Raissa graduated from the University of Queensland in 2019 with a Bachelor of Arts degree majoring in International Relations and Economics. During her time in Australia, Raissa was involved in Indonesian and Australian communities, being active as an executive member in PPIA UQ (UQISA) & various organisations. Realising both countries’ diverse communities and cultures made her gain a great interest in Australia-Indonesia relations. Attending a networking event held by AIYA Queensland encouraged her to be a part of the organisation. Now, based in Jakarta, Raissa wants to keep in touch with Australia, and she found that AIYA is the perfect platform as it envisions to increase the engagement between Australian and Indonesian youths.
