“Where there is a will there is a way, When there is a goodwill there is a goodway”
According to the history, on 1950 Universiteit van Indonesia known as Universitas Indonesia has many Agricultural sector faculty like Agriculture faculty, Forestry, Veterinary, Fisheries, and Animal science faculty. Due to the decision of Ministry of National Education on September 1st 1963, These faculty separate from UI. The Directorate has made a new institute that known as Institut Pertanian Bogor. That’s why, UI and IPB like a brother and sister #just opoinion heheee…
Yayasan Goodwill International (YGI). Anybody know? Not all of the student know about that. Of course, even me! Firstly, I know that when I was in 4th semester. My Agricultural economic lecturer (read: Ekoper) ever told us about her achievement when she was in Undergraduated program. She got scholarship from Goodwill and her sponsor from American Chamber of Commerce in Indonesia (AmCham) *if I’am not mistaken hehee. You inspired me! Thank you miss!
Finally!! I got it!! Hip hipp horray! Thanks God. Took a long time process to be Goodwillers. Oh God.. I passed many process from the election of data, interview by Chairman of Goodwill, and the last Get together I. According to me, Interview was the most unforgettable phase. Due to, the first and the last we met Japanese person, Mizue Hara (chairperson of goodwill). This obituary make us sad. But don’t worry Ibu Hara, your spirit is in us!! We will continue your mission to bring Indonesian leaders in the future. #
sok banged dah gw! dateng aja masih sering telat heheee
Every goodwillers got a sponsor. Most of the sponsor come from International association, International firm, or privat family. I got sponsorship from “The Marshaban Family” Now, they are living in Hobart, Australia. One of the marshaban family is Ibu. Julie marshaban. She is like our mother in Goodwill due to her dedication to replacing ibu Mizue hara as a chairperson of Goodwill International. Ibu mien, mbak rossa, mas Broto, mas niko, alumni, and other pembina always give their support for us.
Yeah, I’ve followed this training. This training held in the Wisma Kinasih, Caringin, Bogor. Its like a resort. The committee already booked a room especially only for Goodwillers from IPB and UI. This special training held for two days April, 16-17 2011. I was happy because this training make us know more about the other Goodwillers personality not only from IPB’s student but also UI’s student. I met many great friends. I know that they were so powerful, energetic, and smart students, of course me too. Hehee *menyenangkan diri sendiri. There was many Public speaking competition held in Kinasih. Debate, Impromptu speech, Thanks of appreciation for Goodwill, and Persuasive speech. I’ve followed Impromptu speech and Persuasive speech. Although I couldn’t be a winner. Ive already try to be brave and to be confident in front of peoples.
“Tanabata” was the session in goodwill training that goodwillers have to write their wishes in bamboo’s tree. I still remember that one of my wishes that say “Get husband from Goodwill alumni” ahaahaaa.. cool !! #Just kidding. heheeee.. Hope I’ll get scholarship extension and could finish my bachelor soon as possible.
