Q and A with Daisy from Jakarta, Indonesia, living in Seattle, WA
“If I don’t start now, I would never start.”
Q: What are you passionate about?
A: My passion is to support other women. Literally. Especially those who are changing careers and looking to be entrepreneurs or those who are reentering the workforce postpartum. I would love to get them where I am today by sharing my journey and guiding them there.
Q: What were your younger years like?
A: I have a master’s degree in counseling psychology. My family has always been made of hard-working people. They are my support system in terms of getting me where I am in my career today. My dad is my role model. Seeing him working really hard and tirelessly supporting me in my career journey is what gets me to where I am today and also the combination of that plus putting myself out there, stepping out of my comfort zone, and keeping on going no matter what life brings my way.
Q: What is something valuable you’d like others to know?
A: I always have this thought, “If I don’t start now, I would never start,” so I keep on going and feel the fear and do it anyway!
Q: What does feminism mean to you?
A: I was born and raised in Jakarta, Indonesia, where women are traditionally secondary to men, and advocacy for women is next to none. Feminism means advocacy for us, women to have equal opportunities, and freedom to choose which career or life path we want to have.
