Lighting Up Indonesia's Future: Kelas Inspirasi 2

Sunday, February 24, 2013






Kelas Inspirasi (Inspirational Class) is a part of Indonesia Mengajar program which offers a rare opportunity to professionals to take a day off from work and be that someone who can inspire the future of our nation. The challenge for those professionals is to detached from all their daily routines and take a role as a one-day-inspirational-teacher to approximately 58 schools and thousands children from elementary school in Jakarta.

The mission is to encourage all the children about how important it is to have a dream in such a very young age. To stimulate them to not afraid of doing things, to dream big, and avoid the fear of failure first. They didn't teach math, physics, or any other particular subjects like what the children always get in their daily school lives. Instead, they introduce the children to so many doors open about what kind of professions are available out there waiting for them. The feedback were amazing and quite surprising!

I was so happy to be teamed up with such a really wonderful people, some of them were Architect, Communication Consultant, Graphic Designer, Copywriter, Show Director, Banker, and so on. It was such a delightful experience to meet all of those wonderful and honest people who wholeheartedly giving their best efforts to inspire the children. The program has successfully grabbed a massive amount of attention from all around Indonesia.











Finally it was the children who inspired all of us the most. What do I get from this once in a lifetime experience? The children teach us to always stay curious, be grateful, and always be enthusiastic in every kind of situation. And at the end of the day, I'm no longer a stranger to all of them, they've known me as Ms. Sisca, the volunteer photographer.


Thank you Kelas Inspirasi and Mr. Anies Baswedan for giving us the opportunity.
Thank you SDN 13 Pisangan Baru for teaching us the most valuable lessons that day.
Thank you my wonderful mates from team 14: Pratiwi Astar, Adjie Negara, Elisa Wang, Ratih Febrigyanti, Dyah Widiastuti, Muhammad Meizar, Diniana Frinda, Fitri Arlinkasari, and Regita Yudagni. You all are amazing!

Cheers,
