When the score sheet was handed out to the students, he “failed.” He took it home and was asked by his mum: “Son, you failed, why?
He replied: “Teachers have challenges with creative reasoning.”
Anyways, fifteen years later, It was his mum who told the telephone operator: “Please connect me to my son, Professor Albert Einstein!”.
She was a happy and proud mum to a successful professional, and internationally recognized professor. That’s my generation and our aspirations.
How do we connect with the new generation that doesn’t even know who Albert Einstein or Sigmund Freud are? All they know are apps like TikTok, Instagram, Facebook and snapchat and they look up to them for inspiration and guidance.
This generation is important and need us too. We must strive to find the connection.
