Belford made these comments last week Tuesday as part of events marking the International Women’s Day held at his school in the capital city Banjul. The theme of the school’s commemoration of the Day was: “Leading women: the skills required to reach the pinnacle of their profession”.
“If you don’t make effort, you will never succeed in life. It is never easy, but with determination and perseverance, the sky is the limit,” he told his students.
He added: “A career is a profession that a person undertakes for a substantial period of life. Several renowned anthropologies believed that this change is the most important social economic change that the planet earth has ever experienced.”
The event exposed the students to the accomplishments of ‘extraordinary’ women in their local communities. It also brought together ex-students of the school, who have excelled in their various professions.]]>
