People, I am so thrilled to have been selected in one of the most renowned and prestigious leadership program in this country. I know some of the alumni of this program, and for your information: they are indeed inspiring people. Like in my previous note note, I am really looking forward to meeting those outstanding students from all across Indonesia. Meet and greet with high-spirited Indonesian young leaders.

My intention writing this post is not to show you how great I am (Oh, come on! There are so many other smarter and more outstanding people than me, aren't there?) I just hope that after you read this simple post, you will be inspired and start thinking that : "Hey, they can do that! Me too. I can do the same thing, too! Or probably more!"

Wanna be part of us? Here are the first step (So prepare yourself now..)

  • Outstanding academic credentials (cumulative GPA should be greater than 3.30/4.00); 
  • Outstanding leadership skills as evidenced by a significant contribution to extra-curricular activities; 
  • Excellent interpersonal skills; 
  • Fluency in English (for day-to-day oral and written communication), 
  • High energy and a clear passion for having impact on a national scale for Indonesia.

You can. You Will. 

You can, you will, (when you really believe)
