It was exactly one year ago when I first approached SAU, an awesome team in TARUC who was enthusiastic in giving their professional advice, information and counselling on higher education opportunities with overseas university. At that time, I was a final year advanced diploma student who will officially enter the society very soon. I was just like anyone else who come to a junction, where we started to consider and worry about our future. Whether I should go straight, turn left or right? This was the biggest problem I encountered that moment and every path I took will have a great impact to my future.
Something which happened and gone beyond my expectation was I come across a vivacious team in TARUC who had guided me throughout my decision-making process. It would not be exaggerated if I were to say that SAU is just like a torch who had guided me in my journey. The counselling topic which was supposed to be CFA (Chartered Financial Analyst) had diverted into MBA(Master of Business Administration). As an engineering student who was not keen in my study, I shared my thoughts and ideas with open-minded. The best outcome after the counselling session was not only solution, but I also got to share my problems which had been kept deep in my heart since long time ago. Believe it or not, I started to have a clearer picture of my next move. I knew I should turn right instead of going straight. But still, I hesitated as things come too sudden. I knew I need to have a more comprehensive consideration of my move as I understood that I had to take full responsibility on every decision I made. I was so grateful to have SAU especially Ms Lim who had never been grumbling whenever I seek for her consultation. She assisted me in analyzing my situation and gave me her invaluable opinion based on her past experience and professional point of view. And that was also the moment when a counsellor was no longer only a counsellor to me. Perhaps, we are buddies. I am so thankful to have her guidance and advice. From the bottom of my heart, I would also express my deepest gratitude to Ms Angeline and Ms Christine who has been helpful throughout my application process. Without their assistance, everything would not go smoothly. Thus, it is undeniable that SAU is such an efficient team which I appreciate so much.
Guest what? In the blink of eye I am now on the right path when I am writing this statement. I have chosen to take the road less taken. I told myself that I will never regret and never look back. I will only keep fighting until I achieved glory. Not only because I wish to strive for satisfaction in life, but it is also challenge for me which I think every youngster should take. I am uncertain how far the path can bring me, or even can it lead to the success which I am looking for? But one thing I believe in is that if I do not try, I will regret for the rest of my life. Whether or not I will regret of the decision I made previously, I am very sure that I will only regret if I do not take the very first step of approaching SAU, the most Sincere, Amazing and Ultimate team in TARUC
