Graduation day is a milestone in everyone's life.
I still remember the day when I first met the Chancellor of UoNA. He guided me in choosing the best academic path. Since that day, I have been guided and inspired by all my professors who enriched my knowledge.
It has been overall a great experience with UoNA. My career has been well shaped by the knowledge acquired during my course of study.
To learn, teach, and learn is the right path of life. To innovate and lead is the future of life. Letís all honor our University by following these paths. There is never an end to learning. Letís continue to learn throughout our lives. As students of UoNA, let's make our University proud by bringing innovative and productive changes to the world and make it a better and more peaceful place.
I would like to specially thank my beloved husband Thiruvengadam Kasi Ashok for supporting, inspiring and guiding me during the course of study. He made my dream and my dad, Dr. V. Swaminathan's dream come true.
I want to thank my brother Kartik Jeyashankaran for his financial aid and support. I would also like to thank my parents, parents-in-laws, sisters and sister-in-laws for supporting me to achieve this great success. Above all, I thank God for making me who I am today.
I am also happy to receive this award along with my son Vishva who is just 4 months old. I would like to cherish this memory forever in my life.
Congratulations to all the students who graduated today. I wish you all success in your future. Letís use the skills we learned and the degrees we earned to promote our University wherever we go.
