All the travelling I've done in the past month was just a follow up to one BIG occasion in my lifetime. My adventures in the Middle East was kind of a pitstop before heading to England shortly after. Why did I have to be England??
I finally graduated guys!! Uni is done and dusted—THANK GOD. I had such a lovely graduation. My parents and all my brothers were present for the ceremony and I can safely say that I had one of the best days of my life. It was a very special day for my best friends and I.
Fey (left) and Hafsa (right) were my housemates in uni and they're also my best friends. I cannot stress the amount of times they've picked me up while I was down and there have been plenty of those moments back in uni. Likewise, I was there for them, too.
Aside from learning the skills to be a journalist and how the news industry work, what has uni taught me? Well... it's actually taught me there's more to education than the grades and commentary you get on a piece of paper. For me, being away from home and in a faraway country taught an otherwise timid girl like me to actually speak up a lot more. I'm not as scared talking to unknown people anymore! In fact, I've probably gotten feisty. Oops...
Being in uni, I've gotten to know people from a multitude of backgrounds—different ethnicities, nationalities and completely different mindsets. The exposure I received taught a pretty conservative girl like me to be more accepting and open-minded. I used to be scared of losing my Malayness but living in UK made me appreciate my heritage so much more.
Heck, I even wore a traditional Malay outfit (called Baju Kurung) to my graduation. I'm Malaysian through and through and a British education does not change that.
I'm going to miss my uni friends insanely. How I wish England was next to Malaysia! So now... I suppose I'm on to the next chapter of my life. Wish me luck, peeps.
