Day 3 of My Lessons from Cambridge grads starts again with a recap:
1) Be everything you ever wanted to be - Nadine Drummond
2) Live for today and make the most of every opportunity - Ainka Alison G
And now for the third tip, courtesy of fellow graduate Pam Dusu who studied Law and is of Ghanaian descent.
Pam is and has always been one of the most organised women I know. Her ability to think clearly and plan the next steps to achieve her goals is unparalleled.
On aside - her family showed me just how much parents can love their children as evidenced in the sacrifices her parents made to ensure that both their children had the best educational foundation possible alongside a firm rooting in their own cultural identity.
At one point it looked as though Pam's dreams had been derailed. Years passed and even I have to admit I began to lose faith - but not Pam. She believed in her destiny and in the face of so many closed doors, year after year, she refused to stop knocking, she DID NOT GIVE UP and eventually those doors had no choice but to give way. She is now LIVING her dream. (YAY!)
One phrase to sum up Pam/ the lesson I learned?
NEVER EVER GIVE UP ON YOUR DREAMS. No matter how long, how hard, how many obstacles or how many licks you've taken. NEVER give up on your dreams because if you believe it you can achieve it.
WELCOME TO THE TAPESTRY OF ME....
These are my words and this is my journey, from 'there to hair'!
My life, the lessons learned in and through love and loves ones; and my hair affairs.
