STUDENTS of Jai Narayan College were urged to do well in their studies and aim high in their education.

The students were recent visitors to Parliament the previous week and got to enjoy a chat with the Speaker of Parliament, Dr Jiko Luveni. Dr Luveni told the students that their studies were important as it would determine their careers.

“Don’t restrict yourselves. Be adventurous. Keep an open mind and make it your businesses to study hard,” she said.

“Always have the initiative to learn new things every day and don’t dwell too much on watching movies.

“Instead, spend time watching local and international news and current affairs and other important things. This will help you understand better the issues happening around us.”

Dr Luveni also re-emphasised the need for female students to prove themselves in their everyday lives.

“Girls, you can be as good as your male colleagues. Don’t let gender-inequality limit your potential,” she said.

“Be knowledgeable and have a healthy competition against your male colleagues, especially in your academic results.”
