On June 18, 2023, MUPAT Library had the honor of welcoming a distinguished guest, the Coordinating Minister for Human Development and Cultural Affairs, Prof. Dr. Muhadjir Effendy, M.AP. This visit marked a historic moment for Muhammadiyah 4 Elementary School, Malang.
During his visit, he was warmly received by two young reporters, Anggun and Aby. One of Anggun’s questions to the Minister was about his motivation to become a minister and work towards helping children in Indonesia. In a heartwarming response, Minister Muhadjir asked Anggun and Aby about their own aspirations. Anggun aspires to become a policewoman to catch criminals, while Aby dreams of becoming a dentist to take care of his dental health. Their honest and innocent answers elicited hearty laughter and applause from the officials and stakeholders present.
Minister Muhadjir encouraged the students of Muhammadiyah 4 Elementary School to approach their studies with enthusiasm, never to give up, and to be courageous in facing challenges. He emphasized that seeking simple or easy paths would not lead them to become extraordinary individuals.
The Minister also praised the intelligence and courage of the children in interviewing a government minister. He appreciated the enthusiasm and honesty displayed by the young reporters.
Before leaving the MUPAT Library, Minister Muhadjir gladly autographed a poster held by Aby. With a heartfelt prayer, he wished for the aspirations and dreams of the students from Muhammadiyah 4 Elementary School to come true.
