Addressing as keynote speaker Ms. Bibi Russell said, money earning is not the full meaning of life. You can earn money in many ways. But, it is not easy to gain name and fame. If you can live with honor and dignity that would be more meaningful life and for that you must have to know your own creed, culture and heritage. You have to cherish your native in heart.
Ms. Bibi Russell also said that without respecting your parents you cannot show respect to any other and can’t achieve anything honorable for you. Family learning is the best learning and it plays an important role in every human life. Today’s BibiI Russel is the output of my parents contribution and family learning. My parents blessings and family learning make me as a Bibi Russell. My family introduced me with art, culture and heritage from early childhood, she added.
She urged the students to learn not to be afraid of anyone rather learn to respect men and keep courage in your heart and go ahead with your cherished dream. World renowned organizations didn’t award me not looking at my glamour rather they evaluated my works. I achieved those recognitions only through my work. She advised the students not to be frustrated rather bearing courage in mind.
