Scholarship Award

Today I attended an award ceremony for staff who were selected to receive the Company's scholarship for furthering studies. It was quite nice; I was expecting just some boring speech and briefing on the do's and dont's as a scholar. It turned out they had hi-tea and an actual award ceremony (complete with picture taking moments) with the Chief Human Capital Officer.


It made me feel special. And very lucky. Out of the hundred plus applications, only 26 were selected to receive scholarships for our degree, masters and PhD studies. And according to the CHCO, the number could have been zero, if according to the extreme cost cutting exercises going on in the Company right now.

Truth be told, I hadn't been banking on getting the scholarship. I was set to do my MBA, with or without it. My interview session with the Scholarship panel wasn't all that impressive, as all my previous interview sessions have been. I really need to learn to stop rambling on when I have nothing relevant or logic to say.

But I got selected. And after learning the facts, it has made me even more determined to work harder and study smarter.
Go, Along!!

Ummu: Yep, memang menjadi semangat. Walaupun sekarang duit insya'allah takyah keluar sendiri, tapi kudrat dan masa still kena sacrifice...banyak!! Hee..

Fatim: Thanks dear!

TOAJ: Memang kena carik semangat rajin tu. Dia takde alasan takde masa...cuma alasan malas. Kalau nak ikutkan, memang tak cukup 24 jam sehari aku nak handlekan keje, famili and study...tapi dek m inat tu berkobar2 sket...insya'allah.
