Mike Nicholason- Me- The Marsaban Family (my sponsor)

“Thanks for supporting me”

Whats going on? Hey you!! Are you okay?? Haha.. “Ok, little bit afraid and worried” haha.. Last month I published post that showed how I am at that time and this month is not too different. It almost the same, something that I know writing a story and publish in my blog is thousand better than writing my Draft Thesis. Its not because Im lazy!! Soory Im hard worker : p but its too long time waiting. Definitely Im BORED!! Bapak.. kapan saya lulus?? 😦

Here I have some photos that I already got from Get Togather Goodwill 2011-2012. Yeah,. “PLEASE WELCOME NEW COMERS!!” lol

Opening address by Goodwill new chairman Mike Nicholson

“We will give you the best and we have to be better than before, so please give us Feedback!! It will help us to make improvement of Goodwill’s work”

Speech of Appreciation by Apsari Dianing Bawono (Graduated from IPB Faculty of Economics Dev. Of studies in 2007)

“Goodwill has become a bridge for us to achieve our dreams. Many good roads that are open since I joined, I bet!! 1 will pay it forward!!” When she was a student she was sponsored by Mr. William. Now she become one of goodwill sponsor that already sponsored a student. She truly paid it forward!

Introduction of Goodwill Alumni Association (GAA) by Niko Ningsus Songko

“There were more than 400 succes students of goodwill Alumni, overseas and inside the country. I know that it difficult to make them become one roof  but if we were not to start from now so WHEN??”

Message from Instructor Victor Chandrawira

“I wont see all of you in a classroom but I will see you all in Cheko, Geneva, German, Australia” 😉 waw!! Actually when Ibu mien call me, I was on my flight to Geneva because of my work.

Message from IPB’s Lecturer represent Dr. Rimbawan

“We know that UI’s student come from rich family it different with IPB’s student. They do not fortunate with funding, most of IPB’s students come from RURAL AREA, so please pak Mike give IPB more Scholar than UI” 😀 haaha Actually I don’t know what Goodwill before. Its my first time visit. I was so amazed all of students speak in English, waw!! I will tell to the student, it was a great program!

-That was my story, just wanna break my bored time.  Terkadang mahasiswa tingkat akhir kaya gw ini sedikit banyak perlu bercerita biar ga stress!! Tau sendiri kan,. semua itu memang berat tapi bagaimana kita menyikapinya saja. Kalo gw sih, biasa aja treat as well as nothing problem. Mungkin di luar sana banyak para “galau’ers” ditengah tugas akhir mereka. Satu kata deh dari gw!! SEMANGAT guys!! There will be a right time and that time will be yours!!-

Warmest regards,

Lutfi Afifah “Goodwillers 2010-2012”

Alles Gute zum Geburtstag Lutfi!! #HappyBirthday

Alles Gute zum Geburtstag Lutfi!! 😉

Often, someone looked me as a strong girl in the appearance. Haaha.. in fact it just the cover! Sometimes I getting down but I tried to make those as a tiny stones that could be solved only by break them with a little energy. Yahhh.. that’s me! Strong girl with the big passion in her life!

I promise and I bet.. hahaa… #WishMeLuck!! ^^v

I became "boss" at that time LOL

I was lucky got the best parents ever who always support me everytime I need. It almost a year actually I didn’t go home. It because of my research. I feel like a bird that couldn’t fly free. Doesn’t matter! Lets enjoy this part of life 🙂 That sweet photo was took in Malang, East Java July, 7th 2011. They visited me when I followed Syngenta Program with Australian student. Look at the picture! My father brought a book. Look silly on that photo. He said ”I wanna take photo with this book nduk!” showed book on camera. yahh.. ! That’s my father! He like read Islamic book exactly. I love you Dad! I love you also Mom.. eventhough little bit fussy actually. My Mom always ask me “When you will graduate??, Why you took a long time with your research, look at Endik (my neighbor anak UNS) he has completed his undergraduate!, Do you have boyfriend now? Who is he?… be careful with the man bla,… blaaa…” Thinking about that makes me feel pain!! Stop mom!! Anyway, I love you mom..

My Father and his book! LOL

I’m lucky being a student of IPB. Love Agricultural faculty so much!.. In this year 2011, I got Achievement as Outstanding student actually (read: Mahasiswa berprestasi). Hahaa.. I was proud of that eventhough I was not the best on it. Many of my friends doesn’t know about that because until now there is NO Announcement or something like publication about that. Doesn’t matter! No problem..

I’m lucky being part of Goodwill International family. Do you know guys,.. I really happy when I got a message from my scholarship sponsor from Hobart, Australia last July 29th 2011.

She said: “Lutfi, How are you? I want to let you know that the Marsaban family has agreed and is happy to support you for one more semester. PLease let us know the date of your graduation”.

I answered: “I’m fine Ms. Julie,. thank you so much. How’re you and family there? I hope you’re fine also. I was happy receiving goodwill extension for one more semester from The Marsaban family it would be help me to finish my bachelor in IPB. it was surprising! Officially announcement have not announced yet but you give me announcement early. InsyaAllah I will be graduate on December 2011. I will give you a news soon… Hope you could come to my graduation day 🙂 warmest regards, Lutfi

Love this Photo!! Pembina has represented my sponsor at Goodwill Get Togather II (they're also my parents) ^^

It mean, I got second chance to get Scholarship. So, might! For a year later I have to attend UI to follow monthly training *again. Haha. Not all of goodwillers got this chance. Only few students could get Scholarship Extension. Alhamdulillah lah pokoknya… kedepan masih ada tambahan biaya buat hidup gw.. haha.. My promise, I will make use of that scholarship wisely. I bet!!

Heiii,. someone there! I loved your smile, I love getting message from you~~ #eaaaa but today you have not gave congratulation yet.. oh how pity Im! -_- (8:13 am). I thought that last night 5th,  you text me to give something like congratulation but in fact NOT. 😦

That was my short story. Once more, Happy Birthday Lut and Happy Ramadhan for us!! Have a fantastic year!
