I started this blog because I had a hard time searching for the information that I need. It was about career and recruitment experience at that time. After experiencing that process myself, I decided to write my experience online and try my best to be informative and helpful in each blog post. Aside from that, I want to live by my motto “be the person that you need” and this is the least thing that I can do to help others.
Here’s me in less than 500 characters.
Indonesian born-and-raised, I lived in Indonesia for 20 years and currently living and working in Taiwan. I speak Bahasa Indonesia, English, and Chinese (and still learning). The next language that I want to learn would be Spanish and Korean. I love to write, capture moments, create beautiful things (designing, editing photos & videos), and travel (exploring nature). Technology blows my mind and I want to be part of the most important time of technology advancement in history.
This is me in a couple of points (or more) 🙂
- I would describe myself as a generalist with strong interests in product management, business analysis, and data-driven analysis related role.
- I enjoy multimedia editing such as photo and video and I had the opportunity to use these skills to doubled my role in various job and competitions that I’ve had so far.
- I love to challenge myself in solving business problems with technology.
- I was born in 1997.
- I was born in a small city in Riau Province, Indonesia, called Tembilahan City. It was a city where everybody knows everybody and people still swim and shower in the river.
I’m writing this blog to tell my progress, my journey, my stories to the internet. I’m happy and shock (to be honest) that some of my posts hit #1 in the google search result. I hope through my stories, I can inspire you to go out and write your own.
