Committee Members

Tata is a senior student at Universitas Gadjah Mada. She studies international law as she wants to pursue a career as a diplomat. Her experiences participating in several short courses with students from Australia brought her to AIYA in 2018. That was when she developed a big interest in the Indonesia-Australia bilateral relationship. Tata is fond of culture, especially Javanese. She is aware that not many people, especially youth like us, are into a traditional culture. She believes that traditional culture doesn’t only belong to old people, but the youths as well to embrace and preserve the richness of the culture itself.
