I’ve seen amazing almost real sketches with pencils and pens, but a car
built out of scarp metals and condemned motor parts? Now that’s
inspirational. Its okay to assume he probably took on the awesome idea
to support his family, gain financial freedom or make a name for
The 21 year old Nigerian Student, Muzzamil Umar, in his
final year in secondary school from Kebbi said he built his first car to
help him go to school.
Now how cool can that be? During my childhood days, you became the
school’s most popular kid if you had the latest gadgets or rocked the
most expensive shoes and by that i mean ”Cultina’s” from Bata and
Leventist shops back in the early 90’s.
I’m wondering how Muzzamil Umar felt when he first drove his
self made car into the school premises? What would have gone through the
minds of his class mates and teachers? And his parents?
I’m hoping this post inspires us to look within and change the world we live in now.
