SUCCESS STORY: THE PURSUIT OF DREAMS
“..Since I was a little girl, I always wanted to become a teacher someday and teach people to read and write… as I experienced the first time when I learnt to read and write, and then I was able to explore the world in a way I never had before. I wish everyone could read and write so they would not be easily deceived.”
Today, Ni Ketut Nuari Shanti who once was one of our KEMBALI scholars for 3 years has further stepped her way to her goal by attending university. She received a scholarship to study further at Singaraja Education University majoring in Economic Teaching.
As the youngest child of four children, coming from a poor family and being economically disadvantaged did not extinguish her dream to pursue education. She fell in love with education and she is truly aware that education is the way to change her and her family’s life. She always bears education in her mind no matter what.
With support from ALF through the KEMBALI Scholarship Program, she finished Senior High School with excellent grades. Nuari is aware that the path she has taken would not have been easy if she had not received education assistance from YKIP and she realized that her journey to pursue her dream should not just stop after she finished her senior high school. Determined, she applied for several scholarships. All of her hard work paid off when she was announced as one of the DIKTI – Bidik Misi Scholarship beneficiaries for Singaraja Education University.
Congratulation, Nuari!! We are proud to bring you closer to your dream and we believe you are going to be a great teacher one day.
