So as a young person, don’t ever think that you are too small to earn more. In case you want to give your skills away for free, just ensure that you are volunteering in an organization that you dream to work in. And even as you volunteer, do it as though you are being paid. Before you know it, your skills will be recognized and who knows, that is how you will get your dream job. Intern in one or two organizations, but otherwise, don’t do anything for free. Know what you stand for and stick to it. That is how you will earn respect with everybody including employers. But again, if you want to shoot yourself in the foot, it is your choice!
What is life without God? With God, all impossibilities become possible. Pray, pray, pray until something happens. Mr. Ofunja recognizes this fact and encouraged the students to cast all their burdens to God insisting that, however hard you work, if God is not in the picture, it is vain. God will enable you to climb those mountains brought your way in form of enemies. He will give you the courage to look fear in the eyes and say, “look here fear. You got nothing on me!” He also reminded them that even as they focus on God, they should give up procrastination and all time wasters. That with commitment, they will achieve their ultimate goal which is success in their exams.
