Bio: 
I am an Indonesian girl looking for volunteering opportunities around the globe. Prefer to volunteer for education or children cause. I worked for McKinsey & Company, a top global management consulting firm, for three years as my first professional experience. I was a general consultant back then, advising clients ranging from government on climate change to largest Indonesian mining company on lean operations. I learned a lot about business and management and sharpened my analytical and managerial skills during the three years period. Later, I learned that I was really into sustainability, having worked on a National Biomass Strategy project for a country. I resigned from McKinsey and joined another management consulting firm called Poyry, which specialized in Natural Resources and Sustainability. I stayed only for 1.5 years with the Firm, as I went pessimistic about the whole notion of saving the environment while sacrificing economic development, as most cases happen in developing countries. However, I am still passionate about business, and learning how business works creates sparks within me. I joined a start-up company called Berrybenka, which sells affordable fashion products for Indonesian mass-market. The founder hired me as VP of Hijabenka, leading Berrybenka's sister company that sells muslim fashion products. I love traveling, and I especially love nature. I am attracted to developing countries (Nepal, Bhutan, Morocco are on top of my list) however it is quite difficult to find friends who share similar interest, so I often go alone. Nepal has been on my list for quite some time, and I would have been there last year had it not been hit by earthquake.
Volunteering Experience: 
I have no real volunteering experience, but I have been working on few initiatives in my previous companies. Few are listed below. - Mentor for Young Leaders for Indonesia (YLI) McKinsey & Company. McKinsey has a vision of developing 1,000 Indonesian young leaders in 5 years and the office initiated a 6-month leadership training for 4th year college students. During the training, they undergo two projects: the first one is personal project that they need to create from scratch and lead. The second one is a group project where a group of 5 students are seconded to an organization, a company or a government entity to carry out improvement initiatives. I was mentoring the 5 students for their personal projects and group project with Indonesia's President Delivery Unit. They were tasked to develop a war room for President of Indonesia, which would be used by Mr President to monitor performance of his Cabinet. - Lead and Committee for In-Office Fridays. McKinsey has a monthly office meet-up called In-Office Friday (IOF) to make sure all the consultants meet each other at least once a month (we always work from the clients' offices, hence very rarely meet each other). While it's called "In-Office Friday", it often takes place outside the office and sometimes on weekend. The most remarkable IOF was when the whole office went to a boarding school where all the students were on full scholarship and selected based on their IQ, EQ, and leadership capabilities. These students were underprivileged and had gone through very strict tests to get to school there. The consultants shared experiences and learnings from our professional lives, and coached how to use MBTI to understand themselves and each other to get a better team performance. - Volunteer for McKinsey Campus Info Session. McKinsey Campus Info Session is a visit held by McKinsey office to recruit the best fresh graduates across campuses. I'm currently seeking volunteering experience related to education or children. Activities can include: - Teaching in English - Developing program that requires strategic thinking or detail operational planning or building systems - Capability building or upskilling - Project management
Education: 
Bachelor Degree, Chemical Engineering from University of Indonesia
Occupation: 
Vice President of Hijabenka (www.hijabenka.com)
