The Regent of West Lampung H. Parosil Mabsus feels proud and appreciates one of the students of Universitas Teknokrat Indonesia ASEAN’s Best Private University on behalf of Vina Qurrota Akyuningrum who is an alumni of SMA Negeri 1 Sukau, West Lampung.

Vina is a student from West Lampung with extraordinary achievements and received a one-semester scholarship to study at the University of Central Missouri, United States in the United States Global Undergraduate Exchange Program (Global UGRAD) 2021/2022.

The Regent of West Lampung H. Parosil Mabsus feels proud, because Vina Qurrota Akyuningrum, who is familiarly called Vina, is a native from the West Lampung region who was born in Lumbok Seminung District on July 12, 2001, who was chosen to be the only one to represent Sumatra out of 11 students from Indonesia who received the scholarship.

“It is a matter of pride for us, Vina will inspire other students to achieve more,” said Parosil.

Vina, an undergraduate student in English Education, Faculty of Arts and Education (FSIP) at Universitas Teknokrat Indonesia, has completed her final semester exam at the University of Central Missouri with a 4.00 GPA.

Vina’s achievement has actually been seen when she was only one month studying at the University of Central Missouri, United States.

Last week, Vina completed all the final semester exams at UTI online with satisfactory results with a GPA of 4.00 out of 10 courses out of 20 credits. Vina competed with native students at the University of Central Missouri and other peers from various countries.

Vina’s English skills are very proficient. He also often argues with other students and lecturers when explaining something in lectures on campus.

Before receiving the UGRAD United States Global Program Student Exchange Scholarship 2021/2022 at the University of Central Missouri, United States, Vina had already made many achievements.

These achievements include 1st place in English Speech at PHNC Sriwijaya University in 2021, 1st place in National English Speech at Bunda Mulia University English Festival 2021, Lampung Youth Jamboree Delegation 2020, Best Costume Winner for Lampung Province Language Ambassador 2020, Youth Ambassador for Lampung Province 2020, Winner of the 2019 Lampung Provincial Language Office Pantun Replied Contest and 2nd Place English Speech EPA Lampung Polynesian 2019.

In the midst of her busy university activities, Vina still finds time to share her old hobby, writing a book (fiction novel) about the United States entitled Cinta Bersemi at Namsan Tower, just wait for Vina’s novel.

It is a matter of pride for the Regent of West Lampung, because Vina was able to meet directly with the Rector of the University of Central Missouri, Mr. Roger J. Best, Ph.D. in his office where not everyone can easily meet the Rector.

The Regent of Parosil hopes that Vina Qurrota Akyuningrum’s achievements can trigger the progress of education in West Lampung Regency to be even better.

“Hopefully, West Lampung will continue to produce outstanding sons and daughters in the field of education to realize Great West Lampung, Great Lampung and Advanced Indonesia,” Parosil hoped.

Vina herself was happy to be invited virtually to the West Lampung Musrenbang event. Vina is happy to be introduced to all Musrenbang participants. Vina also wants this work to make herself better. Vina also wants all students from this area to study hard and be able to achieve even better.

Vice Rector of Universitas Teknokrat Indonesia Dr. H. Mahathir Muhammad, SE., MM. expressed his gratitude for the appreciation of the Regent of Parosil Mabsus. Mahathir is very happy that the local District Government can appreciate what Vina is doing in the United States.

Mahathir also wants children in West Lampung to follow Vina’s success. Vina is also open to her campus to students from West Lampung. Mahathir agreed with the Regent that the potential of the children there was extraordinary. It’s just a matter of how the campus can polish them and provide extra supplies to emerge as the generation of winners, the generation of champions. (teknokrat)
