During his speech, he emphasized the importance of trust, faith, promise, and dreams as the four main values to be followed. He connected these values to being happy, positive, persistent, and believing in oneself. Drawing from his own life experiences, he explained how to turn failure into success. He encouraged the students to never lose faith because it is essential to overcoming obstacles in life. He also advised them to focus on building a strong foundation, stating that if the foundation is solid, nothing can destroy it. He shared impactful quotes and conveyed that failure is a path to success and that for every problem, there is a solution.

Speaking about freedom he mentioned that freedom is close to his heart as he was a victim of human trafficking. He narrated his experience of moving out of exploitation and being a voice for many others who are experiencing similar conditions. He further stated that he is lucky to be at the School of Social Work as this institute is close to his heart and the institute always supported and encouraged his work against human trafficking.

In conclusion, Harold stated that human trafficking is a global menace that requires a collective effort to combat. It is important to educate ourselves and others about the signs of trafficking and how to report it.
