Avid dreamer and believer.
I started my career at the biggest company in Indonesia, then I took the leap to join an unknown startup with a shady future. Back in 2013, startup was even less common in Indonesia, and everyone said I was lunatic. Started with only 4 people (CEO, one admin, one sales, and I), we grew and thrived until we are now known as Gift Card Indonesia, one of the best-funded startup in Indonesia and a part of Endeavour Entrepreneur.
In 2015 I got a scholarship from the UK government. It’s not an easy decision, but I finally decided to leave my baby and pursued my dream to study abroad. I enjoyed a full year of holiday (trust me – when you had worked in a startup before, taking a Master’s degree would feel like a holiday) and now I’m back to kicking ass at Facebook.
Hopeless romantic, no matter how hard I deny it myself.
My books: Meter per Second (2013), Follow @MerryRiana (2013), Honey Money (2010), and Not Just A Fairy Tale (2005). To be honest, none of them is brilliant, but they are sold for more than 30,000 copies anyway (tee hee).
