On May 19th 2018, Perhimpunan Pelajar Indonesia Autralia (PPIA) of University of New South Wales held their annual Indonesian Ideas Conference 2018, or mostly known as ICON 2018. It was a conference that brought inspirational people from different fields to inspire the next generation, which was all of the students there. They aimed to inspire the youth of Indonesia to make an impact and create new opportunities for others.
Big names such as young actress Chelsea Islan, Faye Simanjuntak (the founder of Rumah Faye), Putra Nababan (senior news journalist), William Tanuwijaya (co-founder of Tokopedia), and Arnold Poernomo (chef and entrepreneur), made an appearance in the event.
As speakers, they shared their ideas and experiences for the attendees. All of the speakers inspired us to broaden our perspective to do something new and out of your passion. And there wasn’t ‘too early to take an action’.
The event also was enlivened by Jaz, a young rising singer, and a heap of performances from University of New South Wales student. Hoping to see you guys on the next ICON!
