"I was the first batch of UDE student in 2014 and I was one of the first batch of UDE graduates in 2018. Before graduation, I was accepted as an Operational Staff of tracking administration in a private logistic company located in Tanjung Priok. The impression of being Ukridian is out of the world for me. I learn how to see the bigger picture of everything I face everyday. Besides, the value of integrity is also something I obtained while learning at UDE. The environment was also very friendly, communication between lecturers and students are maintained not only inside the class, but also in my daily life as a student. The most valuable experience that helped me throughout my career life is integrity. Through integrity, I learn to do things the at the very best that I'm capable of. It helps me to work profesionally and adapt faster in my workplace. Paint your purpose with passion and try out new things, life is too short to hold yourself back."
Being a second-batch student in UKRIDA Department of English (UDE) has been so unforgettable. During my 3.5 years of learning in UDE, the lecturers were absolutely cooperative and inspiring. They made me more motivated to do independent learning and gain insights by being active during classes. UDE provided me an opportunity to broaden my experiences through variative learning methods, projects, and two-month comprehensive internship in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. In addition, UDE helped me to discover my passion for life as an English translator. UDE is not just a place to learn, but also a warm home where I found a family inside. Now, I am working as a professional English translator in a reputable financial company at the Wall Street of Indonesia – Sudirman Central Business District. Enhanced hands-on skills and knowledge I received from UDE have made me who I am. Day-to-day article translations and consecutive interpreting depict a major part of my working life. UDE, with its balanced portion of theories and real practices, has empowered me to be confident during work.
