Little do we know how much our world is about to change if only we have an inquisitive mind. While polishing our technical skills is pivotal, having the courage to take on challenges and step out of comfort zone to embrace change carries the same if not more weight to a successful future. We may find it easy to believe that some people are destined to succeed, but let us not forget that a river can cut through rocks with its persistence. It is imperative to keep an open mind to learn as much as you can, and dream as much as you dare. Enjoy the everlasting learning journey and never settle your curiosity!
