I have never been the type of student who got distinctions, not even an A candidate in high school, but because of determination I pressed on and made it to University and I am now doing my 3rd year. I failed and rose again. I never let the thought of giving up or drop out pass my mind.

It is important that students have passion in their school work in order to excel. I believe passion devotes students to their schoolwork, bringing out all the energy that helps them to stay focused and keeps them away from distractions.
Having passion is as good as a journey navigated on the GPS, because the journey inevitably reaches its destination.
Have you ever wondered what the world would be like if there was no social media? Can you remember the good old days when you were too young to care about how many virtual friends/followers you got because you cared more about making real friends?
I have often heard people say politics is a dirty game. Many a times when l try to engage fellow students in dialogue they are quick to show boredom; Why did you choose Public Management they ask. Why not pick something more understandable like Accounting or HR? Well…
This is my story:
In the 3rd. grade, a girl called Liz and the other kids would laugh at me whenever I said the word “CHOCOLATE”. They would rub it in my face that I could not pronounce tʃɒk(ə)lət/ or “choklat” like normal people do. It didn’t matter that I was generally good at reading and writing or that I got praise from my teacher for being the best in diction that darn word CHOCOLATE always got in the way.
