UNS – Being a Most Outstanding Student (Mawapres) might be a dream of many students. Some make it real, some just make it as a dream. Ruby Agil Hasan, student of Agribusiness Vocational Department main interest in Agro-pharmacy Faculty of Agriculture (FP) Universitas Sebelas Maret (UNS) Surakarta, is one of those who make their dreams come true.
It has been a long time since Ruby Agil Hasan, who is often called Agil, wanted to be an outstanding student. However, he still lacked confidence and planned to apply for Mawapres next year when he entered the 5th semester.
Days before the close date of the registration, Agil asked by the Head of Agro-pharmacy in Agribusiness Department to represent the department in the event. Then, he got the confidence to enroll as a Mawapres at the Faculty.
With a short preparation, he wrote the paper and the product and passed various stages of selection. After passing the selection in the department, he went to the selection in the faculty and then represented FP to the selection in university with one friend from the vocational program and two friends from the bachelor program.
“At first, I was not confident preparing the research and the product in a short time, but I tried to do it my best. Even a day before the selection in university, Imam who also a Vocational Mawapres FP, and I made posters in a hectic day of meetings and printed it at the night until we searched every printing shop that still opened because a lot of them has already closed,” he explained.
In the selection, Agil arranged a complete paper of a product called Oliswel. Oliswel is made of Euphorbia Hirta extracts added with ginger and honey. The product is functioned as an alternative medicine to cure dengue fever patients. The product is transformed into a candy which aimed that can be accepted by everyone, as well as children who usually do not like the bitter of the medicine.
Agil further explained, Oliswel is given to the dengue fever patients for 3-4 days or until the patient starts to feel better, but after that, patients are still required to take Oliswel for increasing the thrombocytes level. In addition, Oliswel also contains an anti-dengue substance which not only increases the thrombocytes level but also fights the dengue virus.
“Honestly, the name ‘Oliswel’ was given as a hope that whoever consumes this product will be blessed and everything will be fine a.k.a. ‘All is well’. Adapted to the habits of Javanese people who always like the simplest, then this product is called Oliswel which has Javanese accent,” said Agil. HUMAS UNS/Isna/Try
