When I was in primary school, I had so many interests that I really didn’t know what to do with myself. Initially, I thought I might want to be a doctor, but this seemed more challenging than being an engineer, so I applied to technical science stream in secondary school. I was only sixteen at the time.

My problem was that I was interested in too much. I was curious about medicine, engineering and programming, psychology and sociology. I was hungry to learn and I have remained hungry. I think too many people lose or give up that too soon in life.

Education isn’t really about degrees.
