What you want to see in the next 10 years depends on how you take care of yourself today, Advisor for Industries and Commerce, Hekani Jakhalu Kense stated on Sunday.

Speaking as the special guest of the valedictory programme of the 30th Biennial Conference of the Angami Students' Union (ASU) in Touphema on April 30, she cited her firsthand experience and reminded students that the key to success lies in following three fundamental rules of life - hard work, consistency, and faith in God.

While acknowledging that everyone wants to be successful, Kense emphasised that hard work is the only option for achieving success. "Life is not easy, and the real world awaits you," she said, urging young people to start working hard now. 

She also stressed that there are no excuses for those who want to succeed and advised students to use their mobile phones to build themselves up instead of wasting time unnecessarily.

The Advisor observed that many Naga youths lack consistency, reminding the students that success comes only to those who are consistent in doing what they love despite the challenges and hurdles they may face along the way.

 "For people who work hard, the opportunity is limitless. Choose what you love to do and don't be pressured by societal expectations," she advised. She further urged the students to have God as the foundation in whatever one aspire to do.

Meanwhile, the Eastern Nagaland Students' Federation (ENSF) president, Chingmak Chang in his solidarity message said Kohima, being the brain and heart of Nagaland, Angamis, naturally is the heart and brain of the Nagas. 

Stating that about15000 Eastern Nagas are living in Kohima including 6000 students, he  lauded the Angamis, whom he described as their guardian for so many years 'officially or unofficially.' He appealed the Angami to keep alive the accommodating spirit and compassion for all its brethrens. Further noting that the world is moving towards a time of soft powers, Chang also suggested exchanging ideas through cultural programmes, storytelling and sharing of one's history, as well as sharing of educational practices to benefit the students' community.

Meanwhile, the ASU has elected its new team for the tenure 2023- 25 led by Khriesamhalie David Mere as president and Vimeyiekho Vitso as the general secretary.
