UCSI University 26th Convocation

WE HAVE GRADUATED!: UCSI University graduates throwing their mortar boards in the air after the university’s 26th Convocation Ceremony.

An Indoensian student studying at UCSI University was honoured at the university’s 26th convocation ceremony for putting a career in showbiz on hold in the name of education.

Having made his name as a teenage poster boy, Raden Muhammad Fajjar ,20, had numerous opportunities to model in Indonesia and he was selected as a brand ambassador for a major car company.

However, Muhammad Fajjar turned down the offers to focus on his studies.

“I was 18 then and taking up those offers would delay my studies considerably,” said Muhammad Fajjar who graduated with a Bachelor of Arts (Hons) in Mass Communication.

“I have no regrets whatsoever and studying at UCSI University was one of the best decisions I made in life. From thought-provoking classes to the rich cultural diversity on campus, my experiences at UCSI University will provide many fond memories.

encouraged his peers to pursue their passions and make a difference in the lives of others.

“Focus on the big picture as you will not find passion in things or money,” he said in his speech. “I believe that no matter what you do, that passion will be grounded in people.”

An active debater and public speaker, Muhammad Fajjar pursued his affinities during his studies and he was selected as the Tourism Ambassador for Batam City and the province of Riau in 2012.

He also worked for an Indonesian broadcasting company where he

excelled in news reporting and emceeing events.

The graduation ceremony also stood out as the first convocation UCSI University vice-chancellor Prof Dato’ Dr Khalid Yusoff presided over. A renowned cardiologist in Malaysia, Prof Khalid was recently appointed as UCSI University’s third vice-chancellor.

“Be profoundly aware of ways you can contribute in your workplace, your family and your community,” he said in his address to the graduating class of 2013.

“Recalibrate your perspective and take pride when you are given the responsibility to take on new challenges. Go beyond, be profound and make a difference.”
