Therefore, not only that she’s exhibiting her love for Indonesian culture through her social media platforms, but Arawinda is also trying to spread positive impact for other youngsters in Indonesia.

Your TikTok page is full of you dancing to the current trends, but what is dancing to you?
I like to dance karena buat aku itu adalah sebuah cara untuk mengekspresikan diri aku. Nari itu buat aku simple, cuma sekedar aku pasang musik, terus gerak sebebas mungkin dengan segala emosi dan ekspresi, itu kenapa aku suka banget untuk menjadi dancer. Dance is also a way that I can keep myself fit, karena dengan dancing aku mempunyai workout regimen yang ketat jadi aku bisa tetap healthy and fit.”
Which dance trend on TikTok that you like the most and why?
For me there are 2 types of dance trends on TikTok. Satu yang dancenya gampang dan cuma menggunakan tangan, dan ada juga yang real dances yang koreonya dibuat oleh real dancers. Yup, I like that one because it’s more challenging for me.”
How did you first discover your personal fashion preference?

“As I’m a girl who lives in a city that’s full of people that are very easily influenced by anyone else, when I was like 13, I’m always influenced with what my friends were wearing and I never really found my identity until the last couple of years. Dan menurut aku style itu evolving, but right now, I’m very into Indonesian style and my wardrobe is full of local brands. And I prefer thrifting rather that shopping on real stores karena jauh lebih bagus buat bumi kita since fast fashion itu mengeluarkan jejak karbon yang banyak. Jadi aku coba sebaik mungkin untuk membeli second hand clothing atau mengurangi belanja secara overall.”

Going through your Instagram page, it’s clear that you favor ethnic Indonesian as a style.

Ethnic Indonesia buat aku adalah pakaian-pakaian yang membuat aku mereka like I’m in touch with my own culture and country. Aku tuh suka banget googling busana-busana orang Indonesia jaman dulu untuk acuan aku memakai baju sehari-hari. So for me, kalau kita semua bisa lebih familiar ourselves with our culture, pasti kita akan jauh lebih mengerti apa itu ethnic Indonesia.”
