In his speech Mohamoud AbdulRauf encouraged students that they were in the right place at Amoud University and that they should continue to pursue education so as to find enlightenment as "There is nothing more liberating than Education".
On his part Sh. Horseed told the students that each and everyone has their endeavours but the one question each must ask himself or herself is "What will be your legacy?" or "What will you be remembered for?". He urged them to emulate their senior citizens like Prof. Suleiman who had done such great and wonderful acts moving Amoud University from a virtually unknown entity to an internationally well-known and respected university that it is today together with Mohamed Egal, chairman, Amoud Foundation, who has also nurtured the foundation from almost nothing to the popular organization it is today. In his speech he challenged all students who were in attendance to challenge their abilities, define their life mission and vision and evaluate what they would want to leave behind as an enduring legacy.
The students were all ears and very excited at the honor that one of the former great NBA players had bestowed on them to pay them a courtesy call and share with them a word about life.
