I have worked with farmers for 30 years as a farmer teacher. After I graduated I have still worked for the farmers. Although I’m old now I want to tell everyone that no one is too old to learn. No one is too old to adjust themselves. And no one is too old to work for the benefits of the country. Lastly, no one is too old to do good things. The prize I am awarded is not just a coincidence, but it comes from my devotion to work.”
