March 5, 2010 marked the celebration of International Day at Harford Day School, in Bel Air, Maryland. I was thrilled to have been invited to speak to a group of 6, 7 and 8 grade students.
The event was well organized and I presented in three separate sessions. Aside from my presentations, I also learned a lot about the students — their passion, and career goals.
Understandably, some are yet to decide what they want to do in the future, but those who already have made up their minds are not settling for less.
Very goal-oriented, one of the students told me he would like to become a neurosurgeon, and another, a director in the filming industry.
With such big career goals, I am sure they inspired their colleagues. They all seem very determined to continue to work very hard in school so that they can fulfill their dreams.
Perhaps, one of the other most interesting sessions was lunch. We all could not wait to try out the various international dishes that were specially prepared to mark the celebration.
It is always fun working with youths, and while I enjoyed each moment I spent with students at Harford Day School, I also enjoyed the delicious meal
