I yearn to become a doctor

I am Menuka Thulmeth Serasinghe Pathirana. I attend St. Thomas' Boys' School, Matara. I am in Grade Four. I wish to become a doctor because when I see people who are sick I feel sad. My only dream is to study hard and achieve my goal to treat patients. I will look after my parents when they are sick. I wish my dream will comes true.


Call it what you may, everyone dreams of being someone or doing something different when they grow up. Some dream of being astronauts, rocket scientists, space explorers… Some dream of being clowns, comedians and running away to a circus. Still others wish to be lawyers, doctors, cricketers or superstars.

The sky, as they say, is the limit to your dreams… But what’s the fun if you keep it all to yourself? So why not put pen to paper, or finger to keyboard, and share with us what you dream of being, when you grow up? You can mail your dreams, along with your photograph to [email protected] yahoo.com or send it by snailmail to ‘Junior Observer’, No. 35, D.R. Wijewardene Mawatha, Colombo 10.
