Hi! I am Arum Kamala from Indonesia. Currently, I work in a unicorn company based in Jakarta with the partnership role and want to utilize my skill and knowledge that I acquired by contributing to this program, as I believe that success is when we can help others to succeed.
I am beyond happy to be a part of the AASYP family! let’s rock!
My name is Adrian and I’m from Perth, Western Australia. I’m just about to complete my undergraduate degree in international business so I felt it was a good time to take on some extra work by volunteering with AASYP. I really enjoy international business and the way it ties countries together.
I heard about AASYP through my friends and have been eager to get involved for a while. I love learning about the world and being taught new things through others. Some of my main hobbies include playing beach volleyball, salsa and bachata dancing, gardening, cooking and languages. At the moment I’m trying to learn the languages Tamil and Sinhala.
I find the ASEAN region super interesting and can’t wait for the opportunity to travel around or work in the region myself.
