Dreams Come True!

Can you imagine how strong is my Desire to go USA? After my first application, second applicationS, THIRRRD applicationS, FOURTHHHhhhHhhhh applicationSss and I finally got the Full Scholarship to USA!

Maybe you will ask me: " Mei2, why are you so interested to go USA? You can go whenever you want after you graduated from law school"

There are too many reasons I hope to go USA. I want to experience the campus life especially UNDERGRADUATE life in USA! I want to think out of the box in different atmosphere. I want to go USA without spending my parents money. I want to explore USA about the secrets of all the successful businesses! I want to think creatively. I want to share with them about my lovely Malaysia and my dreams. I want to share with my friends about my feeling after going to USA. I want to take beautiful pictures to post in my blog. The most importantly is the program offered by US Department of State is my INTEREST subject! 
*tsk tsk, I can also buy cheap iPhone 5 and new iPad in USA for my dad and bro yeah*
*tsk tsk, maybe my Mum will buy a Leica to "borrow" me*

I did not expect much when I applied for this scholarship. Applicants from the whole Malaysia are competing to be one of the 18 candidates from all around the world. Yes I am luckier than winning a lottery. I simply wrote an essay and application to US Embassy via e-mail last November 2010. When I read again my application a moment ago, I found out my personal statement had many grammatical mistakes. I even realized I wrote some funny content about my desire to go USA eg Googlemei -.-"  Then I did not received have Any reply until the end of February 2011. The embassy of US said my application will be sent to Washington DC for the final selection. I dare not to tell my parents because I am afraid it will be a false hope again. Today, I got a surprising e-mail that I have been selected to represent Malaysia to the honorable Study in the US Institute program for student leaders! :")

This program is mainly discuss about the new media and politics. This institute examines major topics in journalism including the concepts of a free press, First Amendment Rights, Law, Freedom of Speech, the media's relationship to the public interest and media business models. This program underscore the impact of new technologies on journalism, and gives participants new skills such as editing photographs and video online, using social networking sites like Blogger, Facebook, Twitter and publishing personal blogs. Ever since I started my blog around October 2010, I fall in love in online publishing. I believed the new media will be a very powerful tool in the near future!

However, I am not sure whether to accept the offer or reject it =/ It is because this program will be tentatively held around June to end of July 2011. If I am going to USA, I have to skip my classes for 5 weeks (1/3 of my entire course). For your information, my third year in law will be very challenging (Company Law, Land Law, International Law, IT Law, Equity & Trust). 

The only way to overcome my challenges is working hard before the new semester started. Moreover, chanting is my great power to overcome all my challenges and obstacles. The most importantly, I need helps from my coursemates. Last year, when I skipped four weeks classes to Cambridge UK, I think I made my friends unhappy :"( I really hope my friends will keep me update everyday, record the lectures and tutorials for me. I am so sorry to trouble you! But will you help me if you are my coursemate? 

Anyway, I am so happy that my dreams come true :') I hope everything can run smoothly so I can go to USA successfully. (See: Decision)

If you can DREAM it, you can DO it!
