Who Am I?


When in France

It is not about who I am, but about who I am set out to be. I went to graduate school, I enrolled a master student’s in Bogor Agricultural University major in Entomology. I got my first job in pest control company. That job was only for approx. 3 months, before I decided to take graduate school. Now I’m already graduated from Bogor Agricultural University and start to set up a proper job.

Recently in 2015 Im become a Journal Editor, helping out my supervisor to complete the Proffessor requirement. Now I’m become a Lecturer in one of Public University in Karawang named: Universitas Singaperbangsa Karawang (Unsika). I responsible to hold the “Tridharma Perguruan Tinggi” That is: “Pengajaran, Penelitian, dan Pengabdian Masyarakat”. Lately I am become a leader in Pengabdian Mayarakat. I responsible to handle Pest Management in Desa Kalibuaya, Kec. Telaga Sari, Karawang. I am focusing in the conservation of Trichogramma sp. as the natural enemies of “Penggerek Batang Padi” Scirpophaga sp. Me and my team responsible to educate the farmers in Kalibuaya “Kelompok Tani Benong II”. The upcoming agenda is held meetings with the farmers and work together to rearing the alternative host Corcyra cephalonica an so on. The final target is the farmers could handle to mass rearing of the Trichogamma sp. and they could spread it well. Also we maintain the environtment with planting flowery flowers like sunflowers and “Kembang Kenikir” to support the parasitoids life. Hope it work well.

Typical course of life for a decent living. Now I am supposed to wait for chance to get PhD school (in insect ecology, community structure, and soybean pest), searching for my passion, outside the education and ecology world, and set up my love life for future.

It’s quite ambitious considering how the universe of corporation seems to book your entire time. As one well put it, nowadays we spend most of our working days surviving, while trully living life in weekends. Unfortunately… Still, that does not stop me from pursuing my one dream, that is to become a researcher, lecturer, and mother to be for my future life.

I have decided to control my hunger for writing through short stories archived on a blog in the world wide web. It is not difficult, it just takes some time until I see my dream come true, and that is when life will become interesting.

When you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it.
