YOUTHS should prioritise education if they are to improve their lives and those of their families, Lusaka Lawyer Dickson Jere has advised.
Mr Jere, who was guest of honour at the blousing ceremony of youths at Reformed Church in Zambia, said education was the only equalizer in life that could turn poor youths into successful citizens.
“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 bloused by Reverend Penias Mbewe of Matero RCZ.
He said even changing careers in life was possible like he had done from journalism to law so long as one was 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,” Mr Jere told the jubilant youths.
And Rev Mbewe 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 said he was impressed that youths have demonstrated real zeal to achieve their goals and urged parents to enrol their children in the youth ministry. This, he said, would enable them grow with the Christian principles.
