“Participating in the Student Company Program was a very life changing experience for me. It became the starting point of my personal business journey. Through this program, I learned and received real business experience by creating our own mini-enterprise.

Creating my clothing line was more about innovation and entrepreneurship. But being a President Director was a little different. I had to take responsibility to lead five divisions, including Production, Marketing, Finance, Human Resources, and Public Relations. It meant I had to achieve an understanding of those 5 fields in order to supervise and control the operation of the company. It was not easy but, thankfully, Prestasi Junior Indonesia provided us with helpful business assistance from instructors and volunteers.

Prestasi Junior Indonesia provides the students and alumni with a wonderful opportunity It connects us with many influential people who inspire us to achieve a better future. The Student Company Program really emphasizes the importance of great teamwork and networking to create a successful company. However, most importantly, the Student Company taught me not to become a boss, but a leader. I am proud and grateful to become a part of the Prestasi Junior Indonesia family. Thank you PJI!”
