I want to appeal to our students, to the youth.
It is no matter how good and professional teacher is , he will not be able to teach anything to a student, if the student does not aspire to knowledge, he does not want to become a professional, highly qualified specialist.
You must have a great ambitions! You must be willing to become the best in your profession and be ready for competition.
It means that you must constantly learn a new knowledge, work on yourself. Only in this way you can become a successful person.
Turning to students, I will remind you: want to be in demand tomorrow in the labor market and receive a decent salary - learn truly!
