Life as a Biostudent


I become interested in life science ever since I was a kid, though during that time I was not very clear what is the major responsibility of being a scientist. I started developed my true desire towards this course when I was in secondary school.

I still remember, when I first express my full interest in biomedical field towards my family, they rejected my idea hardly. I cannot bear to stand hearing them underestimate the dream which I carry along till I grow up. I almost give up. One thing I am clear about myself, I am stubborn. If I do like a thing and I feel that it is right, regardless to what other people might say about it I will try to get what I want.

The same thing happen in this case. I apply for life sciences course in IIUM, and Alhamdulillah made it to enter IIUM itself. 2 years of having foundation/matriculation courses in PJ was not very tough physically. However emotionally I being test by once again my family. 

They started to sell bags of negative thought upon this course by having a question like: "ada kerja ke nanti?" "kenapa ramai graduan bio menganggur?" and again my stubbornness empowering everything. Though I remain silence externally, my internally shouted strongly the words of  "who cares!".

What points make me stand still up until this moment of time are
  1. 10 years from now I believe that Malaysia will be at the greatest potential in placing bio industry as an industry that will contribute the most in its economy
  2. thus, for doing so this country need large number of scientist to conduct various research on various field
  3. to become developed in year 2020, Malaysia need to empowering science in all aspects. Because science bring us to the world beyond boundaries
  4. they are so many diseases out there that still have no cure. therefore it is our duties to explore and find the cure
  5. To achieve "wawasan 2020" I believe we need to be a producer not a consumer in science. 
You may have your own point of view regarding this issue. I think, I am glad over the year the work that I hardly work hard on become more clear to them.They started to understand and accept my views. Asking me sometimes about this course in positive and acceptable tonne of voice. Share some ideas and information with me.

Well I think they begin to understand me and Science finally. Everything being payed off Alhamdulillah. And now I am seek to look further into my future in this course. No turning back I guess and No regret for sure.

This is just a quote which I like to share with all of you:
"The rest of your life is a long time and whether, you know it or not it's being shaped right now. You can choose to blame your circumstances on fate or bad luck or bad choices, or you can fight back. Things aren't always going to be fair in the real world, that's just the way it is, but for the most part you get what you give. Let me ask you all a question. What's worse: not getting everything you wished for or getting it but finding out it's not enough? The rest of your life is being shaped right now with the dreams you chase, the choices you make and the person you decide to be. The rest of your life is a long time and the rest of your life starts right now"

Thank You
