Can a domestic helper, who was a Mechanical Engineering Drop-out, find success after taking a career suicide?

Well, this would be a shock to the ones who knew me. Imagine what my mother's reaction after learning what I did. I took a career suicide, and worked as DH in KSA. Here is the story... In my last semester in college, I realized what I wanted to do with my life. And it has nothing to do with working as an engineer for other people's company. I can't afford it anyway. I want to help, protect, and teach my people how to succeed in life.Ironic. But hear me out. As a person, I find my purpose and happiness in being useful to the ones I cared about. I care about Allah.And he instructed me, to care about everything and everyone, especially my family. And the only way I would be able to do that, is to become strong on my own. Face my fears, and use everything I have to build something for my self. Build my own company. Take charge of my life, and live in the best way possible. Without regrets, as I close my eyes on my death bed. Embracing who I am, a Muslim woman, trying to make a better world, by changing herself first for the better, and outwards.And passing this 2 years examination, as a domestic helper, will definitely equip me with the necessary tools and skills I needed to become stronger than I have been. I have the ideas and resources. What I need is the software to function under pressure. Working 16hours/daily for 2 years, will teach me resilience. At least. In Sha Allah [By God's Will] Thank you everyone. And I will pray for your successes in this world and the hereafter. Always.
