It feels just like yesterday when we did the selection process for the vocational program’s intake for the academic year of 2020-2021. Time flies and last November, two of the students under YKIP Vocational Scholarship Program graduated. Suputri and Rizky finished their vocational training in the Alfa Prima.
Suputri, initially received her scholarship under KEMBALI Scholarship program when she was in grade 4, studying Business Administration and Management. She graduated with honor with a GPA of 3.88. Suputri lives in Tegallalang, Gianyar Regency, and she made it to come to Denpasar when there was an offline class to be attended. It is about a one and a half hours ride. Although it seems a long way to go, but Suputri went through this routine with a happy heart.
“I never imagine that I will be able to get the one-year training in Business Administration and Management. I didn’t believe at first that I got the scholarship and really touched. Thank you for this big opportunity. I learn a lot from my training, and I am sure that I would be able to use my skill to get a better life in the future.”
Another student, Rizky, finished his training in Graphic Design and Animation with honor with a GPA of 3.72. Rizky was previously one YKIP sponsored student under the KEMBALI Scholarship program. He was sponsored when he was in Junior High School. Rizky wear a prosthetic leg, but this condition was no hindrance for Rizky to study. He successfully finished his training and attend on-the-job training in a printing company in Denpasar.
“Thank you for giving this opportunity to me. Now after graduating from college, I now work as a freelance designer. I have some clients who hire me to design their social media accounts. This scholarship really help me to develop my skill and give me more opportunities to get a bigger network and get jobs.” Rizky explains his activities after finishing his study.
We would like to thank the donor of these two students, Inspirasia Foundation who support our Vocational Scholarship Program and make a difference in these students’ life.
