Sheila came to Australia in 2011 to pursue her Bachelor of Commerce degree at University of Queensland. She was actively involved in PPI Australia before she was approached with the opportunity to start AIYA Queensland chapter in 2012. She realised that there is a need for an organisation like AIYA to be the platform for the young people to be involved and connected to Australia-Indonesia related opportunities. Since then, Sheila is a proud member of AIYA and became AIYA National Treasurer in 2015.
Being an Indonesian professional living in Australia, she is very passionate in promoting Indonesia’s beautiful holiday destinations, Indonesian food and Indonesian-related opportunities to her friends and colleagues at ANZ Banking Group. Sheila is currently working as a Senior Manager in Trade Portfolio Management team and based in Brisbane.
Outside work, Sheila enjoys travelling, singing, playing the piano and archery. Sheila hopes that through her involvement in AIYA she will contribute in strengthening the bilateral relationship between the two neighbouring countries.
