1. After graduating from Sekolah Ciputra, where do you study? What is your major?
Raffles Design Institute (Singapore) majoring in Visual Communication Design.

I worked in Singapore for a year at a magazine company and in a transportation platform as their Creative Executive and Social Media Specialist, and I worked remotely in a creative agency for another year before flying back to Surabaya. 

3. What is your current occupation?
I work remotely as a Web and Graphic Designer for Plastic Bank (Vancouver, Canada), and I also own CV. Morlinka Official and Co-Founding Rega Creative in Bali.

4. For CV. Morlinka Official and Rega Creative, what product/service do you provide?
CV. Morlinka Official sells crystal-infused products, from body mist room spray to candles. Rega Creative is a creative agency focusing on Branding, Social Media Marketing and Web Design and Development.

5. What was the inspiration behind your business?
The inspiration behind CV. Morlinka Official was my love for crystals. Having troubles with anxiety and insomnia, I found crystals to be life-changing while going through tough times, particularly during the pandemic. For Rega Creative, I have always wanted to have my own creative agency.

7. What are some challenges that you faced as a Web and Graphic Designer and also as a Business Owner? How do you overcome it?
The first challenge as a web and graphic designer would be staying creative and inspired in design work. I overcame it by collaborating with other designers to bring fresh perspectives and stay updated on the latest design trends and tools. As a business owner, the challenge is managing financial aspects, such as budgeting, cash flow and taxes. I overcame it by listing all sources of income and expenses, setting up separate savings, and hiring an accountant to help me out.

8. What was the biggest challenge of moving to a new city?
The biggest challenge would be to adjust to the different pace of life and local customs. But in general, I don’t see moving to Bali as a challenge. It is an excellent fresh start: a new place, new people, and a new environment. Change is a thrilling adventure.

9. What do you enjoy most about your new environment?
Work-life balance and the relaxed pace allow me to pursue personal interests and creative projects. The warm and welcoming community made it easier for me to adapt and make new friends. 

10. In what way did Sekolah Ciputra contribute to your jobs right now?
Problem-solving, time management and discipline. I remember a period when we had to learn and study on our own. Good time management is a key to what I’m doing now. 

11. What was the best thing about Sekolah Ciputra? Tell us something memorable from your time at Sekolah Ciputra
I’d say the activities aside from academics; the CAS, the sports, and music events – bring out the competition in ourselves. 

12. What advice would you give to a graduating student?
There is no one-size-fits-all approach to success, so never stop learning! Stay curious. 

13. Would you recommend Sekolah Ciputra to others? If yes, what would you say about it?
Yes, I’m proud to say that studying at Sekolah Ciputra has not only nurtured my design and entrepreneurial skills but also planted effective communication and presentation abilities. I had a head-start before my university, making it easier for me to adapt. 

14. What do you enjoy doing in your free time?
