Further Study

Pemandu teksi terima sarjana

KUALA LUMPUR 19 Okt. – Iltizam untuk menjadi idola kepada lima anaknya membakar semangat seorang pemandu teksi, Ishak Ismail, 56, untuk meneruskan pelajaran sehingga ke peringkat ijazah sarjana.

Hari ini, impiannya itu menjadi kenyataan apabila beliau menerima ijazah Sarjana Komunikasi Korporat dari Universiti Putra Malaysia (UPM), Serdang pada Majlis Konvokesyen UPM Ke-32 di sini.

Semangat Ishak untuk menimba ilmu terus menyala dan selama 13 tahun memandu teksi di sekitar Shah Alam, beliau sentiasa berfikir untuk mengisi setiap masa terluang dengan perkara yang berfaedah.

‘‘Saya sedar peringkat usia saya agak tua berbanding mahasiswa lain tetapi berbekalkan kelulusan Sijil Tinggi Pelajaran Malaysia (STPM), saya nekad sambung belajar peringkat ijazah pada tahun 2002,’’ katanya ketika ditemui selepas majlis konvokesyen itu di sini hari ini.

Sebaik sahaja menamatkan pengajian ijazah dalam bidang komunikasi dua tahun lepas, datuk kepada tiga orang cucu ini meneruskan pengajian ke peringkat Sarjana Komunikasi Korporat.

Kejayaan hari ini, katanya, adalah berkat doa dan sokongan moral yang diberikan oleh isteri dan keluarga.
Justeru, jelasnya, pengorbanan keluarganya itu tidak akan dipersia-siakan kerana selepas ini, beliau tidak lagi akan menjadi pemandu teksi.

MY MASTERS?


I wonder when will be my turn. All this while, not that I never have any intention to further my studies, it's just that I still do not have what it takes to act and start. I am aware that high level of education is not a guarantee for people to be successful in life. Nor it was a sign that you are now a much wiser person. There are people who are having successful life, prosperous business and everything despite of not having the certificate. Yeah, there are those people. But not everyone is that lucky. If one have the chance to further study, why not? Not everyone gets the opportunity, kan? And if I am to have one, I will grab it.

Anyway, I am still in planning stage of furthering my studies. There are a lot of things to be considered of. Like the course, the time, the place, the type of study (I am pretty sure not to take the “by research” thingy, much likely to get one by coursework or classes though), and of course, the financial needs. (Degree punya PTPTN pun belum habis bayar ni! Ouch!)

I always thought that the time is yet to come, that I still want to gain as much experience in this industry. And it turns out that I am enjoying my career, hence it made me flown away much further from my desire to pursue for higher education.

I hope one day I will have enough drive to act. Who knows?
