Stephen is currently an undergraduate in the University of Melbourne. Highly passionate about languages and inter-cultural communities, he sees AIYA as an excellent initiative to bridge the gap and barriers between the two neighbouring countries. Being in both NAILA and AIYA has given him many different insights on the bilateral relationship, something that has been improving dramatically ever since he first came to Australia. On a grassroots level, he is happy to connect diverse individuals through AIYA events in Victoria, and also (gently) correcting people’s Indonesian during LX’s (Language Exchanges).
Disty is AIYA National’s Director of Communications. Loves kopi Makassar, tempe, and angkot stickers.
