Rizky Aljaza (Kiki) – Indonesia Summer Internship Alumna, Alumni Summit @ Chiang Mai Attendee, VIA Indonesia Staff

Greetings from Indonesia! Hello everyone! I’m going to briefly introduce myself; my name is Kiki. I am the financial and operational staff member for VIA Indonesia. Now, I live in Yogyakarta, a special region where most of the VIA programs in Indonesia are conducted. Besides my financial and operational responsibilities in VIA Indonesia, I also assist the VIA programs and, together with the other staff, run monthly programs for communities around us. I always enjoy my time working with VIA, especially because I get the chance to meet a lot of amazing people who keep inspiring me to keep growing. This would be my second Alumni Summit; it is both exciting and nervous to experience this as one of the planning members. As I recall my memories from the first VIA summit, my favorite part was the game for leadership training. it was a fun activity where we worked together pretty well even though some of us had just met. For me, this event is a great chance to meet people who share the same interests with us, recall our time in the VIA programs, to reflect and recharge, and of course open more doors of opportunities in the future. I look forward to meeting you guys! Let’s create more inspiring memories together!
