Anisa is a black belt in Taekwondo and aspires to be an architect. She is an English and Art enthusiast who paints in her spare time. This year, she is ACG School Jakarta’s Head Girl.
Other than two years in Malaysia, French Indonesian Anisa has always lived in Indonesia. She is part of ACG’s first cohort to take the IB diploma, which she hopes will prepare her for Architecture studies at the University of Edinburgh in Scotland.
“I have always studied in international schools, so I am quite familiar with the environment,” she says. “Being in an international school has broadened my views and perspective, allowing me to become more culturally aware and hopefully helping me in the future.”
Creative and artistic, Anisa loves English and Art. She is part of ACG’s senior girls volleyball team, plays basketball and has a black belt in Taekwondo. She also takes part in the school’s many leadership opportunities.
“ACG School Jakarta is unique in that it is smaller than the average international school so each individual is known and appreciated as a whole person. It allows students to partake as leaders so they are more involved within the school community,” she says.
In her final year at the school, Anisa wants to help enrich student life through the Student Council. Alongside the leadership team, she will be hosting fundraising events with students from younger grades, and organising student committees to allow other students to be involved in a purposeful way.
So, what makes a good leader?
“I see an ideal leader showing the characteristics of being a good communicator, having the ability to delegate tasks, showing commitment and upholding their responsibilities,” Anisa says. “They should also have the ability to change their style in order to satisfy and meet the needs of their team.”
