The Value of Resilience and the Belief in Dreams


Freshman Charmaine Poh was inspired by a talk freelance Middle East correspondent Alice Fordham gave to the EXPOSURE group last week where she discussed the need for resilience in the field of journalism.

I sometimes wonder if it’s so silly to believe in all that Disney-esque stuff about ‘chasing your dreams’ and how ‘everything is possible’ (coincidentally, that phrase also happens to be on my wallpaper). Because these things happen. Miracles, success, happiness. Dreams do come true. … I should clarify that these things don’t land on your lap. They come after a long period of waiting, frustration, tears, hoping. They come after a lot of hard work. But they come.
