"Never stop learning."

Ever since I entered Primary school, I knew I wanted to learn more than what I was provided within schools and textbooks. 

I read a variety of books, and constantly sought for new and interesting information from encyclopedias (I love getting these as birthday presents), fiction and non-fiction books, classical and contemporary novels. 

In college, I took up online courses from various platforms: Udemy, Edx, Digital Marketing Institute (where I received my Professional Diploma in Digital Marketing), and Coursera. Despite receiving what society determined as "adequate education" from materials provided in classrooms, through experiences and interactions in my day-to-day life, I strongly believe that learning cannot come to an abrupt, awkward halt after graduating and upon entering the workforce.

Regardless of where you derive your learning from and how you learn:

Always be open to new opportunities to learn and grow.
