Limited economic condition did not diminish Febriyanti Siahaan’s dream of studying at university. But her parents had to tell her to postpone her dreams and advised her to find a job instead after she passed high school. Who knows that Febri’s dream finally came true when she learned that she had been accepted at Faculty of Pharmacy UGM without even paying for tuition.
“I’ve always wanted to study at a higher education level, but my parents always said no, telling me that university was just for the haves. So, when I learned that I’d been admitted and didn’t even have to pay for tuitions, instantly I hugged my parents. I told them I could study at university for free,” said Febri when met at her home in Batu Aji, Batam City, on Monday (5/6).
