Once entering school, a bright period started in my life. I realized the importance of knowledge in a man’s life, and the fact that life opens many doors before those who study well.
Armenian boxer Arthur Abraham, who is the reining WBO Super Middleweight Champion, told the aforesaid to NEWS.am Sport, and in connection with Knowledge Day—which is marked on September 1—and the start of the new academic year in Armenia on the same day.
“I was enrolled in and completed Secondary School No. 99 of Nerkin Charbakh [district] of [capital city] Yerevan.
“Every year during summer holidays I had big expectations about September 1. I wanted this day to come soon, since I was missing my classmates, teachers, and also the lessons.
“Dear schoolchildren, all future successes will have a direct and an indirect link with knowledge.
“The more we work, we become that much more successful. May the need to be educated, to acquire new knowledge guide you always and everywhere,” Abraham specifically said.
