"The most memorable moment was during the Ajinomoto Scholarship selection process, when I was declared to have passed as the top 3 candidates and took part in the 2nd stage interview. At that time I knew enough about the potential of the other candidates that I was very grateful to pass the final stage. I had to fly to Jakarta from Makasar to undergo interviews with four BOD people from Ajinomoto who were Japanese and one lecturer who really understood my academic field. "I also had the opportunity to meet and get to know the other candidates and Ajinomoto Indonesia." said Gian excitedly.
"For friends who will take part in the Ajinomoto Scholarship selection next year, the first tip I can give is know yourself! Friends must be able to recognize themselves, the reasons for taking this scholarship, the reasons why they want to continue studying in Japan. Find out the main reasons for the questions above from yourself, not answers from other people. "Second, prepare the required documents properly and from now on do a search about the host professor, laboratory, department and university you want to go to," she continued.
According to Gian, getting an education in Japan was her dream, and she is grateful to PT AJINOMOTO INDONESIA for providing the opportunity and realizing her dream in terms of women's nutrition. She hopes that Ajinomoto can continue to support the hopes of Indonesian students to be able to study in Japan, and to continue to be a bridge for friendship, as well as the exchange of knowledge and technological developments between Japan and Indonesia.
