New Beginning

in Hive Naijalast month

At this point in my life, I am overwhelmed with mixed emotions, I don’t know if I should be happy or confused or sad. It was a difficult moment for me as I kept trying to process my thoughts and my emotions. I am excited that I’m about to begin a new phase in my life and then I am a bit unsure about what the future holds but in all, I am ready to explore life and achieve a lot.

Last year April when I got my National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) letter and I was posted to the north, I cried my eyes out. I had plans of going over to a place far away from home but the north wasn’t part of my decision. Well, I had zero choices at this point because my parents already said I had to take it and I am going whether I like it or not. They made me see that I was about to experience a new life all on my own.

As usual, the NYSC starts with a 3-week camp, where we get to stay in a particular environment for 3 weeks and learn about the NYSC program and also go through some training sessions as we are meant to serve the country. When I got to the camp area, I didn’t like it and I had to adjust because that was my first time staying in the hostel. After a few days, I made some friends and then I finally adapted to the place.

When the 3 weeks elapsed we were all sent to our place of assignment where we got to work for the state in one way or another. I was sent to a Private Tertiary institution. I didn’t want to teach. When I first saw it, I had people tell me to reject it. Well, this time I didn’t let anyone decide for me so I accepted it and I became a Microbiology lecturer.

I had a different view of the North but then I met something different. These people have to be the most accommodating people on Earth. Yes, there was a language barrier and also a religion barrier but then I was able to blend in so well. They made me feel accepted. Even though sometimes I still want to go home to my mummy hehe.

I got to learn a bit of their language since that was the most common language spoken there instead of English. I learned how to eat their food, some were accepted by my taste buds, while my taste buds rejected some of it. Either way, I loved every bit of it. I got some outfits from them also, I learned how to wear the Abaya and hijab and I was able to understand certain things regarding their culture.

The Security in charge of our accommodation calls me a Smiling girl because whenever I say Hi to him I always have a smile on my face. It wasn’t easy but I am super happy I got posted to this place and now I have an experience on how things work in the North and how things work in another Religion. Oh by the way call me “Hauwa” instead of “Bee”😁😁

Anyway, I am done with serving and right now I am on to a new phase of life. I am going to take it one step at a time and I will eventually be Pawfect.

Moving away from and checking out other cultures is the best way to appreciate the larger world and to accept the similarities in all humans, along with the diversity with makes for rich experiences. I am happy you had a good learning experience and I am sure this experience will shape you very well in all you do in the future. Well written.
