“Four things are very important in everyone’s life to excel. The four things are: Energy, self- confidence, happiness and good health”, said Faizan Sheikh, youngest Indian motivational speaker at the 11th Foundation Day of KiiT International School.

Addressing the students of the school, he said, one should have sufficient energy and self-confidence to achieve the highest level of success in one’s life. “You should also keep yourself happy and physically fit to get the success in life.
