Summary

Angga was studying in Paris for two years, taking Master of Economics and Psychology program in Université Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne. During his study, he travels a lot. He has been to 42 countries and still counting. Afterwards, he worked for 15 months in People's Representative Council / Dewan Perwakilan Rakyat as expert staff in the Committee for Interparliamentary Cooperation. After his resignation, he traveled across Indonesia to deliver seminar on how to get scholarship abroad and now he starts to build his business on traveling, combining both of his passion: education and traveling.

Motivation

Charlemagne once said, ❝To have another language is to possess a second soul❞. Very true. After Angga went back home, his French is getting rusty. That's when he finds Polyglot Indonesia, where he can practice his French again, plus meet awesome cool people. Don't believe him? Then you should come to our meetup!

Biography

Angga was born exactly 18 years after Neil Armstrong landed on the moon. For 21 years, his life was nothing special. But it all changed in January 2011 when he received an email from the French Government explaining that he got Eiffel Scholarship. He lived in the city of light, Paris, for two years, and after he finished his study, Angga traveled non-stop for eight months. He took safari trip in Kenya, climbed Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania, explored Greece for a month, took his parents to a trip around Europe for a month, studied German language in Vienna and Berlin, visited all Schengen countries, and saw the aurora borealis in Iceland.

Afterwards he worked in People's Representative Council / Dewan Perwakilan Rakyat for over a year. It was an amazing experience but he decided to quit to pursue his passion: educating people and traveling. He has been helping 17 students to study abroad, and wished to keep counting, and he wanted more people to be able to feel the experience he had. Now he starts to build his own traveling business. His first successful trip was to go back home to Paris. 

In 2017 he went to Polyglot meetup and the theme was perfect: traveling! He met cool people, practiced his french again, and then he decided to participate more. And now he is a French contributor in Jakarta Chapter.
