The world is our classroom, and all the things that happen in our lives are our life lessons. Every life lesson, be it joyful or painful, serves to reform our thinking, review our actions, expand our awareness, accelerate our growth, and thrust us into wisdom.
FSTEP Batch 5 participants in the Hazel Class secretly organized a show to surprise me. I did not suspect anything at all until the HAZELians "evicted" me from the lecture room at noon. That was when I sensed they were up to something.
It was the Muslim fasting month so the HAZELians used the lunch break to get their act together. They busied themselves with cutting and pasting art papers and writing their messages of appreciation on images of their hands. I guess they also practised the song "You Raise Me Up" and planned their routine on the stage.
I wonder how they managed to sneak in the long stem roses!!!
When the class started in the morning, I caught the CEO (Chief Entertainment Officer) dozing off in his chair. Later, I found out that he stayed awake the whole night producing a movie for the show. Such incredible sacrifices!
I'm deeply touched by the HAZELians' moving show of appreciation. But, what I find most rewarding is the fact that they apply their soft skills expertly and produce a show with a touch of class!
Their leadership, teamwork, collaboration, creativity and generosity is awesome.
Thank you, HAZELians. May God bless you with outstanding success in the financial industry. Love you all!
