My obsessed with that and that give me

My father always used to say to me: “if you
want people to respect you, first you must respect yourself”. Im too obsessed
with that and that give me courageto myself to further study after SPM (Sijil
Pelajaran Malaysia). I further my study in Diploma in engineering (Mechatronic)
as a symbol of respecting myself and the goals I have set for myself. I have
made sacrifices in my life that are not many people will do same things
especially teenager at my age. Sometimes in life it just takes the influence
of one person to help you see yourself. For me that person is my lecturer
Mr.Razak. I have been meeting with him twice a month for the past two years and
the difference these meetings have made in my mind in life, my goals for the
future, and most importantly my self-confidence.

I also found that I had a gifted skill for the
engineering learning and, perhaps due to my father’s influence, dreamed of one
day becoming an engineer and a lecturer. I began my training in
German-Malaysian Institute (GMI) at the age of 18 and finished it after 3
years. My first experienced studying in GMI was excellent, and because I was so
young and inexperienced I assumed that all aspects of physical science would make
me courage to my goal. I missed being able to learn about such a wide variety
of skills in engineering in GMI, and learn very important skill which is soft
skill that is how to deal with people. Plus, I as group leader have to
understand what team need and what to be planned so that your work can be done

My grades have always been high, but now that I
know my true goal of future, and have the luxury of time to pursue it, I have
maintained good grade point while taking other opportunity such as learn how to
be a good teenager. I set a goal and manage successfully finish one by one
semester at my local college and what is suprising me is Im not only completed
the semester, but earned a place on the Dean’s List as well. I have every
reason to expect that my academic performance will be higher than before if I open
my eye and further study at other country. A wise man said, if u want to change
something then you have to change yourself first. I felt a tremendous amount of
pride in this accomplishment, and it certainly not easy, but it helped to give
me the confidence I that need to set longer term goals.

In the end, although the
days were long and hard, my work filled me with pride. That pride has confirmed
and reinvigorated my love for engineering. I felt more alive, more engaged and
I am committed to returning to GMI as a lecturer one day. I have always dreamed
of science (be a doctor) but since my experiment and experienced, I have
dreamed only of the future which is to be an engineer and a lecturer. To me,
after all, to follow your passion is, literally, a dream come true.
