"I am excited to be active as a student because I have a strong desire to continue to spread benefits to others. The knowledge I learn on campus is a gift from Allah SWT that I must share with anyone in need," said Taufik Hidayat, one of UNY's undergraduate graduates who successfully graduated with a GPA of 3.96.
Taufik Hidayat successfully graduated from the Educational Technology Study Program, Faculty of Education and Psychology UNY in 3 years and ten months. During his studies at UNY, Taufik was active in various organizations such as the General Secretary of UKMF Reality Research 2020-2021, Minister of Education, Achievement, and Cultural Arts of BEM KM UNY 2021, and Minister of Research and Data of BEM KM UNY 2022. "Participating in organizations makes me continue to develop and provides hands-on experience in the field so that it has a massive impact on the development of hard and soft skills," he said.
Taufik initiated the Pengajar Jelajah Maya program to teach soft skills to teenagers throughout Indonesia. He utilized Zoom Meeting as the program implementation platform. At the end of the program, Taufik organized a book-sharing activity at SPS Mutiara Harapan. He also participated in the Holistic Program for Village Development and Empowerment (PHP2D) in 2021. In 2022, Taufik established the Srimardikan girls' school in Srimartani Village, Piyungan, Bantul, Yogyakarta.
"I learned time management between lectures, organizations, competitions, and community service using a priority scale and a daily to-do list I write before sleep. The to-do list helps me to carry out activities in a structured manner so that I become a better person from day to day," said Taufik. (Author: Dedy, Editor: Sudaryono, Tj.Lak)
