Hello! This is jjme and I am delighted to be a contributor to this site. Here’s a little bit about my background:

I was a student of SK/SMK Damansara Utama, Petaling Jaya. In January 2003, I was enrolled in Columbia International College (CIC) in Hamilton, ON, Canada. There, I took a 7-month intensive Grade 12/Pre-U course and graduated with an Ontario Secondary School Diploma (OSSD). The OSSD is a CPU/A-levels/STPM equivalent program allowing entry or credit transfer into any university (even in the AUS/NZ/UK/US). That same year, I got accepted into the engineering program at the University of Alberta, Edmonton, AB, Canada. I graduated with a Bsc. in Chemical Engineering in April 2007. Then, I worked as a process engineer for four years at NOVA Chemicals, Joffre site, Red Deer, AB, Canada. Currently, I'm a resident of Houston, Texas, USA, and happily married to a petroleum engineer ;)

Briefly, I enjoy sharing my experience as a foreign resident in the world of the West; anything from student and working life, to culture change or engineering field insights. As I am no longer a student, I probably won't have many blog entries here. You are most welcome to visit my personal blog at www.jjme.wordpress.com. All the best in your search for the most rewarding education/career path!
