“Don’t underestimate or overestimate things. Those who tend to underestimate things usually have unpleasant surprises. When tempted to take things easy, be careful. Things are not always as easy as they seem. It is better to be a little over-prepared than finding yourself unprepared. Those who tend to overestimate things give up easily because they focus on problems. Don’t expect things to be easy. Difficulties are part of a normal life. You learn more from challenges than from easy things. Remember to include God in the journey of life. Don’t attempt to go on your own. Life is too big for one person to handle alone.”
Mrs. Ritha Maidom Lampadan, who didn’t know English until she was eleven year old, now serves as a dean and senior lecturer in the Faculty of Arts and Humanities.
