Yasmîn would like to share the following with you:
“You never finish achieving your dreams, as long as you live you carry on dreaming of better things for yourself, your family, your country. In order to do that you need to have a vision, to plan for the future, to know what you’ve achieved and constantly improve it. Believing in yourself and knowing that you can be fulfilled through work. Giving yourself the means to make your dreams come true by training (studying for as long as possible), by sharing with others, listening and respecting the laws of nature. Having extreme motivation that borders on passion, absolute determination and self-control. Being realistic by accepting that you will build in stages, questioning yourself often, confronting adversity, accepting a fall but knowing how to get up. Not being afraid of being innovative, of thinking outside the box and drawing inspiration from someone who has succeeded!”
