Carmen Neoh, 2002, 5A2 大家好,我是Carmen Neoh,大多数的朋友都叫我 “Ah Liang” =) 我来自5A2,中学的时候,我根本不能专注我的学业,尤其是会计…这一科简直让我疯了!!!结果我真的在SPM的时候放弃了这一科,因为一心想把其他科目努力地管理好。 毕业后,我完全没有头绪,也豪无去向,不懂要选择什么科程,读什么学院等等.. 然后,我毅然决定投入社会,当一名上班族。 我相信在你们当中,不多不少也会有我这个想法:成绩不理想,深造学费又不便宜…. 身为一个‘过来人’,我充分的了解你的感受。 其实,当你面对同样的处境时,你是否该开始问问自己: 你…到底需要些什么? 你…到底想要些什么? 毕竟,这是你自己的人生,你自己的诀择,你自己的未来 它并不该由你的父母,兄弟姐妹又或者朋友去替你拿主意… 每天都是一种新的练习… 离校后,我开始在一间五金店上班,老板是一名日本漆(Nippon Paint) 的Perak代理人。我在店里当一名书记,每一天都奋斗、勤力地工作。几个月后,老板提升我的职位,成为一名销售代表(Sales Representative),而这份工作,转眼间一做就做了五年。 在我的岗位里,我不停地努力,尽我所能去做每一件事。 我深深地感受到学校生活和工作生涯,真的很不一样。 在校时,某某老师或其他人会否定你、看不起你,只因为你不是出众的学生,你没有读书的天资。 但…当你踏入社会工作,只要你肯用认真和积极的态度去表达你对工作的热诚,大家都会尊重你,珍惜你。 我觉得每一个人都有他的天赋、潜能。 天生我才必有用,无论你身处在什么样的环境,尽量做到最好就对了。 生命真的充满挑战性、转折点 五年过后(2009年),我的老板去世了。他的太太选择结束生意然后退休,至于我也需要找一份新工作了… 就在这个时候,我接到 Nippon Paint Perak 经理打来的电话,邀请我去他的公司做一位Sales Representative,因为我对这一行熟悉又有经验。两年后,我被升职成为 Sales Supervisor. 这条路我用了很长的时间, 一点一滴地累积出来… 但这个旅程也给了我宝贵的经验 我亲爱的圣母师妹, 我需要靠自己去寻找自己想要的东西,从低做起。 然后慢慢地,我才得到他人对我的崇敬和仰慕。 现在的我,已经可以自给自足,养活自己。

梁静华(Yumi Bebe), Arts Class 2000 毕业后的人生旅程 各位AMC的姐妹们,大家好! 我是梁静华(Yumi Bebe),于2000年毕业,主修文科(Arts)。 毕业后,我在怡保Informatics 修读电脑,晚上在Jusco当售货员(sales girl),也曾在England Optical 工作过几个月。这样半工半读了一年左右,我都一直在想,自己究竟要继续升学,还是一直工作算了。最后,我决定以我的爱好——音乐为未来的走向。 我从六岁开始学钢琴,一直没有放弃,直到中学毕业,还是继续练习。我发觉自己是对娱乐行业比较有兴趣,而于2001年,在思特雅大学学院(University College Sedaya International, UCSI)修读音乐文凭课程(Diploma in Music),毕业后就留在吉隆坡找工作。 侥倖的是,我顺利受聘在一所幼稚园担任音乐老师,下午教钢琴,偶尔晚上会接兼职,写歌、编曲或录音室灌唱demo歌曲,在一年内升为班主任,参与课程编写等。这样的生活维持了约九年,我因为家人的关系而回到怡保。 当时,我花了近一年的时间,探察怡保人对娱乐、表演活动的观感与接受程度,同时也筹备设立娱乐公司,寻找驻唱歌手、乐手、舞蹈员等等。 我的第一家公司名为优美音乐坊( You and Me Lusinghiero Studio),主要负责筹划和管理表演活动。万事起头难,尤其是这行业,尤其是在怡保,真的很辛苦,生意不多,难以维持。但,我还是一直坚持撑下去,凭借的是一股信念:希望总有一天能够让全怡保的人知道我,知道我们的公司、我们的表演、我们的一切。目前,不少pub或café的驻唱歌手都来自我们公司。公司可以说经营得还不错,才在今年年头再设附属线,名为 You and Me Performance Group。艰辛的日子,总算过去了。 姐妹们,一定要相信自己!路要靠自己走出来,眼前的黑暗绝非永久,每个人都拥有不平凡的力量,要坚持自己的希望,一定可以成功。如果不放弃你自己,光亮美丽的彩虹很快就会出现在您面前,人生将是多姿多彩。 AMC的姐妹们,一起来分享毕业后的生活甘苦,一起加油吧!等着你们的分享!   Contact Yumi at http://www.facebook.com/yumibebe
