Favourite memory of the Award:
One of my favorite memories was sitting by the Tricolor Beach, relaxing, and ordering a cup of noodles with my friends from a small eating place by the beach.
Biggest challenge from doing the Award:
One of the biggest challenges was being able to arrive to the beach. To simply go the beach, we had to take a 6 hour ride from Surabaya to Malang, and when arriving, had to ride a boat, walk on foot, and used different sorts of transportation just to reach the beach. But, overall it was definitely worth it!
Have you continued any of your Award activities? If so, what:
Yes, we have kept contact with representatives from CMC Tiga Warna and have monitored the growth of the mangrove trees and Bio Reef Techs. We also have continued to campaign and expand our community, where our campaign has reached thousands and encouraged more than 100 people to take action and even some joining our community. Our next project, Tanah AirKoe, aims to promote Indonesia’s culture and to combine it with sustainability. We plan to go to orphanages and teach them how to make batik, cook traditional food, and more!
Tell us the story behind your photo:
This is when I visited the Tricolor Beach in Malang, Indonesia to conduct my service project. In this time, me and my friends visited the CMC Tiga Warna which is a mangrove conservatory to plant 200 mangrove trees and release 4 Bio Reef Techs which is a part of our fundraising program. This picture specifically was the view that we arrived to, where the ocean had 3 shades of color and was beautiful, where the local community also welcomed us.
