    She stressed the role of being humble as it pays to be humble, and talked against pride as it takes no one anywhere, the need to have the right attitude in terms of being teachable, willing to work for free as a way of preparing themselves for opportunities, avoiding burning bridges and that hard work indeed pays though it pains.

    Geogette also encouraged young people to be strong-willed, bouncing back from rejection, and not give up.

    She concluded with a quote by Winston Churchill that read:- “If you are going through hell, keep going” as a way of reminding them to always be persistent and determined no matter the situation, more so if they are to make it in academics but the business world as well.
