It's all paid off

By Friday, January 15, 2021 ,

Words can't describe how grateful and happy I am. After the struggles and the efforts, It's all paid off. I never thought that one day I would become what I am now.

So, how was I ended as a Cambridge English for primary students?

After I went back from Japan, I don't want Hannah's confidence in English fade away. Hence, I enrolled her to the Cambridge English Class. I fell in love with the content inside the book. They've got many exciting topics and activities.

I also think to pack my free time with something good and benefit activities. Throughout time, I actually have tried other skills such as - sewing and baking. None of these two can keep me consistent and focus.

No push factor, I guess.

One day, I met Doc Khor, she's the Cambridge English Programme owner at my children's school. I approached and told her that I wanted to become a teacher and part of the team.

She welcomed me, and in fact, she offered something more significant than my original intention.

She asked me whether I'm interested in running my own class. It means I will become a chief and a teacher at the same time.

After a discussion with my husband, Alfan Academy's owner and did my solat istikhrah, I braved myself to take the opportunity.

Later on, I got an email from her about CELT-P course. I've googled and asked the person-in-charge. I was excited and doubtful at first.

I was uncertain with my ability.

My brain starts bombarded with many questions. Can I make it? Is this worth it? If I completed this course, then what's next?

Of course, there were ups and downs during the journey, and Alhamdulillah, with ALLAH's favour. I finally did it.

I don't think that I can make it without support from the people around me.

The course ended a few weeks before our country had the first lockdown in 2020 due to the pandemic of Covid-19.

I truly grateful because I don't have to repeat my final  Teaching Practice. It's because some of my coursemates had to redo. It wasn't an easy thing because due to the pandemic, there were so many uncertainties that we have to deal with.

Pandemic seems troublesome to everyone around the globe. The process to get the certs were also affected. Hence, we had to wait for almost a year.

Studying at this age is more challenging. You have to simultaneously wear various hats - a wife, a mom, a student, and a teacher.

Alhamdulillah, I finally made it.

Special thanks to the people around me - My husband, the closest person in my life since 2014. Thank you for taking care of our children when I need to attend my face to face session. May ALLAH S.W.T rewards you abundantly.

Not to forget is the place that I've taught my students. It's  Alfan Academy. Thank you for the opportunity that you have given to me. Without your centre, I don't think that I can complete the course.

To my beloved parents, thank you for your du'a and advice. Emak and Ayah, both of you are exceptional in my heart. I pray, may ALLAH S.W.T have compassion and grant both of you the highest level of Jannah.

Also not to forget are my coursemates - Hawa, Mages, Mei, Chong, Catherine and Kiera. You guys did a great job! Thank you for the cheers and support. I hope our friendship will last forever.

With my instructor from Cambridge , Ms Harveena. Thanks a lot for the guidance.

On the examination's day

I also inspired with the dedication shown by my coursemates. Despite their age, they did it very well.


And it told me something.






Don't stop seeking knowledge. In fact, in Islam, it's obligatory for us as Muslims to seek knowledge. 

There are many evidence and virtues of seeking, acquiring and spreading the knowledge of the deen, that can be found in the hadith of Allah's last messenger Mohammad (ﷺ). 

Here are some of them:

Narrated Abu Hurairah:

that the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said: "Whoever takes a path upon which to obtain knowledge, Allah makes the path to Paradise easy for him."

— Jami` at-Tirmidhi 2646

Narrated Anas bin Malik:

that the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said: "Who goes goes seeking knowledge, then he is in Allah's cause until he returns."

— Jami` at-Tirmidhi 2647

This is not solely about the certificate. It's a victory for me. For a hard work and dedication. Time, money and energy that I have invested.

It's totally paid off!
