TF LEaRN Journal Report

First of all, I would like to say sorry to all of you who have been waiting for posts about my journey as an Exchange Student in NTU, Singapore. (I am not being too confident here. I know there are some who are indeed waiting for them, lol).

Since I have so much free time on my hand now, I will start to make a flashback. I decided to divide them in some parts (I am still not sure how many). As a good start, I will put my TF LEaRN journal report first here. This was a compulsory for all of TF LEaRN scholars. We were required to submit a 1500-200 words essay containing all of our journey as a TF LEaRN scholar, along with our best 10 chosen photos.

So here it is, my TF LEaRN journal. I couldn't write everything in detail since we were only allowed to write at most 2000 words (You have no idea how hard it was for me to compress all the great journey just in 2000 words. I had a hard time choosing which part I should remove before.)

And the journey begins

It's been 6 months since I last updated this blog and lots of things have happened. So here I am now, writing my first post from Singapore!

Hampir semua orang mempunyai mimpi, cita-cita, yang membuat mereka keep motivated menjalani hidup, membuat mereka berusaha mati-matian untuk menggapai mimpi tersebut. Keberhasilan meraih mimpi adalah salah satu hal yang dapat membuat kebahagiaan sesungguhnya. :)

Salah satu mimpi terbesar yang gw punya sejak dulu adalah mengikuti Exchange Program ke Universitas di luar Indonesia. Salah satu alasannya adalah, seperti yang gw tulis di motivation letter;
"I want to know another culture first-hand and at the same time introduce my own culture to people abroad. I'm always curios about every culture from all around the world. Even though we can just get almost all the informations about it from books, internet, television, and many other media, it would all be nothing compared to visiting the places where the story was written."

Dan alhamdulillah, mimpi tersebut akhirnya terwujud.
