    Good one. Really think pre-teen Agnes is in the right. Not everybody should go to the university. We trully have to take charge of the events in our lives. Unemployment rates will never go down, so rather than whine about high unemployment rates, we can create emploment for ourselves. The average Nigerian youth WANTS A WHITE COLLAR JOB at all costs. Nobody wants a “Menial” job. Ask any youth where he sees himself in the future and you’ll hear ” Oil company, Bank manager, some highflying job” without a thought to his or her talent! Technical schools, beauty schools, catering schools, fashion institutions, name it are being underutilised. My friends and I once saw a painting a guy did and we were impressed and wanted to commision the artist to do something for us but alas he wasn’t reallly interested and could only complain about the country being too hard and jobs not being available. I get this awesome feeling of accomplishment when i build up something from scratch especially when it was a messy job. Throughout our school days our parents fend for us full time- tuition, leisure activities, room and board, just name it. We want to be comfortable and are not ready to leave our comfort zones. In cultures where youths get part-time jobs to supplement their upkeep and tuition and where parents literally kick their kids out of thier houses when they turn 18-21, the youths get an early sense of independence which starts in adolescence. We trully need to take charge of our future and i admire the little girl! Looking forward to more

    Lawson I am glad to see this devalopment in you and WOW cake. Please keep the good job going.

    However, I do agree with the comment of Laura but wish to add that Eduation up to University level will always boost whatever trade or technical area we wish to pursue. Qualitative education will always remain an asset to the individual and will manifest in the way he thinks,talks,comport himself,relate with others,contribute in national discus and handle personal issues and businesses.

    So, I think agnes should still aspire to be educated to the higest level her ability can cope with irrespective of the fortune of Funke.Our lives are different one from another and using others as our yardstick will be wrong. Funke may be unlucky while Agnes may be lucky to get fantastic offer after graduation.

    finall, I think with good education, Agnes will thrive better in her chosen trade and be an employer of vast number of our unemployed youths thereby reducing unemployment in Nigeria.

    I wish Agnes the best.
