When we think of a career for ourselves, we generally think of becoming a doctor, engineer, lawyer, scientist, clerk, officer, and so on mostly because in all of the careers I mentioned the education part is constant. Our parents want a safe and secure life for us and that’s why they advise us to study well, clear some examinations, and join a job that should be secure and have respect in society.
But some people aren’t born to do normal things and live a normal life, they take risks and try to indulge in a career that is a passion for them.
