“Being a student in ANU was the best thing that happened in my life. This is because it shaped my life in a way that I am able to impart knowledge to others. I carry a lot of lessons from ANU. It is at ANU that I learnt that famous saying that ‘hard work pays’. I have developed spiritually, physically and mentally. I encourage us all to embrace good deeds and help our society become a better place than we found it”. – Dominic Ndung’u, Class of 2012
