Close to the end of the program, I am thankful for myself and all the people who are helping me to run the program smoothly and successful. This five months experience is unbelievable, so many things are amazing, new friends, mentors, and inspirations just popping out day by day. Looked back to my personal journal, review and flash back through all the phases that I have passed was beautiful. One of them is, for the first time Iam becoming a trainer for and deliver this four days of workshop full with spanish, which I still remember I have no idea what would works at that time, but now is one of the coolest experience that I had.
Indeed so many memories are flashing around, what I feel so bless it’s also because my mindset is growing, my head is full of idea now, being honest I don’t even know what I will do in the next step, because so many things inspired me specifically in the sustainable and tourism development. In fact, since 2014 I have tried to work on tourism project in several villages in Indonesia but I never consider about the opportunity of hiking as a tools of development for society also environmental protection.
After learning through this program, I felt that I understood clearly hike is needed in Indonesia. Since the word of hiking is not popular in Indonesia, I found this is new way to start, for example my hometown has so many potentials and there are a lot of possibilities that can be used for hiking, but nobody is touching this field.
Finally, to wrap it all. My conclusion is, the program has given me so many things to bring back home! There is so many ways to develop ourselves , and STARS Project – EVS is one of the best learning process that I had!
