My goal is to be a famous cricketer

I am Thisum Akalka Herath. I study in Grade Seven at Anuradhapura Central College. I am 12 years old. My ambition is to become a famous cricketer in Sri Lanka. I work hard and go for practices every day. I like batting the most. My favourite cricketers are Mahela Jayawardana and Kumara Sangakkara. I hope my dream comes true.

Hope, wish, fantasy….

Call it what you may, everyone dreams of being someone or doing something different when they grow up. Some dream of being astronauts, rocket scientists, space explorers… Some dream of being clowns, comedians and running away to a circus. Still others wish to be lawyers, doctors, cricketers or superstars.

The sky, as they say, is the limit to your dreams… But what’s the fun if you keep it all to yourself? So why not put pen to paper, or finger to keyboard, and share with us what you dream of being, when you grow up? You can mail your dreams, along with your photograph to [email protected] or send it by snailmail to ‘Junior Observer’, No. 35, D.R. Wijewardene Mawatha, Colombo 10.
