Amirah’s Good Advice

Meet Amirah from Indonesia.

TELL US ABOUT YOURSELF IN 1 LINE.

I just obtained my doctoral’s degree in Pharmacy from the University of Groningen in February of this year.

TELL US SOMETHING MOST PEOPLE MIGHT NOT KNOW ABOUT YOU.

I am a modest and sociable person.

WHAT’S THE BEST PIECE OF ADVICE YOU’VE EVER RECEIVED?

I received the best piece of advice from my PhD supervisor. She told me not to take things personally, and to be confident and trust myself in every situation.

TELL US ABOUT A TIME WHEN THIS PIECE OF ADVICE CAME IN USEFUL.

I received this advice when I had a disproportionate amount of bad luck during my PhD research. I faced a lot of technical problems with the instruments that I was using. My supervisor told me that if I didn’t take things personally or blame myself for the situation, I would be able to think clearly and find the solution to the problem that I have.
