102. WILL YOU PRIORITIZE THE PURCHASE OF A CAR OVER YOUR EDUCATION? For A Better Tomorrow - Jack Lookman - Rita Nnamani - Ire kabiti


The appeal of having your first car as a teenager is indisputable. There are many reasons to want a car, including the independence it offers, the status it might confer, and the ease of not needing to rely on friends or family for a lift. However, it is crucial to carefully assess if prioritizing the purchase of a car over investing in your education is a sensible move.

Consider the long-term advantages of education first. A car can be convenient and bring instant joy, but an education sets the groundwork for your future. Gaining an education can lead to improved career prospects, increased earning capacity, and a more profound comprehension of the world. The knowledge and abilities you acquire via school will benefit you for the rest of your life. A car, on the other hand, is a depreciating asset that will eventually need replacing.

Second, think about the financial implications. Cars are expensive to purchase and maintain. The cost of insurance, gas, repairs, direct and indirect taxes, and regular maintenance can mount up quickly. If you decide to use your money for a car instead of tuition, textbooks, or other necessary educational expenses, you may find yourself unable to pay for these things later on. However, investing in your education is an investment in yourself that will pay off handsomely in the long run. 

Education also offers benefits beyond the classroom. It helps you develop critical thinking, problem-solving, and a more expansive view on life—all of which are priceless tools that will help you successfully navigate both professional and personal challenges. Furthermore, waiting to buy a car does not preclude you from ever owning one. Having finished your schooling and landed a steady job, purchasing a car will probably be easier and less stressful financially.

In conclusion, it is important to consider the long-term benefits of schooling even though it’s tempting  to want a car. Making the decision to put your education ahead of the instant joy of having a car takes discipline and insight. In the end, having an education will give you a better platform to realize your goals and create certain opportunities that owning a car cannot give.

Thank you very much for your time.
