I’ve always believed that learning should never stop. It is a process one could invest in further knowledge, hone skills, gain experience, and eventually share with others.
We often hear our parents say, “Study well.” or “Study hard.” This is because education is the only inheritance that they can pass on to us that can never be stolen from us. As a kid, I did not understand it, but as an adult, I finally realized what they were talking about.
Unfortunately, education is a privilege in developing countries like ours. It is so precious because it is a key that can open doors to different opportunities. It is a gift that gives. It is a treasure that must not be kept. It can be polished and expanded even more when shared.
Indeed, not everything can be learned in the four corners of a classroom. Furthering your education can be a life-long investment. I was sure that graduate studies would help me in my career, but it was only later that I realized that there was more to it than I had imagined. It is a conduit to something bigger, better, and way more useful than we believe it can be.
