Hi, I am Indah Gilang Pusparani. I am a writer and public speaker on scholarship, overseas education, development issues, travelling, and lifestyle.
Having previously lived in London, Singapore, and Muncie, United States, I am now based in Jakarta/Depok with frequent travel to my hometown in Cirebon, West Java.
I started this website in 2009, intrigued by my irresistable flow of ideas in my mind about my study, experiences in student activism, student exchange programs, graduate study, lots and lots of travelling up to two-digit countries for competitions, conferences, study, and backpacking. From a personal platform named “Pusparaniology: My Future, My History”, this website has grown with huge following, people who also share my enthusiasm about all things overseas education, development issues, and travelling-related with personal tips and touch.
If I am not here, I am working on different projects with media / development industry, a place where I am equally passionate about and trying to make my mark in the world.
I graduated MSc Development Administration and Planning from University College London, United Kingdom in 2015. I finished bachelor degree from International Relations from Universitas Indonesia in 2014, with two exchange programs in Political Science at National University of Singapore and New Media in Journalism at Ball State University, USA.
I was awarded “Diplomacy Award” at Harvard World Model United Nations 2011 and named as Indonesian Gifted Researcher by Australian National University. I previously worked at the Commonwealth Parliament Association UK and a diplomacy consulting firm Best Delegate LLC in USA.
