Bergas Batara Anargya, Class of 2021
Hi everyone, my name is Bergas Batara Anargya from the class of 2021. I’ve been in BINUS SCHOOL Simprug from EY3, so 13 years in this school, and right now, I’m doing my bachelor’s degree in Allegheny College doing a Computer Science major and Economics minor.
While doing that, I’m also in a fast track program to my master’s degree to Carnegie Mellon University where there I’m gonna study Masters Information Systems Management. The achievements that I accumulated across my 2 years in Allegheny include All-PAC Conference First Team, which is top 5 players in a conference across 10 schools in the Pennsylvania area, and I also got an All-Region award for top 10 players across the Ohio, Pennsylvania, New York, and Maryland area.
In regards to my education, I got inducted to the International Honor Society of Economics called Omicron Delta Epsilon for my scholastic achievement in Economics. My journey in BINUS SCHOOL Simprug would be very appreciated, I never thought that I have a school really support me in my unique extracurriculars, although that some people that really respected what I’m doing right now. This could be shown by one of my extracurriculars, a CSR project called Mobile Library Indonesia, where my friends and I created a program, a book drive for underprivileged kids in Bandung and Bogor.
Also, I am co-chairman for Binus Cup 2020, or Binus Cup VIII, where we host a high school varsity tournament across 20 schools in the Jakarta area. What I could say is, especially on what I can take from BINUS SCHOOL Simprug is first, commitment, commitment to your goal. I think you have to know what your goal is, you have to be clear on what you want, and regardless if it’s short-term or long-term goal, you have to know that where you’re going, so you won’t be stress about in the current time. And also, time management really important, probably more important than commitment I think, because the ability to balance school, extracurriculars, and social life is very important in order to create friends, networks, and be successful in life.
A message to all of you guys is, first, work smart not hard. I think it’s a very cliche thing to say right now, but in order to work smart, you’ll be more efficient with your time, get to learn more, and not focusing on one single topi, in which in this day of world, you won’t be successful because there is a lot of things going on right now.
