Finally!Got offered by STAR Education Fund (scholarship) and I accepted the offer. I never had a dream come true as it is. Without God, I got nothing; by the grace of God, I'm blessed. And I would like to take this opportunity thank to all who have supported me in prayer and in morale. You know who you are. =) Let me tell you a story regarding to my interview...
Went to college with all my unsorted original certificates. Rushed to faculty office and grab a certificates file holder and chuck in my certs accordingly. After that, went to toilet and tie my necktie and went back to office to sit for awhile to calm myself down.
Walked to the waiting room which located opposite of my office. Open the door, I saw two unknown students that I never seen them before in this college. They looked at me and I looked at them. Good Morning! Don't worry, I'm not one of the panels, said me. Took my sit and start my conversation with the two interviewee until they are called. Well waited for half an hour, and they are few more students coming in. So late! Then 1st student was called and went in to the interview room.
The interview lasted 30 minutes. Pecah record! said one of the guy. After few minutes, I was called. Went in and greeted the panels. First question, can you tell us about yourself. Started my answers and then 2nd and 3rd and 4th questions posted. After all, one of them commented, you have a strong recommendation letter from you Dean of faculty and I also can see that your results from SPM and Diploma; your results had a tremendous change ahh..good good.. The rest also said hmm good..good.. Alright thank you Ivan. Stood up and went to the panels and shook their hand and say thanks.
Went back to the waiting room and opened the door.. One of the guys that came early was shocked! WHAT?! 10 mins? LOL...All da best everyone said me!
