WHY ME? Why do I have to face all the challenges, obstacles and difficulties in my life?”
This is often the question we ask ourselves when nothing seems to be going right for our life. One of my biggest challenge was to find a way to leave Malaysia to get an education from USA with no money & not very good SPM results (I did my STPM but I failed all 4 subjects but got an A for my Art). I achieved that.
Next was to find a way to survive alone in a foreign land and to complete my studies. I achieved that. It was never easy but I never gave up. I just kept on going and going till I graduated with my Bachelors in 1996 & Masters in 1998 from WKU (my graduation pictures) and today pursuing my Doctorate.
You see, challenges, obstacles and difficulties will always be there in our lives. The question is how do you take them as opportunities for your continuous growth and achievements to build character.
As the famous quote by Jack Ma,"Never give up. Today is hard, tomorrow will be worse, but the day after tomorrow will be beautiful." This is what I believe and live by. I wish you all the very best in everything that you do.
