#4 Ayi Sumarna Showed Us that It’s Never Too Late to Learn Something New!

How old are most of your students when learning in Bangkit? Between 20-23? Have you ever heard of a Bangkit 2023 Batch 1 Graduate who is over 2 decades older than most of them? 😱

If you haven’t, now is the time to get to know him. Meet Ayi Sumarna (43), Bangkit 2023 Batch 1 Graduate from Cloud Computing. This Library and Information Science student from Universitas Terbuka also works as Head of the Financial Department at Kantor Desa Ciburial, Kabupaten Bandung. 💰

Aspiring to learn more about cloud infrastructure to help him build a public library and information center in the village motivated him to join Bangkit. It was challenging for the father of four to bustle on campus, at the office, and in Bangkit. However, his determination assisted him to graduate from this program. 👨🏻‍🎓

You’ll never know how incredible you’ll become if you choose to stay and don’t face any difficulties you encounter,” Ayi said. 💪🏻

A thousand “thank you” can’t describe how grateful and excited we are to have you on board. Your commitment to helping these students be high-caliber talents is your ultimate goal. Therefore, we would like to encourage you to keep going no matter how difficult the challenge to train these individuals will be, just as Ayi Sumarna said:

You must understand that challenge exists to make you one step closer to your goals.”
