Yogyakarta (4/11) – Being a student is the best opportunity we have. Imagine there are people out there who can’t go to college due to several factors, for that we shouldn’t waste this best opportunity, right? It’s not just a student’s job to just study by sitting and listening to the lecturer’s explanation, making assignments that are ordered, and even saying “ah as long as just go to college.”
Here as a student, you must maximize the existing potential, and opportunities to develop talent. Why is being a student the best opportunity?
Because being a student will provide more opportunities for you to progress and develop such as relationships and experiences. In order not to waste this opportunity, you can start being active in organizing, being active in class, following lecturers during research, and participating in competitions.
Not just a waste of time, competitions will give you enthusiasm that is very useful for you in your college days until when you start working.
One of the students of the International Program of Government Affairs and Administration, Universitas Muhammadiyah Yogyakarta (IGOV UMY) took the privilege of being a student to progress and develop. The student is Gumesa Rahma Jati IGOV Batch 2021 who just won 2nd place in the 12th Airlangga Championship Tapak Suci National Open 2022 in the Women’s Class B Competition/50-55 kg category. The championship was held on October 31–November 4, 2022, at Graha PPAL – Jl. Abdul Latif No. 1 Comp. Kenjeran, Surabaya.
Even though he ended up in 2nd place, Gumesa is still grateful and considers that he needs to develop his abilities again and sharpen his skills so that in the next match he will get more satisfying results. “Yes, even though it hurts but I am still grateful and take the positive side that, indeed this is the path that God has given me so that I am not arrogant and arrogant so that I continue to practice to produce better results in the next competition,” said Gumesa.
