Our Own Sir Peter Jackson


I recall a few years ago, after receiving an outstanding straight As for his SPM results, my brother was asked what he wanted to do with the rest of his life. Because he passed with flying colours, he was offered to do many things, by many parties, though none of them was what he really wanted to do. Medicine? Engineering? Law? The world was his oyster. Faced with the decision to either follow the crowd and do as others do, or chart his own future into the unknown, he decided on the latter, though he received countless “advice” from naysayers to persuade him otherwise. It was difficult because the offers elsewhere were tempting, what with full scholarships, studying in a foreign country and whatnot. After standing his ground and persevering through with his passion in Film Making, he has received accolades for his abilities and is already carving a name for himself. And today, he is featured in the papers for just that. Alhamdulillah, I’m so proud of him. Luqman, this one’s for you lil bro.
