One of the most difficult things to do in life is start. Studying has always been a daunting task to me, over the course of my academic career I was not able to optimize the conditions under which I focus best, I didn’t feel like I had enough courage, free time, education, or capacity to fit in among the geniuses. Dona debunked the myth that brilliancy and intelligence runs in the bloodstream of people, knowing that we already have everything to succeed, and all that it takes is the willingness to work hard and take consistent daily effort. She always said “you can start where you are today and achieve greatness”
Wishing you all the best in empowering the youth to enhance their thoughts!
