Aspirations From The Slum

Aspiration from the Slums

This is a story of an ambitious 17 years old boy, Taiwo Shemede who was born and lives in this Lagos slum on stilts called Makoko. The hope for an opportunity to play pro soccer not only makes his days more enjoyable but makes for a tomorrow full of possibilities and thus he?s not deterred by the predicaments of being born in this slum and not being able to do anything about it for now. But rather he remains focused and is positive that one day he can play pro-soccer abroad and be as accomplished as his football Icon Lionnel Messi who presently plays for Barcelona FC.
