She was determined to rise above her circumstances and succeed in life, despite lacking resources and opportunities.
Through word of mouth from her neighbor, Venda discovered the Rumah Belajar – an educational institution that offered the same quality of education as traditional schools. Without a moment’s hesitation, Venda eagerly enrolled and delved into her studies from grade 7 to grade 10. Her unwavering dedication to her studies and impressive academic achievements earned her a scholarship to finish her high school degree at the Global Sevilla International School.
But Venda was not content with just excelling in academics. She sought to broaden her horizons and gain valuable experience in the workforce. Venda seized an opportunity to participate in an internship program at YCAB as an Alumni Tracking and Job Placement.
Yet, Venda’s ambitions did not end there. Upon discovering the Bhakti BCA internship program, Venda knew she had to seize the opportunity. The selection process was rigorous, and arduous, and demanded nothing less than the best from Venda. But she persevered, navigating through a series of tests, interviews, and medical evaluations with ease.
Eventually, Venda emerged victorious as one of the 22 participants in the highly competitive Bhakti BCA internship program. Immersing herself in banking, Venda acquired a wealth of knowledge and insight into how BCA collaborates with social organizations to benefit society. In no time, Venda’s exceptional performance and work ethic earned her praise and recognition from her peers and superiors. She was even offered a permanent position with a salary that exceeded expectations.
