What’s the first thing that comes to your mind when you hear the word education? Do you think about books, teachers, exams or being inside a classroom with other students? These things are all related to education, however, it actually goes a lot deeper than we realise.
“Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.”Â
Â “â Nelson Mandela
Aside from basic needs such as food, clothing, and shelter, education has also become a necessity in life. From the moment you reach a certain age, it’s important for you to start your journey to getting an education.
You might recall when you were younger, adults around you would say “Education is a treasure that can never be taken away from anyone.”Â This statement is crystal clear, it means we have to prioritise and give value to education. Consider it as more than just reading books, memorising words, and having good grades – it’s also gathering practical knowledge and wisdom that you can certainly benefit from in your daily life.
“Education makes you less dependent upon others and opens doors to better jobs and career possibilities.“Â
“â¢ Solomon Ortiz
