Always be learning

You always develop yourself and learn from mistakes. You would leave Kwara a better person than when you came in. You are curious about new ideas and practices. You try to understand the why. You have a generally curious outlook on life. You search for answers outside the box. You are willing to try new things.

“Beating the competition is relatively easy. Beating yourself is a never-ending commitment.” - Nike
