What have you been doing since leaving Exeter, and what are you doing now?

I’ve been working in the international development space, particularly in the education space. I went to do a Master’s of Education (Ed.M) in International Education Policy at Harvard’s Graduate School of Education, and now am in UNICEF.

Please tell us if you were a member of any societies, groups or sports clubs?

I was a member of the Indonesian Society, the International Society, and the Sailing Club.

What did you enjoy most about your programme and what was the biggest highlight?

The friends that I had made, the support from the university in pursuing academic interests (conference-learning trips and opportunities) – and the support from professors that extended beyond my time at the university.

Why did you choose to study at Exeter?

The beautiful green campus, and how serene it is. It’s also a student city which makes it very safe and comfortable. It’s also close to the beach and extremely scenic.

What advice would you give to a current student who wishes to pursue your career?

Develop a good relationship with professors, and dont be afraid to ask for help. Make use of office hours – even if it’s to come in to chat about career dilemma’s, or getting any guidance on exploring your interests in the future.
