Rosi, as she is known, is a woman who is tough and resilient. Accepted as a Bidikmisi student in 2016, this woman wearing hijab was discouraged to continue studying. The reason is, the eldest of two siblings has been abandoned by the figure of his father since class XI. However, the daughter of the couple Mr. Alm. Hari Susanto and Ibu Welas Asih always remember the message from their father's mediang to continue their education to higher education. "My first thought was that after graduating from vocational school, I immediately wanted to work. But, Dad always wanted me to continue studying, ”said the alumni of SMK Negeri 1 Surabaya.
In addition, a number of people in his family environment even humiliated and ridiculed him. Rosi is considered unfit for education on campus.

The struggle he went through was not easy. Starting from failing to enter the state campus, Rosi struggled to get a Bidikmisi scholarship. While studying at Diploma 3 Accounting Study Program at STIE Perbanas Surabaya, he was active and often participated in competitions. One of his achievements is Second Place in the Internal Competition of Accounting (COMPAC) in 2017 and 2018. In addition, he also often provides additional lessons at night to increase his pocket money. "At night I give tutoring lessons for extra pocket money. Because college is free, so I look for additional, "said Rosi.
Retno Mutia Rani's only sister always remembers her late father's message to pursue higher knowledge. Even though his parents only graduated from high school, Rosi was asked to go to college. "This is how I elevate the status of my parents and family. Even though the father was quiet, he left education and morals for his son, ”recalls Rosi.
In the last two years, Rosi is also happy that someone is willing to become a guardian or stepfather in his family, namely H. Sudarno, ST. His happiness also increased when he had worked for two months as an Accounting Staff at the STIE Perbanas Surabaya Employee Cooperative, even though he had not yet graduated.
