Myself... in General

Hmm.... should I?

Should I write about myself? -_-"".......... (loading) ... Yes... I should

Wahyu Prabowo, born on 16th of February 1991 as the third of four children (we're all boys) of Suwoto and Siti Aswati. Having his childhood in Depati Amir airport complex (kind a housing for airport staff and officers), he grew in such a small and tranquil (except the disturbing sounds of plane taking off) village. And yes, I am proud of it. 

He had his kindergarten for only one years and entered elementary school one year earlier than it's used to be (thus explain why I am younger than my classmate). As a child, he was so quiet (Am I still so quiet now?)
and cried easily even for little matters and for a long time (I recalled I ever cried for hours just because of my mother went somewhere, this really troubled my aunt). He was so thin (cries squeeze your body, I thought, especially when you don't have appetite after that) and with big head (a reason why I'm smart, haha.. kidding) so much so his cousin called him 'alien'. This saddened his mother, she then prayed for him to be taller to balance his head (that worked actually, I'm 173 cm in height now, that is tall enough for Asians).

Then he had his junior high school in SMP 1 Pangkalpinang, an old school with good reputation in his city. Known to be quiet and pious (not really in fact), he followed Rohis (Rohani Islam, an Islamic extracurricular program) and succeeded to be its leader (eventhough not really a good and active leader). He is liked by his teacher for his discipline and smartness (they still don't know how lazy I am). He graduated from SMP N 1 in 2005.

In his senior high school, his star shone brightly. His fond on biology (Biology, I missed you so much) led him to many national contests, supported by his biology teachers ( Mr. Sunaryo and Mrs. Widyastuti, thank you so much) he reached 59th position in National Biology Olympiad in Surabaya, 2007. (and be a good contestant in Pesta Sains IPB, Biology competition in FKUI, and National Debate competition in Binus, since he got nothing but a 'to-not-let-you-down' participation certificate T_T). But he's passive in any school organizations, and liked to be in that state (hehe..).

He then graduated in 2008 and continued to pra-university course in Palembang to pass SNMPTN test. SNMPTN is a qualification test for students to be enrolled in state universities. They will compete with other to gain access to their selected course in state universities. As for Wahyu, he chose the difficult-to-get course, a medicine faculty. Nevertheless he spend four months in Palembang and all of his achievements in Biology, he failed....

In state of confusion, he sought alternatives in private universities but they came with throttling price for decent public servants as his parents. Suddenly, scholarship offer came for him, told by his senior high school teacher. Would he barter his dream to be a doctor for a scholarship?.... (to be continued)

(Continued.... haha.. kidding)
He finally chose the scholarship that sent him to Malaysia and moved his interest to International Studies (a next-diplomat :) Now, he's still doing his course and sometimes grumbles on how confusing social science is and how he missed biology. After all, he thanked God to sent him here, believed that there should be a reason for that. He's sure that is a good one.
