Finally, Congratulations Okti Nadia Poetri.

One of the reason I didn’t congratulate Okti on the day Saskia graduated was because she didn’t make it on that day. It was half an hour before her Msc presentation she was told about that bad news. She was shocked and could not believe she didn’t pass laboratory animal subject. She took it about 2 weeks ago so re-exam means she will not get her diploma that day. But she did her presentation because she didn’t want to disappoint all her friends.

Although it was tough to tell her friends (including me), she managed to stay calm. But after a while tears started to shed from her eyes. I was too feeling in despair watching her finding the courage to tell her friends about the bad news. Despite all of that her friends stayed and celebrated that day, saying that she will manage. They constantly reminded her that the exam was just formality and she is actually ‘graduating’ but not with her diploma, yet.

Today, as I successfully change my character data to numeric data using SAS with the help of my loyal husband, I screamed a big YES! at facebook. Then, Okti replied and said

ALHAMDULILLAH. I am feeling so happy. Syukur Ya Allah for that good news.

That’s Okti on that day after her Msc presentation


Msc Veterinary Epidemiology and Economics.


For all the strength that she showed for as long as I can remember, she finally nail it.  The fact that I am so delighted is now she can finally return to her daughter, Alifa very soon. Once again, Hartelijk gefeliciteerd Okti!

p/s: Hence this marks 1 year for us! How time flies… 😉
