M’sian lass ranks first at Virginia Tech


Leader of the pack: Irdina's academic performance has earned her the prestigious Phi Kappa Phi medallion.

WHILE initially intimidated by the rigours of a foreign higher education system, and the lack of female representation in her course of study, Irdina Shahriman eventually managed to stack the odds in her favour.

The Yayasan Tenaga Nasional scholar did it so well that she consistently achieved a cumulative grade point average (CGPA) of 4.0 throughout her time as a Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering undergraduate at Virginia Tech (VT) in the United States from 2018 to 2021.
