Jakarta – Aktris dan penyanyi Maudy Ayunda saat ini sedang dilanda kebingungan terkait pilihan studi lanjutnya setelah lulus S1 dari Oxford University.
Kebingungan Maudy disebabkan ada dua perguruan tinggi ternama tingkat dunia yang positif menerimanya untuk melanjutkan studinya, yakni Harvard University, dan Stanford University.
Dilema ini ia ungkapkan melalui akun Instagramnya, @maudyayunda, Senin (4/3/2019).
Pada unggahan pertama, Maudy mengirimkan foto dirinya sedang berpose di bawah patung John Harvard, dan mengungkapkan bagaimana dirinya kagum melihat bangunan dari Harvard University.
“few days ago, I received my acceptance to Harvard University for a Masters in Education.
I was so happy a short caption would not do it justice. It felt surreal, and I was brought back to a moment two years ago, when I walked the rain-splattered steps towards John Harvard’s statue. Tourists and visitors had to line up to capture their moment alongside the statue, and while waiting for my turn – I looked around at the surrounding establishment, enraptured by the intimidating aura that was Harvard. Even in the humidity and rain, I was drawn to its red bricks and the promise of learning it had to offer.
I am now engulfed in a multitude of emotions. Excitement, certainly. Gratitude, definitely. But most importantly, I am reminded once again that dreams, when broken down into concrete goals, become achievable plans. And that hard work and commitment to a vision, will reap results,” tulis @maudyayunda.
Sedangkan pada postingan berikutnya, Maudy Ayunda mengunggah foto dirinya sedang mengenakan kaus berwarna merah bertuliskan ‘Stanford University’.
“But the story doesn’t end there. Currently I face a beautiful dilemma, because I also heard back from another big dream of mine: acceptance to Stanford‘s MBA program. (Yay is an understatement!) You gotta understand – I HONESTLY didn’t think I would get in. The acceptance rate was crazy low, and at every step of the application I had to remind myself not to get my hopes up. It was a near impossibility to get in.
So imagine the ecstatic shock of receiving that call from Palo Alto. The conversation itself was a blur as I mouthed “oh my god” to my parents.
Lesson learned: Dreams are funny things. The most unlikely ones can catch you off guard.
Anyways… thought I‘d share this story with all of you – you’ve been such an integral part of my journey and I would like to express my gratitude for your role in getting me here. Thank you for following and listening to the stories I tell.
I have yet to decide. I already am leaning towards one of these opportunities, but I’ll share my decision when the time comes. x Mod,” tulisnya.
Sebelumnya, Maudy Ayunda berhasil menyelesaikan studi S1-nya di Oxford University, Inggris, dengan mengambil program studi P.P.E (Politics, Philosophy, and Economics).
