Award Level:
Favourite memory of the Award:
I was selected as one of the Indonesian representatives for the 2011 International Gold Event (IGE) in Kenya. Being able to discuss the role of youth with other participants (including H.E. Edward) as well as doing social project (renovating local schools) is my favorite memory of the Award.
Biggest challenge from doing the Award:
From my point of view, the biggest challenge in doing the Award is to be commitment in doing all activities regularly. It is normal that sometimes we got bored or could not do the activity as we had other unexpected things to do. However, being able to complete all those activities has taught me valuable lessons to be committed, discipline and help others.
Have you continued any of your Award activities? If so, what:
Yes, I still continue my physical recreation activities after completing the award. I also became a volunteer for the Award activities in Jakarta, Indonesia.
Tell us the story behind your photo:
When I was a volunteer, I actively participated in social activities conducted by the Award. One of them was IAYP Days Out. We invited disabled persons to visit Zoo in Jakarta. This activity aimed to increase their confidence that they also can do what other people do. At this event, we also awarded the first disabled person the Award.
