RENOWNED Lusaka-based lawyer Dickson Jere has urged youths to prioritise education if they are to improve their lives and those of their families.
Mr. Jere said this when he officiated as guest of honor at the blousing ceremony of youths at Reformed Church in Zambia (RCZ) in Matero where he addressed over 50 youths.
He says education is the only equalizer in life that can turn poor youths into successful citizens, urging youths against complacency by being content with what they have but that they must strive to attain the highest levels of education if they are to make it in life.
“You have to invest in education. Do not be content with what you have. Always aim at improving your education,” Mr. Jere told over 50 youths that were blouses by Rev Penias Mbewe of Matero RCZ.
He says even changing careers in life is possible like he had done from journalism to law as long as one is committed and focused to achieve the set goals of his life.
“It is possible and it will be possible. Just focus. You can move from being a nurse to top surgeon,” Jere told the youths at the ceremony.
“I want to see lawyers, doctors, accountants and economists from this group. It is all possible despite being from Matero,” he said.
And Rev Mbewe has urged the youths to be the light of the society and use their Christian principles to change their fellow youths in Matero.
“Be the light in Matero. I want to see innovators from this group,” Rev. Mbewe said in his sermon to the graduants.
He says he is also impressed that the youths have demonstrated real zeal to achieve their goals and urged parents to enroll their children in the youth ministry to enable them grow with Christian principles.
