Fitriyanty Fachurudin

International Studies and Business Administration, West Virginia University

Fitriyanty Fachurudin or Fitri was born in Tenggarong 1995 and faced the fact that the father had to go to Saudi Arabia to make a living. Living away from my father for 10 years did not discourage him, instead it became a trigger for Fitri to learn better, and to give change to her family.

While still in high school, Fitri never hesitated to help her mother peddle snacks in front of the house alley. Every morning, with her mother, Fitri walked to the market to buy ingredients for her mother’s merchandise. These merchandise are the additional income of the Fitri family apart from the funds sent by his father every month from abroad.

Fitri believes that learning seriously will make her a successful person in the future. Inspired by his father’s presence in Saudi Arabia, Fitri established himself to become the First Women’s Ambassador in Saudi Arabia. He believes, international standard education is able to support him in achieving these goals.

Shortly after completing study at Sampoerna Academy, Fitri continued her education at West Virginia University (WVU), majoring in International Study and Business Administration and Women Gender Studies. His seriousness in pursuing his ideals enabled him to win second place in the debate competition around Human Rights (HAM). His favorite subject while studying in WVU is Citizenship and a foreign language. He really likes politics and communicates with people from various parts of the world.

After completing his undergraduate studies, Fitri aspires to continue her education to a higher level in order to be able to get a Master of Bachelor Arts (MBA) degree. With an MBA he will attain, women who highly uphold human rights, especially women and workers, will devote themselves to non-governmental organizations that provide protection to workers with TKI who are abroad.
