In the Happiness Class, students explained that they can now take their attention away from exam related and other stress and focus better on education.
During the interactions with students and teachers, Habib shared the importance of never giving up with his own story – how he lost his eyesight to cancer at age eight but went on to study at Oxford, contesting elections in the US and becoming the Lt. Governor.
