“If you want it bad enough, you will find a way”!
Lot’s of celebrations happening at WWHQ today.
Apart from the fact that it is my birthday.
Miss WW logged on to her QTAC account today, and was greeted with the offer of a place at the University Of Queensland for Bachelor of Science. Her first preference and the only spot she really wanted to get.
In the beginning…………
This is her grade one year book entry.
In grade 1 she thought that girls were nurses and boys were doctors. By the end of grade 2 she discovered that both men and women could be doctors. From that day on her path has never wavered, she was going to be a doctor.
Her father never went to University, nor did I. I could have but really had no idea what I wanted to do with my life when I finished grade 12. I just sort of slipped into a job in the travel industry and spent 13 years as a high flying corporate travel consultant until I had the girls.
Just because we didn’t go to University, does not mean that my daughter can’t.
Never once have I said she was aiming too high.
I have always told her to follow her dream.
At the end of year 9, she passed the entrance exam and interview and earnt her spot at the prestigious Queensland Academy for Science, Maths and Technology.
She spent 3 years working very hard and graduated at the end of last year. She had to wait until the 6th of January to get her results (she did the IB not the normal Queensland OP). Her score was more than high enough, so today we celebrate her offer to go to UQ, the only place she wanted to be accepted in to.
Come March, step one of the very long road ahead to becoming a neuro-surgeon begins.
I have no doubt in my mind she will make it through over a decade of study before she is even close to being a surgeon, and neither is she.
She has a goal, she has a plan, she will succeed.
So proud of her and her acheivements.
Never tell your child to stop dreaming, anything is possible.
Any child can acheive anything they set their mind too, if they are taught how to use their thoughts and the amazing power they have been given. You can teach your children how to become masters of their own destiny with the help of my book…..
