A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.”

–  Sun Tzu

Student life is a meaningful period for each individual. Then comes graduation day which marks the end of student life and the beginning of real-world challenges. In this stage, it increases the feeling of purposefulness, independence, in charge of one’s future, and improves the feeling that he/she can figure things out and use his/her strength as an individual when things get tough. It feels like he/she is walking into a new life where the possibilities are endless and full of opportunities.
