The event was held hybrid in the Hall of Building A FKIP UNS and the Zoom Meeting application.

Of the 9 finalists, Iksan Riva Nanda from Mechanical Engineering Education was chosen as the First Best and Kusnul Khotimah as the Second Best. Both of them will represent UNS FKIP in the 2022 UNS Outstanding Student Selection event.

Met by a team of journalists from after the event, Iksan and Kusnul expressed their impressions after being declared the Mawapres of FKIP UNS 2022. Iksan was happy and would carry out this mandate to the best of his ability.

“Of course, I feel happy because I managed to get this achievement from 9 finalists with qualified abilities. Being elected as Mawapres FKIP was a turning point for me as a student. Where I managed to fight laziness in the early days of being a student to get out of my comfort zone and try to develop existing potential. I will carry out this mandate to the best of my ability,” said Iksan.

In line with Iksan, Kusnul also felt happy and surprised by the results. He said that he would use the criticism and suggestions from the jury as a provision for his evaluation.

“I am surprised by this result and I am also happy. I will make this mandate a part of the process of developing my potential. I will evaluate the criticisms and suggestions from the jury in the future,” said Kusnul.

Furthermore, Iksan also explained the meaning of achievement for a student. He also invited students in general and FKIP UNS students, in particular, to develop their existing potential by participating in positive activities and implementing the Tri Dharma of Higher Education.

“Achievement is not only related to academics, daring to go out of your comfort zone to benefit yourself and others is also an achievement. Our time as students is limited, if we don’t create space, behavior, and positive habits that lead to the future, it’s in vain. Realized or not, let’s keep trying so that when we graduate we have experience, characteristics, and expertise,” said Iksan.

At the end of the interview session, Kusnul stated their readiness to become representatives of FKIP UNS in the 2022 UNS Outstanding Student Selection event. They are ready and will prepare themselves to bring the best results.

“We are ready to represent FKIP UNS in the 2022 UNS Outstanding Student Selection event. However, we still have to improve on existing deficiencies and prepare ourselves because we will compete with other faculties at UNS with extraordinary student abilities. We will learn from the experience of the previous Mawapres and we will proceed with the Mawapres FKIP UNS team to bring the best results,” concluded Kusnul.
