    It’s February – where are you and what’s going on for you?

    The new year is still in its early stages, which makes me super excited about all that is to come. I have a lot of fresh ideas and plans for philanthropy, so I'm currently concentrating on all the ways I'll be contributing to creating impact in those spaces throughout 2024. My mantra this year is to strengthen my strengths.

    Student blog: Islamic Society reflections on Success

    I have pondered upon the notion of success incessantly, consciously or otherwise, from a young age. Like most of the people who will read this, academic success formed my early notion of success. I remember my father telling me from a young age that ‘nothing worth having in life came easy’ as he simultaneously congratulated my 90% mark on a year 5 test and reminded me that there was 10% still to be found somewhere. That notion of success as the degree of achievement is perhaps an intuitive thing. It’s quite a nice belief to have as well.
