”Doctor Honoris Causa 🙏🏾
It is with pride and gratitude that I’ve accepted to be elevated to the rank of Doctor Honoris Causa of the RUSTA University.
What an amazing day, what a fantastic crowd of students, Professors, ambassadors,family, friends…
More than this honour, it is always overwhelming when people from different places or countries talk about what you’ve achieved as a man in your short life…
Once someone told me : Didi, you are more than an example, you’re a role model.
Being a role model doesn’t mean you’re perfect.
it means being able to embrace life with its challenges, learn from your mistakes, to forgive, to be passionate, ambitious, show the way, to improve.
Falling nine times, getting up twenty, hundred more times!!!! That’s the spirit💪🏾
To all the YOUTH:
Dare to dream, it’s priceless!!!!
To achieve your dreams you need to develop few values like Commitment, hard work, respect, resilience, passion and love for what you are doing.
As a citizen of the World, I’m proud to contribute to the development of my country, my continent and the world through my foundation @thedidierdrogbafoundation
