I am Herlina, one of Monash University alumni in Melbourne, Australia. I graduated in 2000 mastering in Public Policy and Management under the Faculty of Business and Economics in the Department of Management.
I am the Head of Sub Division in one of the Indonesian Government Departments now, and also as a lecturer in some colleges lecturing on various subjects.
I really enjoyed studying in Melbourne, even though it was stressful with overloaded subjects. But it was challenging. Staying in Melbourne was very unique with its unpredictable weather - it could be four seasons in one day. Therefore we could not forget to bring the umbrella everyday wherever we go.
Actually I am eager to study again in Monash Uni. for Doctorate Program, but unluckily I could not. I have applied for AusAID Scholarship twice, unfortunately both of them were unsuccessful. All the documents from Monash Uni were completed, the supervisor encouraged and supported me very much, because he was really interested in the topic of my PhD research.
Anyway I am still trying to find other scholarships for the research. I hope I could find one.
Please kindly find attached a photograph when I was in Australia. My family were accompanying me when I was there.
