Rid yourselves of self entitlement – Namayanja to students
Students have been urged to rid themselves of the feeling of entitlement and focus on securing their future through working hard at their studies.
Speaking during Career Guidance and Inspirational talk session for the girl child held at Seeta High School – Main Campus in Mukono district, the RNF Founder and Patron, Hon Rose Namayanja Nsereko called on the participants to work hard regardless of their backgrounds.
“Stop assuming that what is at home will be there forever. Strive to be better than your parents are today, for you have had better amenities than they had,” Hon Namayanja stressed.
The inspirational session held over the weekend ran under the theme; “Balanced ideas destined for success in the 21st century”. It was aimed at helping the girl child in school to make the right career and life choices.
Namayanja further called on the students to set personal goals and work towards achieving them, this she said will propel them towards success in future.
“Set for yourselves goals and they don’t have to be very big. Each of you can be what you want if you know your goals and have the right people around you,” she added.
She also emphasized the need to obey and respect their parents and guardians at all times saying, “Don’t take for granted what anybody above you tells you because they have lived through these events of life.”
On his part, Mr Denis Lindo a consultant and friend of the foundation, rallied the students to persevere through the hardships they encounter during their course of education for it is through these hardships that their characters are molded.
“Not every cry we have in our lives is of danger, sometimes we need to cry to move on to the next level.” Mr Lindo said.
The school principle, Mr Paul Alibundi thanked the foundation for the inspirational talk saying that it has greatly helped the girls in school to focus on their education, preparing them for a bright future.
The Rose Namayanja Foundation holds career guidance and inspirational talks in secondary schools for both teachers and students to help students make the right career choices beyond that level.
