IndonesiaMengglobal.com: Writing for a trustworthy website for Indonesian students interested in studying abroad

After meeting one of the most interesting Indonesian scholars in the U.S., I got in touch with Martin Tjua's Indonesia Mengglobal. Soon, I began writing for them, starting with a post on Sarah Lawrence, which was originally uploaded on this very website. A few weeks ago, they published another article on acceleration. 


My first article for Indonesia Mengglobal
Indonesia Mengglobal is a site created by Indonesian students for Indonesian students. It is chock-full of pertinent and fascinating information for anyone who would like to study abroad, including articles on scholarships and the application process. However, what I love most about the site is that it is, in a way, a great place to meet new people. These individuals will either inspire you or drive you to do something with your life. In this day and age, information is so readily available that it has become somewhat of a challenge to weed out the most useful from the rest. Indonesia Mengglobal, in my opinion, is one of the most trustworthy sites for Indonesians, who are interested in studying abroad, as it offers varying articles on different topics.  

In the future, I plan on continuing my contribution for Indonesia Mengglobal. Since ice cream tasters are one of the best marketing inventions ever, I will post more "article tasters", as well as the links on Kisahjika.com for each piece that I do for Indonesia Mengglobal. My third article for Indonesia Mengglobal, which seems controversial according to the editor (Martin), will be available some time in September. 

My second article for Indonesia Mengglobal
Here's part of the piece:
“Instead of four years, I will graduate from Sarah Lawrence in three years”, I explained once again. In addition to mix responses, I came across an interesting phenomenon. Many of my peers raise one brow at the statement, while members of the older generation shake my hand with praise. Acceleration, somehow, is stigmatized by the majority of youth I’ve met, including other college students. Seen as a disadvantageous endeavor, acceleration is deemed to catapult the student to enter the workforce much quicker.
