Words of Wisdom

The goal of education should be for empowerment of the man, and not for employment. You must invest in yourself as a young person via conscientious reading because it is the only way that you can emancipate yourself from mental slavery and imprisonment.

As a young person, don’t allow anybody, whomever that person may be, to discourage you from believing in yourself and in your abilities. Always know that you can achieve anything that you dream for yourself, your family and for your nation.

There is no impossibility! The only impossibility lies in you not trying. You can achieve your dreams, only if you get to work.
