Have you ever had a dream that you live day and night till the day comes when you open your eyes to find yourself living it in reality?!?
Dreams are all we have. They are actually what keep us alive, looking forward to the next day, next hour and next breath…everybody will have dreams he or she will keep looking out for, work hard for – and sometimes we die to make our dreams come true.
One of those dreams I had was to live in Spain…well…who doesn’t want to live in Spain? That’s a question that struck my head one day when I was surfing the internet looking for my next step.
It was ‘where would I want to do my masters’? I was looking for a marketing masters’ course… but still the question was…why Spain?
Well, let me give you a brief idea first of who I am.
My name is Sarah, an Egyptian, who has been raised in a family with a father and mother and a sweet younger brother…I studied English literature – yeah I know – it has nothing to do with marketing!
After my graduation I went to work in a company where they needed a secretary in the marketing field and there I started my marketing love story. This drove me to study this field more and to work in it.
I went to study some free courses and took a diploma in marketing. It sparked my passion. People told me that you can market anything out of the way you explain it because you love it.
This gave me a good edge and due to my successes I was recommended to teach marketing on the same diploma course that I was studying a few years ago 🙂 It was one of my dreams that came true. I was so successful and had great students.
That took me to another level where I was chosen to be a marketing manager for an educational academy. But still there was one dream that wasn’t yet achieved: Spain was a dream for me since I was a kid. I never knew why Spain?
But when people asked me why, my answer always was – it looks like me: spontaneous, free and wild. That’s how I see myself.
Unfortunately, not everything will go smoothly in life – it is never that sweet. Within two years I lost my father and my brother – which meant I lost my whole male side of the family. You can imagine how much that can affect you.
How would you feel? Would you be less trusting about everything? Would you lose hope in everything and in life itself? Especially you feeling all alone in the world and instead of having people there to save your back you feel like ‘I’m my mother’s back’. She is all that remains for me as well as my three adorable dogs who were my baby kids.
After a year of being sad and heart-broken (and who wouldn’t be if he or she were in my shoes?) I was going by and something hit me again “SPAIN”.
An old dream started to stimulate my sad heart, trying to inject some life again…Spain. Why not? It has marketing – my passion – and the university is just on the shore…I can study, eat, run, bike, know new people, feel the sun playing on my cheeks and the dropping rain play with my hair. Why not?
When all your passion is just a few steps in front of you, when all you need is almost there and when all you need to hold onto your dream and just live it deep inside your heart, it will come true.
My dream got me to leave everything behind, sell everything I had and come here to MIUC to let the sun, water, nature and life cure my broken heart and collect its pieces to draw an amazing portrait for another dream to come true. Here I am in my beloved place studying an area that is my passion.
Come to Spain and let it purify you with its spontaneous, messy life. ️
See you later to tell you why marketing…
