This together with a sense of fairness, a thirst for useful and reliable information and learning from experience and mistakes will help anyone develop into a responsible and informed member of society The young today have far more choices and opportunities than any previous generation and with the rise of the internet it can be easier for them to realise their aspirations and become successful in whatever field they choose. Being highly specialised in one particular field can often leave young people at a disadvantage so it is advisable to have a sound 'cross the board' knowledge in a wide range of subjects as well as the main subject that they hope to pursue as a career. It is wise to remember that learning does not always equate with understanding so in order to have an in depth insight into a subject it is is necessary to apply.the things learned in theory to a practical setting.
