Although I was born in a big busy city, I decided long ago that I no longer wanted to live a city life. For many people, city life becomes stressful and, more often than not, you suffer bad health. My family and I have now left the city and live in a quiet place where the birds wake me up in the morning with their beautiful chirping. The sun shines everyday, the sky is a brilliant blue, the sea is warm and the food tastes lovely.


I appreciate my change of mind probably happened as I got older and some of you younger ones are thinking, I would love to live in a city. I meet many students here who say that to me. They want to see the city and the brightly-lit skylines that light up the night skies. They want to go out partying every night and enjoy the 'freedom' they don't have in their country.


All I will say is this, make the most of what you have and see where life's path takes you.
