INTRODUCTION OF MYSELF, HIGHER EDUCATION PLAN AND MY CAREER PLANNING
“The life of every man is a diary in which he means to write one story”
by Mark Twain
My name is Siti Zulaikha Noor binti Ab Rahman, I am the first daughter of Ab Rahman bin Alias and Siti Hafizah binti Manap. I was born on 24th June, 1994 at Hospital Besar Kuala Lumpur. Born as a first child really taught me how significant it is to be a knowledgeable person in order to survive in this competitive world. My father is a high school teacher while my mother works with Felda Holdings Berhad as a Senior Executive in the Information Unit. Being the eldest child, I have always been taught to be independent and to love my younger brother. My parents always taught me to be a role model, so that my younger brother soon perhaps will follow me and this is a big responsibility I will hold in my whole life.
I received my preschool education at Tadika Islam Ummi, Seremban and when I was 5 years old I already can read and write very well just like the primary school’s student. After my preschool, I started my formal primary education at SK King George V, Ampangan or very well known as SK KGV from 2001 until 2002 before moving to SK Sikamat. In 2006, I passed my UPSR examination with flying colours and score 5A’s. Later, I was offered to continue my studies at SM Sains Tuanku Ja’afar, Kuala Pilah (STJ). In 2007, I started my secondary school life as a SBP student in this prestigious school. In the year 2009, I got 8A’s in my PMR examination. After obtaining good results, I was placed in a good Science-stream class in Form 4 and Form 5. Alhamdulillah and praise to Allah, I got straight 9A’s in my SPM examination. This has proven that I am a very consistent and determined student in achieving my target in every major examination that I took.
At school, I was among hundreds from all edges in Malaysia. This need hard work and big forbearances to stay in front. However, despite all the hardships I need to face, I managed to shine as the school’s promising gem. Stepping into STJ, had truly gave me a possibility to polish my talent, my abilities and my potential to become a versatile student. In addition for the splendid academic performances, I did well in extra-curricular affairs. I participated in the state Kadet Remaja Sekolah Camp. As for sport, I also involved in tennis and cross country. Besides that, I was very well known at STJ as ‘German girl’ because in 2010, I won the German essay writing competition and got one month scholarship to further my study in Germany, sponsored by The Goethe Institute. Other than that, I participated in the Astar Scrabble Challenge International and Choral Speaking too. I brushed up my leadership skill by being one of the school prefects. I was selected to hold these positions due to my high self confidence, the ability to speak my ideas in front of the people without any fears and even my skills in persuading others. This shows that I am a student who has compatibility with many kinds of activities, yet I was able to divide and manage my time efficiently.
Why I really insist to pursue my study in medicine? I got many compelling reasons why I choose to become a doctor. Doctor belongs to one of the best profession, mainly responsible for people life. Since I was small, my father always inspired me to become a doctor when I grow up. He used to buy me toys like doctor’s equipment. Besides that, my father is diabetic and has high blood pressure. So, he needs to consume medicine regularly to maintain his health. Therefore, I need to give him the insulin injection once a day during night time. By doing this, I was aspired to become a doctor as my future career and I set this in my heart that one day, I will become Malaysia’s most well known Physician expert. I love to help needy people. So, by being a doctor, I can serve to the Malaysians and help those people in improving their health, as well as quality of their life. Borneo Post Online states that, “With the current population of 28 million and at the diabetes prevalence rate of 15 per cent, there are now about 4.2 million diabetics in Malaysia”. Soon I believe that Malaysia will need more Physician experts in the future. It is really a great satisfaction for me if I can lend a hand to help people especially the poor, the disabled people and also the elderly. Furthermore, as for me, being a doctor is not only about giving exact treatments to the patients. It comprises the duties to educate people about the importance of maintaining good health and the significance of being free from diseases. Many people out there do not realize the importance of health and balanced diet. Thus, it is a doctor’s responsibility to ensure that the society realize about the dangers and risk of diseases and illness. Therefore, I would like to respond to the need of 1:400 by 2020 as stated by the Health Informatics Centre Planning Development Division of Ministry Of Health Malaysia.
I really hope to be accepted to further my study in medicine in University New Castle, Johor Bharu (NUMed). I understand that The Newcastle University is established as one of the best universities in this globe. The proof is that the Newcastle University has been ranked 146th among top 200 best universities according to the Times Higher Education World University Ranking for the year 2011 and 2012. Now Newcastle University UK, has established an international branch campus in Johor, Malaysia to provide an undergraduate degrees in Medicine (MB BS). I also understand that NUMed Malaysia is working in partnership with the Royal College of Physicians to develop world-class clinical and educational training opportunities in South-East Asia. The programmes of study are identical to those of Newcastle’s UK-based provision, and lead to the award of the same degrees.
By choosing to study at NUMed Malaysia, the students will obtain a reputable UK qualification, from an internationally recognized university, at a cost significantly less than that of studying in the UK. The NUMed Malaysia five-year MB BS programme is identical to that of Newcastle's UK provision. It will provide a general medical education, suitable for all types of doctor and serve as the foundation for later career specialisation. The undergraduate programme is designed to develop the skills that will need to become an independent self-learner and a lifetime of medical learning. At first, the structured learning environment provides with clearly defined goals and direction, and new material is introduced and explained by teachers who are skilled at delivering and explaining information to large groups of students. While teaching in lectures and in a variety of clinical settings remains of pivotal importance, a variety of other innovative methods are used, with the choice of method being carefully chosen to match the particular educational objectives. Thus, in my opinion NUMed is a great choice for me to further my study in medicine and I wish and set a high hope that one day I will be able to enter NUMed.
Just like a typical vision student, I have even sketch my pathway 15 years ahead. In the first 6 to 7 years, hopefully starting from next year, I will undergo International Baccalaureate for two years at Kolej Mara Seremban and continuing my degree in medicine, the MBBS. As a fresh potential graduate, I will serve my nation either with the government or private sector in order to complete my fellowship and housemanship training. Then I will do my Masters in medicine, but this time I will specialized in Internal Medicine to pursue my dream of being a physician for another 2 or 3 years. Upon completion, I will become a specialist and I promised to myself that I will be loyal to my beloved homeland and to serve my fellow citizen no matter how difficult it is.
This is all about me, my education and career planning if I took medicine as my primary choice to further my study. Despite of deep interest in this field, medicine also serve a lot of golden opportunity in Malaysia, especially in the future. This job is not only about making money, but also mainly about how to improve my Bumiputra level in this modernity lives. As this field is less monopolized by the Malay bumiputras, I think I have the responsibility to help my own people. As the population grows and technologies evolve, the demand for medical experts will always be there. By then, Dr Siti Zulaikha nor binti Ab Rahman, will be there to ease the burden. I will surely do anything to achieve my goals.
