From school events like Sports Day and Market Day, to my participation in the Girl’s Soccer Team as well as Student Council, I am grateful that Tunas Muda has provided platforms that allowed me to explore my interests and talents. I especially found the school’s commitment to community service very rewarding for my character development, understanding the notion that self-improvement goes hand-in-hand with empathy for others.
My 2 years in the Diploma Programme, in particular, left the greatest impression for me. Though the programme was not a walk in the park; looking back, I am grateful for the school’s support that constantly made me feel appreciated and well-guided, allowing me to navigate through the programme with more ease.
I can now say that all my hard work has borne some fruits as the Diploma Programme allowed me to transfer the credits that I have obtained from my IB subjects, saving me 1 year off from my undergraduate degree. Most importantly, I learned the importance of generosity and humility, and the necessity of tenacity in true leadership. Finally, I just want to thank Tunas Muda for nurturing me for more than a decade; which makes the school more than just an academic institution, but also a home and all the staff/faculty members my family who have shaped me to become the well-rounded person I am today.
