Head Girl's Message

It was halftime during one of my basketball matches. And we were behind by a considerable margin. With my knees pushing hard against the court, our team was quietly huddled, drenched in sweat and defeat. We had started feeling that the game was over. That’s when our coach burst through the circle and shattered our pity party and harnessed the power of words to rejuvenate a physically and emotionally drained team. And we came back clawing to win the game.


That day I realized, that it is our mental makeup, that helps us to turn every failure into success, for which we require a little push to see our goal clearly.


Whatever we want in our lives, if we want it to be great-we must be obsessed with self education, self growth. Obsessed with improving every single day. Obsessed with becoming the greatest version of yourself. It is a healthy obsession. One that pushes you beyond what others thought was possible for your life. Turn your envy now and then into your obsession. Turn your ‘shoulds’ into ‘musts’.


So to the young minds of Mater Dei - I want to say that go above and beyond, do not believe in limitations, do not see any chains. See a goal, develop a plan, dive in, do the work and get the rewards. Get obsessed about everything you want in your life. If you don’t, you will spend the rest of your life making excuses about why you did not get the life you wanted.


One of obsession and the other one of regret. There my friends, lie two paths, which one will you choose to walk?
