Harera El Muhalla of batch 2017 is also known by his peers as a talented musician. It’s rather rare for them to see Era not listening to music in one day. As musical as he is, Era was not actually born into a family of musicians. He attributed his musical abilities to the interest that he has towards music. “Not one of my family members is a musician. So for me, determination contributes far more to my abilities than talent does,” as he told us. He started out as an autodidactic piano player since elementary school. Having no formal teacher, he turned to tutorials on YouTube as his source of pop-oriented piano knowledge. “Of course, I thought of playing the piano as a fun activity for an elementary student. That’s what kept me going until junior high!”
Greetings! My name is Salsabilla Sasha, a third year student in IUP Faculty of Psychology, Universitas Gadjah Mada. I am one out of seven students that are currently pursuing an exchange year in Rikjsuniversiteit Groningen, a Dutch for University of Groningen. So far, to study abroad has been the greatest experience in my life, where I get to meet a whole lot new faces, cultures and routines. Without any exaggeration, this experience is slowly, but surely, making me into a better and independent person.
