Chula ... Day 3




Day 3
June 24, 2015

June 24, 2015 was the day. Yes, it was the day. The day that I've been waiting for - the International ASEAN Research Network Symposium. It was my very first paper presentation at an international conference. I'd like to label it international as it was held in others homeland and the panelists were international figures. The experience was surely of immeasurable value. 

Having my paper accepted for this conference was a great honour. I was both thrilled and anxious about presenting my paper in front of international audience. However, years of experience in training fellow teachers did help tremendously.

The days leading up to the conference were spent preparing and refining my PPT presentations. I owe my supervisor, Prof Bala, a great debt of gratitude for all his guidance and endless support. In actual fact, his words of encouragement spurred me on to take up this challenge.

Thank you Dr Jaitip.

Thank you Dr Ana.

I did it!

Overall, I truly enjoyed being part of the conference. Apart from getting a huge round of applause from the delegates and being lauded the most passionate and lively presentation, there are a few take home messages that I will definitely apply in my future undertakings:
  • Being too humble can limit momentum, cause you to not celebrate accomplishments, and give reasons as to why you shouldn’t take risks. 
  • An overabundance of humility can cause you to lack self confidence.
  • Nobody is perfect but everyone is perfect in their own way.
  • You can do it if you believe you can.
