I commenced the Combined Masters of Arts and Social Sciences specialising in Educational Leadership and TESOL in February 2017. I am from Jayapura in West Papua, Indonesia, where I hold the position of School Principal at Sekolah Papua Harapan. I will return to Jayapura at the end of 2018 and plan to implement several key plans, a particular interest of my focus is on providing high quality education by working with the foundation where I work and the government of Papua to improve educational services there, especially the remote areas.
I am a recipient of an Australia Awards Scholarship funded by the Australian Government. As an Australia Awards awardee, besides my academic duties at university, during my time in Sydney, I have been involved in several award-enrichment activities such as participating in workshops and seminars organised by Australia Awards. In addition to that, I also like to explore other extracurricular activities such as networking, visiting colleagues’ schools, doing voluntary works and some paid part-time jobs. Living, studying and working in Sydney has been a great opportunity for me.
Through this blog, I will share some of my stories to inspire many other current/aspiring international students from all over the world to come to Australia and enjoy it to the fullest.
