The Meaning of Success
Mrs. Sotie Heidt, wife of U.S. Ambassador to Cambodia William Heidt, made a special visit to Paññāsāstra University of Cambodia ( PUC ) south campus to speak with students about “The Meaning of Success”. HE Dr. Sam Ang Sam – Chancellor for PUC Phnom Penh campuses – gave the opening remarks.
During her presentation, Mrs. Heidt encouraged the students to always remind themselves that they are setting an example for others, and to thrive on becoming model citizens for the next generation. “Success is self-defined. I define success both in terms of my professional life and my personal life and whether I feel like I am where I want to be. Success is about happiness and having peace in your heart, and not about chasing after money. When I speak to student groups, I encourage them to dream big and be the best that they can be in their field. I was quite impressed by the questions from the Paññāsāstra students. I felt I was looking at #Cambodia‘s future intellectuals who will play a part in Cambodia’s future development.”
