It is the time of the year again. Convocation day. It is a day for celebration. It is a day of hope. Convocation day should not only be about a piece of paper called the degree. Convocation day should be a day that signifies a changed mindset. It should be a day that empowers the graduates to take on the world in their stride. They are now on the way to be the best khalifah in the world, yet. It should be a day that comes with a realization in the graduates' minds that finally they are able to give a bigger and better contribution to society. Convocation day marks the beginning of a new phase of life. With a degree under their belts they are now in a better position to contribute to the advancement of technology and help in the advancement of the nation; they will also be more equipped to lend a helping hand to those in need. Graduates should be courageous enough to speak their minds and brave enough to stand for what is right. After all they are the future leaders on the nation. The future is yours. Do not waste it.
