“I am grateful that I was able to take part in the Ajinomoto Scholarship selection last year, the selection was quite tight. However, I did prepare for it, namely by designing a more detailed research and study plan. The most memorable experience for me during the selection process was during the final interview with BOD Ajinomoto and external experts. I am very happy to be able to discuss and get input from experts. In addition, the entire selection process during the pandemic was also held online so that the selection participants did not have to worry about exposure to COVID-19. This method also facilitates the mobilization of participants so that they can reach a wider range of Ajinomoto Scholarship enthusiasts,” said Almi.

“This experience taught me to always have a strong desire and mentality to achieve my goals, accompanied by an attitude of surrendering to the will of Allah SWT. This experience also motivates me to continue to give the best for all those who have always supported me,” she continues.

According to Almi, it is her dream to get an education in Japan, and she is grateful to PT AJINOMOTO INDONESIA for providing the opportunity to make it happen. She hopes that Ajinomoto can continue to support the hopes of Indonesian students to be able to study in Japan, and can continue to be a bridge for friendship, as well as the exchange of knowledge and technological developments between Japan and Indonesia.
