Director, Doctoral Program in Communication Arts and Innovation at National Institute of Development Administration (NIDA)
The United Kingdom was my dream destination from childhood. My image of England was always full of admiration. I began following English football in my early teens, just a little bit before learning the English language from the BBC. Getting a real chance to actually stay and study there was a dream come true for me.
Although the first few months overseas were tough, things gradually got better. I adapted to the British way of life. After a while, everything was fun and fabulous. My studies went smoothly as planned; living in London was also enjoyable, too. Finally, I graduated and obtained my doctoral degree in 2001. To me, the British education and experience have been highly valuable and forever meaningful.
