Name: Richelle Gunawan
Graduation year: 2014
Where did you go to university? What are you/did you study?
I’ve just graduated with a Bachelor of Exercise and Sports Science degree from the University of Notre Dame Australia in Perth, and I am about to start my Masters in Clinical Exercise Physiology course at Deakin University in Melbourne.
What do you expect to do after graduating?
Upon completing my Masters I will become a fully-qualified Accredited Exercise Physiologist. Exercise physiology refers to prescribing exercise as treatment not only for patients with musculoskeletal injuries but also chronic conditions. I intend to open my own practice and introduce this field of healthcare to Indonesia.
What was the best thing about Sekolah Ciputra? Tell us something memorable from your time at Sekolah Ciputra.
I was quite active in high school, having been in OSIS for 4 years including a year as the Vice School Captain and I felt like I made the most out of my time in school as a result of that. But the best thing about school will always be the people you meet.
What advice would you give to a graduating student?
I barely participated in PE or any athletic carnivals back in school (once in cross country I brought an umbrella and a bag of snacks) and now I’ve got a degree in exercise & sports science and I’m about to get another one. What you do or don’t do in high school doesn’t always determine what you’ll do in the future.
