My TED story
An active volunteer since 11 years old, I have evolved into a more active engagement within the community development space by developing economic platforms for underpriviledged and socially isolated communities. Mainly in Aceh (Indonesia) and Phapha Bari (Nepal), my team and I have built livelihood training schools, distributed supplies to displacement camps and many others in the past seven years.
