Rahmad Saputra, S.Pd.
PBI UII 2016
“Some people spend much of their young adulthood trying to figure out what they want to do to achieve their dreams. I have known since the beginning that PBI UII was the right place to open the door for multiple valuable opportunities and learning experiences as a milestone to achieve my dreams.
Looking back on my time, I tried my best to maintain an excellent academic career. I also involved myself in student organizations and events to enrich my interpersonal skills. Later on, I had many memorable experiences during my time at PBI UII. One of the best experiences was in 2019. I was rewarded a scholarship from my department to teach and promote Indonesian culture to Australian students in Dromana Secondary College in Australia. It provided me with a wide insight into both educational systems and intercultural learning. I also successfully wrote research on English Language Teaching, and it was selected to be presented and published at an international conference in Osaka, Japan.
Throughout my bachelor’s degree, I learned a lot, not just academically, but about life and what really matters in the end from the people I met. Having surrounded by many wonderful friends and lecturers had provided me with new perspectives and valuable information that kept me critically thinking and overcoming my lack of self-confidence. I hope everyone who comes to PBI UII can find a strong community that teaches them more than just academia can.”
