Vania is an Indonesian diaspora, currently living in Melbourne Australia to complete her Masters of Urban Planning and Design. Having moved to Australia in 2006 as a child, she grew up within a mix of both Australian and Indonesian culture and therefore is very motivated in contributing to the cross-cultural relationship between the two nations. Through her architectural design background, she believes that design can contribute significantly to how individuals respond and interact to each other, to their natural and built environment or to the present global issues that are affecting our daily lives. By joining AIYA National as a graphic designer, she hopes to engage the wider public on the importance of the bilateral relationship between the two contrasting yet wonderful countries.
Disty is AIYA National’s Director of Communications. Loves kopi Makassar, tempe, and angkot stickers.
