Hard work, discipline, and prayer are the three keys to success, according to Rev. Father Ntirenganya, who recommended students to follow them as their compass.
“Everybody must put forth a lot of effort. God gives you wisdom, but in order to achieve, you must put in the effort. Another essential component of success is discipline; without discipline, nothing in life is possible. Rev. Father Ntirenganya stated.
Additionally, he underlined the importance of prayer and urged the students to pray about whatever they undertake.
