In the great word of Elie Wiesel, “If the only prayer you say throughout your life is “Thank You,” then that will be enough.”
Because THANK YOU matters, I just want to write this blog post expressing my gratitude to the universe. Thank you to God for his continuous wonders and blessings upon my life. Thank you to my family for their love and support in everything I do. Thank you to my mentors for their words of wisdom, motivation, for believing in me and, at times, for financial support. Thank you to my friends near and far across the oceans and seas for inspiration, motivation and partnership.
Furthermore, thank you to colleagues from different companies for their support, team work and, at times, inspiring me to deliver the best service possible and do my job to the best of my abilities. Thank you to the education institutes for a safe, friendly and health environment to study and make histories. Thank you to the teachers for their advises and caring about my process and supporting where possible. Thank you to fellow students for their support, motivation and team work when it came to get the job done. Thank you to the non-profit organizations for allowing me to give back and help others to the best of my ability and also grow along the way.
