  I love football. My dream is to be a football player one day. I’m a good player in my home too. My football coach always has praises for me in the way I play the game. My favourite football player is Pepe from Portugal’s National Team. I want to follow in his footstep to be a great football player once I grow up.

My dream job is to be a cartoonist. I love cartoons since I was a baby and often wondered about the kind of imagination a cartoonist has. As I became older, my interest in drawing increased. I love art and now am taking several art classes in Agathians. I want to explore deeper into cartoons to be a creative and successful cartoonist once I grow up.

  My dream is to be a mechanical engineer. I love machines and technology. I do some simple repair jobs at home in my free time. In fact, my love towards machineries grew deeper as I always watch Discovery Science: National Geography programme on television. Of course, I want to be a good example to my other brothers in my home to help them be successful in their lives too.

I love the ambience of luxurious hotels in Malaysia. I witnessed our latest fundraising event in one of the prestigious hotels in Klang Valley which inspired me more. Since then, I wanted to be a 5-star hotel manager. My dream got stronger and I want to own a hotel before I celebrate my 50th birthday. I know that I can!

My dream is to become a teacher. I strongly believe that knowledge and wisdom are the most expensive assets anyone can possess. As a teacher, I would be one of the “world’s richest men” by spreading knowledge to my future fellow students. Over the years, I learnt that it is not easy to be a successful teacher. I will be one in the near future.

Making Wishes Come True

Most of us have the time and resources to make our wishes come true. But for children with life-threatening medical conditions, their focus and energy are channeled into battling and hopefully overcoming their illnesses. These children spend more time in the hospital than in school and are separated from their family for extended periods of time while they undergo treatments. Needless to say, their wishes, hopes and dreams are put on the back burner. Make-A- Wish Malaysia strongly believes in t...
