[:en]Hola todos! My name is Shelya Andini Wibowo, people usually call me Shelya. I am a student of the Faculty of Law, Universitas Brawijaya in the class of 2020 as well as the IISMA (Indonesian International Student Mobility Awards) Awardee in 2022. In 2022, I had the opportunity to spend the fall in Spain, precisely in the city of Granada in the Andalusian province. I was accepted as an IISMA Awardee at the Universidad de Granada. For three months I had the opportunity to develop my insights in the emerging political and social fields of the European Union, two things that I learned as a course when I became an IISMA awardee at the Universidad de Granada. In addition, I also studied Spanish with other foreign students, which of course was an experience that made me realize that not only English is important to be an academic.

IISMA opens up opportunities I couldn’t imagine before. One example is the opportunity to connect with other Awardee friends from all over Indonesia because IISMA is a scholarship program of the Ministry of Education and Culture entitled to be followed by all Indonesian students. In addition to domestic connections, I also had the opportunity to get foreign connections and get acquainted with students from Spain, the USA, Japan, and even China. All of that I got through the IISMA program, which of course became my forum to exchange knowledge and opinions about a problem happening around us and a place to introduce Indonesian culture.

Being one of the IISMA Awardees from the Faculty of Law, Universitas Brawijaya is a matter of pride that I feel and have. I can adapt easily to the learning environment in Spain because I am used to having discussions with friends from the Faculty of Law at Universitas Brawijaya. Therefore, I feel that Law Faculty students have great potential to compete abroad. Let’s follow in the footsteps of me and other IISMA Awardees so that we can bring the fame of the Faculty of Law, Universitas Brawijaya on the international scene.
