recent update :
Beyond my dream.

Hi, it’s been quite a long time I didn’t post anything, right? So, it’s fifteen days left before my flight to the states and I feel like I wanna share something here, in my blog. I bet no one will read this but um I don’t care because I write to express myself, that’s it.

Ten years ago, when I was just a kid in primary school, I never thought I would be able to go this far. You know, going to study abroad under a full scholarship, I take that as ‘far’. Back then, I didn’t even know which one comes first, PMR or SPM, stupid young me :’)

Next, when I entered secondary school. My aim was just to get into University of Malaya and I even said to my mom once that I can’t guarantee her a straight A’s for my SPM. What more to go to study in the USA, never across in my mind at all. But, all praise to Allah, I managed to get straight A’s in my SPM and after that I did everything just like everyone else were doing. Applying for scholarships here and there, a lot, without any big hope that I could get any of them.

And of course, I applied for UPU and alhamdulillah I got my first choice in the UPU application and that was already a big happiness for me but a fun fact, UM wasn’t my first choice for UPU, it was UIA. Why? Wasn’t UM my childhood dream? So, I ended up choosing UIA simply because I want to continue my study in Arabic since I learnt Arabic when I was in highschool. Not to brag but I got an A+ for my Arabic which made me think twice either to choose UM or UIA.

So, when I got an e-mail saying that I’ve been called for an interview for JPA scholarship, I am so happy. Up to this day, I didn’t even know why I was pretty confident that I would pass the interview and yes, I did. I AM SO HAPPY. IT WAS BEYOND MY DREAM TO GET TO STUDY IN THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.

Uhm, it didn’t stop there. When I entered INTEC (a place that I’ve never heard in my entire life) to do my preparation, there was another thing coming. People (esp my mom) keep saying that there was no guarantee that I will fly to the States even though I’ve been doing my preparation in INTEC. I need to pass the requirements first. So, I studied in INTEC for two years with this in my mind. The struggles? Well, the first sem is good but the next five sems, it was hell I told you. On that moments, I learnt a lot of things, I studied more than I ever did, I realised that I am not a genius (pretty obvious LOL) and I struggled so much. I know there are some of my friends who struggled more but for a person like me, my struggles compared to when I was in high school was totally different.

Anyways, I made it guys. I passed all the requirements, alhamdulillah. I applied for three universities which are Oregon State University, Pennsylvania State University and Michigan State University and alhamdulillah again I got offered by all three but I choose the later one, MSU. Why? Well, if I want to tell the reasons, it would be another long story hahaha
So that’s it. I was a kid who didn’t even know either PMR or SPM comes first and never did I think I would be doing my degree in the USA. But now, fifteen days left for me to go to the United States of America doing my degree in Nutrition. May Allah ease everything.
I think I’m going to keep my blog updated once I’m there.

I just want to say that, we never know what the future hold. Just try your very best in everything. It might not be the best for that thing but it's your best.
