Celebrating Vivian Hasna Afifa

Inspiring Indonesian Women

Another wonderful nomination from a women,

about how she has been inspired by her boss.

This person is weird, she can cry by only watching Asian Games Opening Video. How? Yes, she said she feels so proud and touched that Indonesia can be this impressive. Maybe people don’t know, but she has a great love and empathy towards Indonesia. How she shared her love is through her favorite way, tourism. Through @aiesecindonesia she started from @babel.paradise in 2018. She led the program, ‘Wonderful Banga Belitung’ along with the government, community, people and international interns from AIESEC. Her purpose is to build sustainable tourism and share its beauty through her international inters. Her dedication and handwork has inspired me.

On the other side, because of her big empathy, she kept distances to be too closed to people and comfortable to herself. At one moment when I was stressed but nobody knows, she told me,

 

“Don’t ever ignore your own feelings, your feelings are important too, embrace it & let it loose.”

 

This sentence changed who I am to stop being denial and start to embrace my emotions. When it’s wrong, embrace that it’s wrong, when feeling happy, embrace the happiness, when feeling sad, embrace the sadness, when feeling worried, embrace the worries, when embracing them, it makes you move on faster.

 

Four months ago, after the plane crash in October, I got the info that after the latest search of the victims, you haven’t been found yet.

Even though I was upset, but I and the others have to accept that you left without a grave to visit, just the sea. The seed of impacts that you plant haven’t bloomed yet, it takes time but you couldn’t see it. See you and farewell. You know I’ll do just fine, and I know you’ll always support me from wherever you are. Thank you for bringing out the Best in me. Terima kasih Vivian Hasna Afifa.

Orang ini aneh, nonton video opening Asian Games cuma di YouTube aja sampe nangis. Kok bisa? Iya, dia bilang bangga dan terharu Indonesia bisa sekeren ini. Dari luar mungkin gak keliatan, tapi didalam hatinya betapa besar cinta & empati nya untuk Indonesia. Membagi cinta nya untuk Indonesia dengan cara favoritnya lewat pariwisata. Melalui @aiesecindonesiadia memulai nya dari @babel.paradise di tahun 2018. Dia memimpin program ‘Wonderful Bangka Belitung’ bersama dengan pemerintah provinsi, komunitas, masyarakat, dan international intern dari aiesec. Tujuannya untuk membangun pariwisata berkelanjutan dan membagikan keindahan pariwisata disana ke dunia lewat international intern nya. Dedikasi dan kerja kerasnya menginspirasi saya untuk ditiru. Di sisi lain, karena rasa empatinya yang besar, dia orang yang menjaga jarak untuk terlalu dekat dengan orang lain dan nyaman dengan dirinya sendiri. Di satu momen saya stress tapi gak ada yang tau dan dia bilang “Jangan pernah menghiraukan perasaan sendiri, your feelings are important too, embrace it & let it loose”. Kalimat ini mengubah diri saya untuk berhenti denial & mulai untuk embrace emotion. Saat salah akui salah, saat senang akui senang, saat sedih akui sedih, saat pusing akui pusing, ketika dikeluarkan jadinya lebih cepet untuk bisa move on. Empat bulan habis kecelakaan pesawat oktober lalu, saya dapat info kalau potongan tubuh terakhir setelah pencarian tambahan pun kamu tetep gak bisa ditemuin. Walopun kesel, tapi saya & yang lain harus terima kamu pergi tanpa ada makam untuk tempat berkunjung, hanya laut yang buat dekat. Benih2 impact yang kamu tanam belum sempat mekar, butuh waktu tapi kamu gak akan bisa liat juga disini. Sampai jumpa dan selamat jalan di senja yang baru. You know i’ll do just fine, and I know you’ll always support me from wherever you are. Thank you for bringing out the Best in me. Terima kasih Vivian Hasna Afifa.
