“No pain, no gain”, these words portray the recipient of Lifelong Learning Professional Award, Lim Poh Ann, 53.
Although he is bound by his current role as an Executive Engineer, it does not stop him from graduating from the Executive Bachelor in Business Management (Majoring in Industrial Operations) at Universiti Malaysia Pahang (UMP).
He was born in Muar, Johor, and he shared that the secret of success lies on perseverance and determination.
“The lesson for failure is fatigue and easily concede, but those who dare to fight and sacrifice will surely succeed.
“There are many definitions of success, but only one explanation about failure, when one fails to achieve his or her goals and does not care about it.
“I believe that when we do something, do not look back and focus on the finish line,” he said.
He admitted that studying at UMP is the most memorable experience in his life.
“UMP has all the facilities suited to the needs of the industry,” he added.
He plans to continue his study in Master Executive in the pursuit of becoming a lecturer as he intends to train more graduates in facing the Fourth Industry Revolution (IR 4.0).
