Ridho Allah begins with the pleasure of parents. This belief was embedded by Ivana Nabilah Qoriroh Mujahidah, a student of the English Education Study Program, University of Muhammadiyah Malang (UMM) of all of her achievements so far. Including the opportunity to travel around Europe and experience six months of study in the blue continent. The story began thanks to the encouragement of his father, Dr. Zainul Mujahid, M.Hum., who suggested him to study at the White Campus of UMM because it is known as a campus that provides many opportunities to study abroad.

In 2019, for six months, this poetry lover was lucky to be able to convert several courses she took at the UMM Teacher Training and Education Faculty, at Universidad De Murcia, Spain.

"Initially, when I just graduated from the Islamic Boarding School Ar-Rohmah Putri High School, I was being accepted at a university in Malaysia. It Dad's wish. Suddenly, h-4 departure, Father did not allow. The reason at that time was because I had just left an Islamic boarding school (after 6 years of Islamic boarding school), and also I was a daughter. Father always said: many roads lead to Rome. Long story short, my father enrolled me at UMM. He wanted to major in Arabic, but my father wanted me to major in English Education," said Ivana when interviewed, Saturday (16/10).

Zainul's determination to lecture the daughter at the UMM White Campus is not without reason.

Ivana calls it 3 ideal keys that must internalize in a teacher. First, the method is more important than the material; second, the teacher is more important than the method; third, the spirit of a teacher is more important than the teacher himself. “The teacher must have an invisible touch. That is, a teacher must be sincere in teaching, "concluded Ivana.
