JAKARTA, SABANG – INDONESIA IMPACT CIRCLE is back again, and in this 2.0 session we are discussing about “Muda(h) Berkarya” or Innovate Easily. As INDONESIA IMPACT CIRCLE aim to give a different topic every month that align with current issues among youth, and since we are seeing the emerging number of start-ups in Indonesia that owned by inviduals under 30 years old, we are pretty sure it is a must topic to talk about.
We invited young CEOs with various focus of business, and also our representative from AIESEC Indonesia. We open the session by listening to inspirational thoughts from Rani Soebijantoro, Co-Founder of Bookabuku and Bookasession, a platform to lend books and also, they held several empowering and development workshops with topics or materials from books that they already read, impressive!. Rani Talks about her struggling back then as a victim of bully, try her best to stay in her boldness, and convert the negativity surround her into a positive business as now we called as Bookabuku and Bookasession. The second keynote session coming from our current President of AIESEC Indonesia 2017/2018, talking about the perks of being Inonesian youth, what are things that actually we should be grateful of, and try to turn all of this resources into impactful objects that could affect bigger societies. Fajri told us a lot of data about our resources, with his background in Engineering mixed with his work now as Country Director/President of AIESEC Indonesia, makes the discussion more relevant, and yet awakening at the same time. The third speaker coming from CEO of AyoBaca.in , an audiobook platform, to help people in needs (blind people) to enjoy books equally as other people. Represent by their CMO Fandi Andrian, we are mesmerized by the courage they take to touch this problem, and having a lot of discussions with people in needs, to make their platform suitable with their user. The three of them offer different kind of experiences but equallt motivating the attendants.
Just like usual, the most awaited session which is panel discussion comes in, as the attendants rushingly raise their hands to ask few questions to our panelist that also stand as our speakers that day, it is a good thing seeing how the attendants try to know more about how we can embrace every opportunity also try to sustain our ideas so that it will not just a one time implementation, but continuously impacting and affecting surroundings.
We closed the session with a simple conclusion, one of the delegates ask a tricky question said “Why Now?” , the panelist took silence for a minute, and Rani comes up with a bold answer said “Because why not?”, and suddenly we are all smiling while nodding to the answer. A simple yet true answer, that contains of deeper meaning, that somehow we build walls surround us with our own thoughts that makes us afraid to embrace things ahead, while in fact, it’s a matter of how good you want to try, and how commit you want to realized your ideas.
We end up that day happily, and some of the delegates are running straight to our speakers for having another discussion and networking with others.
