Four years is not a short period of time. It can define someone’s life. Within four years, from the most vulnerable creature on earth, a baby grows to become a question-totting creature, questioning everything under the sun with the newly-acquired language skills. Four years, can make or break someone’s career. For many Malaysian university-goers, four years is the usual time for any bachelor’s degree program. Once you have completed your degree, you will receive your scroll during the convocation ceremony. I call it Moment of Glory, after Scorpions’ epic song. We are born a champion, a triumphant one that has won a million-mile equivalent race at micro level.
How we define ourselves are not up to others, but up to ourselves’ very own definition of Glory. Your joy is not equivalent to others. Some is happy when they are able to get enough food, but some is unhappy no matter how much flowers they get during Valentine’s Day.
In the end, all that matters are your interpretation to your own worldview. I would suggest you pick a dream, and work on it until you are successful. If you can achieve it easily, that means your dream is too small. Make your dream so big, that you will grow to fill it with your own potential.
Make that moment one to be remembered. Just like how you want to graduate no matter what it takes for a better future, always remember the lessons learned throughout your journey in life. God bless. Congratulations to Andrea and all of the others UMS Graduates! It is indeed a glory to those who loves you, especially your parents, father and mother, as well as your loved one.
