Galuh lives in Ottawa, Canada with her family and is preparing to work with senior citizens as part of a community program that aims to enrich the lives of seniors by pairing them with active and interesting youth.
She is looking forward to this position, inspired by her late grandfather to share her interests and time with elders in need of support and friendship.
Her creative and optimistic approach to this type of work started back in Jakarta when she organized a craft co-op at the Thalassaemia clinic there. While the craft co-op is on a break right now, her combination of energy, creativity and business skills enabled her to empower others to raise funds for community building events and Thalassaemia awareness.
Galuh believes that: “One must also always use one’s heart to do good things for others. Because I believe that if you do good things for others, good things come to you and it has made me the person I am today.”

“Never give up, never stop learning and never stop taking chances.”
Focus on what you really enjoy: the family and friends you care for and the activities you love doing. Your condition is simply something you need to take care of so that you can get on with other things in life. While it may sometimes feel like you are isolated by your challenges, you are not alone. Connect with others who understand your challenges and can help you.
