One of them is Marvijs Ajoomi, a lecturer from Papua with an interesting story that he told the President.

"I came from the age of 15 years, I cannot speak English at all, I am grateful to be given a chance, from high school, advanced S1, then S2, now teaching at one of the universities here," he said.

The President also received some suggestions from these students. One of them is that they ask that the 'employment opportunity' or employment opportunities for overseas graduates be expanded.

"Father if I may share, many of our younger brothers have finished, so maybe in the future if there is an opportunity for them to return and serve the country, maybe an 'employment opportunity' after they are done, because this investment should not be there just father, must be sustainable, "he continued with the applause of all students who participated.

On the occasion, the President listened and recorded the proposals.
