I aspire for a world where all people have equal rights and opportunities, regardless of gender; a world where girls and women have full access to basic rights, from health, education, security, clean energy, water, sanitation. Let’s make gender inequality a thing of the past and collaborate to make the world a better place for everyone.

What ignited your pursuit for gender equality?
Having daily, long-term exposure to international organizations’ online presence and publications has helped me discover national and international issues with their myriad problematic facts. It allows me to realize that gender quality and other problems, such as poverty or poor health and well-being, are intrinsically linked. To advocate for gender equality, we can’t work in silos.
Please share your biggest wins as an advocate for gender equality.
Energy access lifts women out of poverty. My publication discussed a village model development with an integrated renewable energy system for rural productivity zone in East Nusa Tenggara, an underdeveloped region with poor electrification and access to clean cooking. Socio-economic benefits before-after analysis demonstrated support to SDG 1, 3-8, 10, and 13.
Outside of your gender equality advocacy work, what do you enjoy doing?
Reading articles and publications of global and recent issues, learning and exploring new things, writing poems, essays, and short stories, and traveling.
