Deicy Silvia Wenas
I am an ordinary woman who spent early childhood and education in a small town called Poso in Central Sulawesi, Indonesia. Being locked up for 17 years in that rural society with limited education facilities didn't make me lack of knowledge. Reading was my window to see the world outside. Finishing my study at Klabat University-North Sulawesi with a great honor "Magna Cum Laude" was a proof that I could do as best as other urban people did. My strong determination to a success life has led me to the pathway I have chosen. Never say "NO!" to any challenges has made me who I am now. Becoming a Manager of a multinational company in my early 30s was never been in my imagination before. I believe this is the fruit of my strong determination to work hard and do my best on every given chance. But I know my journey is not finished yet. It's just been started. No matter how long this life is giving me breaths, and how difficult the way I am walking through, or how heavy the burdens I have to carry, I know that in the end I will be smiling and tapping my own shoulder saying, "I did it!” Because one thing I know for sure, I was created for a purpose. It is to serve my God, my family, my church, my company, my country and my world. That's what I am here for.
