There’s no replacement for hard work, and the concept of having passion, purpose, and positivity would help you achieve your goal.”

Getting support and asking questions will help you succeed” and added further, “Your acumen, capacity for hard work, education, the unique status you have earned, the way you live your life, you protest, the decisions you take - have an impact way beyond your borders - and that’s your privilege. Use this as magic to bring about a positive change in people’s lives.”
