Describe your contributions to and achievements in family planning.

We develop an app, social media campaign and training on family planning targeting young people. One of our program is 'Muda Berencana' which means Youth Plan, a platform for young people to plan their future through family planning.

What sparked your passion for family planning?

I believe that everyone deserve the life they always wanted, and that every child should be born wanted. Therefore I believe that family planning is the platform for everyone to reach their goals, also an indicator of equality where women have control over their own bodies.

If you are named a winner of 120 under 40, how will you use this new platform and the $1000 grant to advance your work? :

I will use this platform to exchange ideas and lesson learnt with other winner, also to use it to promote myself to work better with the health ministry and family planning association in Indonesia. I will use the money for family planning campaign, partnering with midwives in rural Indonesia.
