They have to study hard to get success. It’s not easy to become a student. It’s not easy to become a successful student. It’s not easy to make your parents proud. It’s not easy to make your nation proud. But it’s not impossible. It’s possible. If you want you can do it. The most important thing is that you have to work hard for it. You have to work hard for your success.
You have to work hard to make your parents proud. You have to work hard to make your nation proud. You have to study a lot. And you have to make your country proud. You have to make your parents proud. You have to make your teachers proud. You have to make your friends proud. You have to make your relatives proud. You have to make your neighbors proud.
