He would go home and have a long serious talk with his mother.
