Arif really enjoyed the learning atmosphere on his campus where the instructors were very open with various questions from his students. Education in America is seen as an investment to knit his dream. In this case, the instructors strive to ensure that the investment invested by the students and their parents does not become futile.

The experience he gained at Sampoerna Academy was very beneficial in fostering self-reliance and self-responsibility. Through this experience, Arif is optimistic that Sampoerna Academy will produce qualified leaders. He also believes that the education system in Indonesia will improve and produce graduates who are reliable in their fields.

Armed with internship experience in several well-known companies such as PT HM Sampoerna, EF Education First Jakarta, and SAKA Energy; Arif has his own definition of leadership. For Arif, a leader will be emulated and able to make people around him feel safe. One of his favorite quotes comes from a fictional character, Don Carleone; “Keep your friends close, but your enemy closer”.

The motto holder “just live your life today, enjoy it. Don’t plan it like you know it, because the master plan is not yours. “This is not afraid of failure. Because for Arif failure as a learning material to become a better person in the future.
