- FORBES 30 UNDER 30, HUMAN COMPUTER INTERACTION
- UNIVERSITY OF ST ANDREWS SCOTLAND
Having found my niche at the intersection of technology, design and social change, I am a Chevening scholar (2021/2022) pursuing an MSc in Human-Computer Interaction at The University of St Andrews in Scotland.
Before my career break, I was responsible for building communities and managing scale programs for startups across South East Asia with Amazon Web Services. Prior to being a proud Amazonian, I was a tech consultant at Deloitte Digital, committing to the full spectrum of agile software delivery including design, development, deployment, testing and project management. I graduated from New York University in 2016, where I pursued double major in journalism and political science with a joint minor in computer science and math.
Indian in origin and Indonesian by nationality, I have also lived in the U.S., UAE, and the Philippines.
Beyond the professional realm, I am dangerous when bored. I spend my fleeting spare time experimenting with art, contorting my body into a pretzel, testing my attention span by binge watching The Office over coffee ice cream or hibernating. I’m also a brain dump for pick-up lines and lame jokes; reach out if you need help to fill the awkward silences in between social conversations.
