One day ...

One day ...

One day …

One day I want to become a lawyer.

One day I am going to be a world-class fashion designer.

One day I will be a renowned cake artist.

One day I will be the poet whose voice births the new Nigerian.

One day I’m going to be a dancer.

And one day I’m going to be a singer.

(lady singing)

One day I’ll cook alongside one of the greatest chefs in the world.

One day I want to be a businesswoman.

One day I will build a catering company to serve the entire world.

Some day I would love to be a doctor.

I'd like to be a pilot in future because I enjoy travelling, enjoy being in the sky and watching exciting views.

Heh, I will be a genetic engineer. I would like to find new animal species and to help people. But privately, I will open a teaching program where I will teach some kids how to speak English. And finally, I would like to be a famous blogger, who would speak about problems people have, and to help people to understand that they can live a better life.
