Living our values

"The mantra "We Have Impact Through Insight and Tenacity" reflects not only a powerful philosophy but also serves as a profound reflection of my father's remarkable life journey. Faced with adversity from a tender age, he embodied this principle through his unwavering dedication and relentless pursuit of knowledge and success. Orphaned at a young age, my father's path was far from easy. He had to toil during the day to make ends meet, all while dedicating his nights to education. Against all odds, he became the very first individual in our village to earn a college degree. But his journey did not end within the confines of civil service. My father's tenacious spirit and insightful decision-making led him to venture into entrepreneurship, where he founded a successful business. This enduring principle, evident in both his personal and professional life, has profoundly influenced my own path. It continues to inspire me to persevere, make a meaningful impact, and embrace the route to success through a combination of insightful choices and unwavering determination."
