TUN RAHAH SCHOLAR 2017 – EDMUND TINGKUI Bachelor of Business Management (Entrepreneurship) at UNIRAZAK

         I am Edmund Tingkui, was born in 1995 and would be 22 for this year. I want to share a bit of my story on how I got the scholarship from Yayasan Cemerlang to continue my study at University Tun Abdul Razak (Unirazak) as an undergraduate student. Soon as I have completed my Diploma study, I was chosen to be in the list of students who are receiving scholarships, so therefore I should take this opportunity to further my studies, which is in Unirazak. Things are not quite that smooth when I had to arrange my studies in Unirazak from my hometown, which I have faced with a lot of communication barrier as the internet and phone reception in my hometown are not quite good. Though there are problems, all matter is successfully settled thankfully.

I have decided to take part in the Bachelor of Business Management (Hons) Entrepreneurship in Unirazak, as I would like to learn and explore on how to be a successful businessman, because one day when I finish my studies at Unirazak I would like to be a successful businessman not only at the level of country to country business, but also global level as well.

The process of arriving at Unirazak brings a lot of joy and tears to me as I would leave my hometown and to be in entirely new surroundings, but I have received many encouragements and are able to build up my confidence to take a new challenge ahead. Journey involved are such; air transportation-which takes approximately two hours and twenty minutes, land transport- my hometown to Kota Kinabalu Capital City Airport which consume roughly 2 hours and a half.

 Landing at Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA 2) has really taught me on how to survive my years ahead in Kuala Lumpur, as I have no idea on how to reach Unirazak as well as KL bus and taxi’s charges and fees. But at the end of the day, I am thankful that everything went well and are grateful to be able to arrive safe and sound at my new campus.
