“I was a very shy and timid person as a child, which even continued as a teenager. I hardly talk when people were around and I suffered greatly from inferiority complex. I always felt like I wasn't good enough but all that changed when I discovered my talent in music and instrumentation” – David Mychael
My name is David Chizirim Michael but musically I am known as David Mychael. I was born into a family of four blessed children. (Three boys and a girl and I happen to be the last child of my parents). My father is a Petroleum Engineer / Surveyor while my mother is a businesswoman. I attended so many schools up to my SS3. I had my nursery school at Semester High School Lagos. I had my primary school education at Mandate Private College, Akesan Lagos and Saint Saviours High school. I had my secondary school education at Saint Saviours, El crystal star school and Alpha Academy, Eagle Island, Port Harcourt, Rivers State where I finished. I am currently a 200 level at the Enugu State University Of Science And Technology (ESUT), Enugu.
My childhood was great, fun and filled with so many fond memories. We weren't exactly rich but my parents did their best to make sure that we had the best of everything from education to a comfortable livelihood. Although my dad wasn't always around because of the nature of his job, he made sure we had all. Personally, I was a very shy and timid person as a child, which even continued as a teenager. I hardly talk when people were around and I suffered greatly from inferiority complex. I always felt like I wasn't good enough. There was always this ‘I Can’t’ phrase accustomed to my life. Even my teacher would ask a question that I know perfectly well that I knew the answer to but I was just too afraid and scared to answer. I never wanted to take risks/chances. Even though everyone knew that I was good at drawing and painting, I still felt helpless. When I would watch my friends partake in music and drama, I would feel useless because I was just too afraid to try until I discovered my talent in music and instrumentation, things started to turn around for me.
My salvation is something that’s greatly cherished. I knew I had to give my all to Jesus when I entered the university because I knew definitely life would, of course, be hard for me. Even though I had started out as a musician, I soon got to realize that I wouldn't be able to do anything or go any far if I don't secure a spot for God in my life. It happened when I was introduced to DOMINION CITY church at the first week in school. It was on a Wednesday and a fellowship day. From there, I became deeply active in God’s work, joined the choir and started giving my time to God even though it was taking some part of my lecture time.
At the beginning, I was having problems with understanding the true nature of God even though I had been introduced to know Him since I was a child. I felt like I had not really flown His presence in my life. Having Christ (Holy Spirit) in me helped me to know God for who He truly is.
The journey has been such an amazing one. The more I got to know God the more I began to uncover those mysteries that have been a huge block in my life.
In my last words, don't lose faith in God and never doubt His existence. He was there, still is and will always be there for you. Thank you.
