Natasha Putri Tiara
Graduating year: 2016
Where did you go to university? What did you study? Can you please share your experience applying to Uni?
Everyone’s experience at university is bound to be different, but with no doubt, we all gained something that will help us stepping up pursuing our careers. I went to Regent’s University London studying International business (with French). The hardest part was not the subjects. However, adapting is one of the biggest struggles. I had to move to 3 different universities in 3 years, which were Regent’s University (London), EDHEC (Nice, France), and IESEG (Paris, France) I decided to pick that path because I’m intrigued with the challenge of studying business in French and thus I can keep on pushing myself to the limit. What has become my freeway was in fact my IB Diploma certificate that I got in Sekolah Ciputra. Without those, I needed to take several years before actually entering the Uni, so I’m glad I made the decision to take the programme.
What kind of work/business do you do? In what way did the school contribute to your job right now?
Besides being a mother, I work in the F&B Industry managing Maystar restaurant. Also, I’m currently working on my own photography business and doing retail business surrounding baby products. Sekolah Ciputra helped me to not be afraid in trying out new things or activities; in this case, it always pushes me to try to create businesses in fields that I actually like.
What advice would you give to a graduating student?
Do something you’re passionate about, then your career wouldn’t feel like a job.
Plan ahead, it rarely works out as we wanted but it will pave the way through and reaching somewhere better.
What was the best thing about Sekolah Ciputra? Tell us something memorable from your time at school.
Sekolah Ciputra is more than just where I used to study, it’s not only a school but it’s also a home. It shaped all of us, not to just become a good student that aces all of the grades, but to become someone that we really want to be.
Teachers are more than the school staff, they are like family to us. They not only educated us, but they made us grow. There are too many memories of school, every time I pass through Sekolah Ciputra I feel nostalgic. Those days when we had to perform in an assembly in Ciputra Hall, all of the basketball competitions and the sports day that was very competitive are still vividly in my head.
Would you recommend Sekolah Ciputra to others? If yes, what would you say about it?
With no doubt, I would recommend this school to everyone. 100% I’m enrolling my kids in Sekolah Ciputra. It’s not a school where everybody is expected to do something parallel, it’s a school that broadens your specialty and sculpts you into the best version of “you”
What do you enjoy doing in your free time?
In my free time, I prioritize sports. I always like being in a “competitive” vibe, so I enjoy sports such as basketball, soccer, badminton, and lately golf.
Anything else you would like to share?
Sekolah Ciputra is just the best ️
