The BeauTraveler is ...
I was the first generation of my family who went to the university and lived overseas. Born and raised in the western part of Java, I was quite an oxymoron.
I am a hybrid of a devout Muslim mother and an agnostic father. I grew up having to go to Koran school almost every day after school, went to a Catholic school only for me to end up transforming into the female version of my father.
My flight to Istanbul in 2010 was the very first time I got on the plane. I stayed in Izmir for the summer after getting a scholarship to learn Turkish in Izmir for three months.
In 2013, I moved to Saudi Arabia to work as a flight attendant, only to quit a couple of years later. After a couple of years working in corporate, I decided to start my freelancing (and blogging!) journey in 2017.
