Dimapur, Sep. 26: Promoting platforms for schools and colleges to interact with one another, ICFAI University inaugurated a two-day youth festival, an academic and entertainment festival, on September 26 in Dimapur.

The programme was conducted in the university’s auditorium with the objective to motivate and inspire students through various activities.

Speaking at the inaugural programme, the additional deputy commissioner of Dimapur, Lovitoly Sema, urged the students to walk out of their comfort zones and to start working toward their dreams.

“I want you to have an educational vision so that after completing the course, you’d know exactly what to pursue next,” Sema said. She advised the students to believe in themselves and urged them to strive to overcome obstacles and difficulties in life.

“You are in the process of discovering yourselves and in this stage that you will go through a lot of difficulties. But always remember that success does not come easily. Only those who strive for it gets it,” Sema said.

Emphasising strongly on quality education, she advised the students to involve in college activities so that they would learn and experience new things.

The competitions of the first day included painting, a penalty shootout for boys, volleyball for girls, mobile games, fitness, product marketing and stand-up comedy. Eight other schools and colleges from Dimapur participated at the festival.
