Luck is Not In Our Hands, but Decisions is in Our Hands

Brett Rawson


Hello everyone!

I am a student in 12th grade at ZEC. I want to go to college because it increases my level of knowledge and will learn more. when I know the value of knowledge I started to dream about going to college. My greatest wishes to become a judge when I complete my education. Now I am very lucky and luck is not in our hands, but decision is in our hands. Luck can’t make our decision but our decision can make luck…

Education means to me freedom of speech. And can defense from our right. With college degree I will have a strong sense of pride and self. By getting education I am able to stablish a house teaching for those who deprive from getting knowledge in my village. When I have daughter I wish her brilliant future too. Thanks. 

Best wishes, Shakira Mohammed Saleem
