Allow me to start this off by sharing a quote from Steve Jobs, “You can't connect the dots looking forward, you can only connect them looking backwards."

I live in Sabah, so enrolling in UNIMAS in 2023 is actually the first time I've ever set foot in Kuching, and Sarawak itself. I have never been there even though I've heard nothing but such amazing things, but my family and I just couldn’t find the right opportunity to go right until the moment when we all found out I was offered a place in PPPU. I was so over the moon that day due to the fact that I'll be pursuing my studies in a place I have yet to go. However, it was also that same reason that terrified me a bit soon after, to be frank, because I didn't know anything or anyone there!

Yet, fast-forward to five months later now, I realized I didn't need to be terrified at all. I honestly couldn't be happier studying here at PPPU, having made so many wonderful and supportive friends (special shoutout to Hayat 3 for being the best class ever), attended lectures from some of the best lecturers I've ever had the privilege of knowing, exploring places that I wouldn't think I've ever been a year ago and of course, due to the abundance of unforgettable memories I've made being here for the past five months. Normally, I wouldn’t really give much thought about my decisions and just go with the flow, but regarding the choice to study at PPPU, I think I’m more than certain that I have definitely made the right one.
