remarked, “Success is a responsibility”. The reason why God is our co-author. You have a job to do; you have to choose your own life to live. Success depends on the person. Current standard of firms now is Multitasking and knowledge is very important. There is no escaping knowledge. And one can only be equipped through reading. As the saying goes “An intelligent person learns from his own experiences but a more intelligent person learns from the experiences of others”. Books are created from the rich experiences of other people”. “There are different means that may get you into a job but to be able to remain in that job will highly depend on what you could offer. Good intentions and competencies will help you realize your success. When you have good intentions, resources will follow, everything will follow. And do not seek self-glorification. If you seriously aim for success, you must pay the prize, read and read some more, for there is no escaping the “Knowledge Age”.

With excitement she answered me, “That would be a motivational book, a book that tells of my journey. I believe no matter how simple your life is there is a lesson worth sharing. That book will be about selfempowerment and inspirations with a Christian touch. And in that book will include photographs which I will capture myself as Photography is one of my passions”. To conclude the interview, I told her that a lot of students would be able to read this article. There are the freshmen, ideally searching for mentors and there are the graduating students, who will soon be dispersed into the realities of the employment world. Is there a particular message she would like to impart to them? Agreeably, she choose! Remember, that what you are in the present is because of what you did in the past. And whatever it is you do in the present will surely be your future. Till then…Godspeed!
