Imagine 6: What is life like in 2020 for the girls and women you helped empower in 2010?

So, in the act 6 part, I was teaching little kids especially the little girls about english. I think the thing that I already teach them will be very useful for them because english is an important subject if we want to be successful. Their value will increase since their knowledge is wider than the one that never had an actual english lesson. This way, they won't be treat as worthless person. All this time, people always think that women must only work at home. They will change the world…

Act-6: Help empower one girl or woman with better access to education or economic opportunity.

For this Mission, I need to help one girl to get a better access to education or economic opportunity.

They chose to name this program riveria because the school is located near the river. Here is the photo of evidence when I teach the little kids, especially the little girl about english.…

Act-5: Try out an alternative currency or exchange system for yourself!

This past few days we were learning about alternative currency. Basically, alternative currency means that we can only use the money in a certain place. Before this method was exist, there's a same method as this one called barter. Using this method we can trade others people's goods. For example you want a laptop from Mr. B, and Mr. A want to have 10 of your chicken. After both of you reach an agreement finally you can trade. The only disadvantages to this method is that we need to carry…

Learn 5- What breakthrough solution will change the future of money forever?

In this world that we live in, we always need something to survive. We as a human being can't have everything in our earth by ourself or monopolize it.

However as time goes by, we can't always carry our resources everywhere to be trade. The solution regarding this solution is a money. Money is a trading tools.…

Act-3: Design a new way to power something you use everyday.

Everyday I always use my phone to communicate. However, Sometimes I always run out of a battery in a place where I can't charge. My Idea is that I'm going to put a small solar panel above my hat so it can receive sunlight and turn it into electricity. That way I can Charge my phone wherever I run out of battery in a place where I can't find any electricity. This is the drawing that I make based on the idea that I talked about. …

Learn-2: What's the biggest food security challenge near you?

In my country which is Indonesia, there's some issue that may bother the food security. For example, Pest. Pest in Indonesia is not really threatening the farmer but we still need to be careful of that animals. The second issue is flood. I think floods is really dangerous because flood can make the crops die from too much water. That's really bad because it can affect other people. So the solution is that people need to stop throwing trash to the river and the government must expand the size…

Act-2: Increase the food security of at least one person in your community.

So to increase food security starting a home garden I think it's a good idea because, when there's a disaster or something that can affect you can just eat something from your own garden. To start a home garden you don't really need a big area. the only thing you need is the seed that most likely will grow in your area. Maybe you could help other people by growing different crops so in the ends you can just share what you get and get a better quality and quantity.

Imagine 2: It's March 10, 2020. What are you eating for dinner?

In march 2020 I think I will eat less food because at that time some of the animal will extict and it will distract the food chain. So I think that, in that day I or maybe we as a human will eat through an infusion. The food will mix with water there. That day all of the water from the river, lake and sea, will be polluted so we can't drink from there anymore. Also I think that the infusion will be expensive since they need to be mixed with a special food and drink. So I think that not…

Learn 2- What's the biggest food security challenge near you?

Right now, I 'm living in Indonesia and I think that there's no security issue that will bother us. Maybe we can take into account like for example flood. flood in Indonesia more specifically in Jakarta is the biggest problem that can't be solve, because of that many crops have die. That problem will be worsened if rainy season comes. The water will get more and more until the river can't handle it anymore. I think that the government already have a solution regarding this problem. The…

Imagine- 1: Imagine your future self.

I've been thinking this past months, what will I become in ten, twenty or maybe thirty years from today, but since the objective ask me to imagine my ten years me and what would I become that time I would focus on that first. So basically, my dream is to become a person that my family can be proud of. In the other hand I also think that it would be a meaningless if only my family knows that I'm doing something good. I think that it will be better if I can also help other people from their…

Act- 1: Choose a hero to shadow:

For this task, I need to choose a "Hero" that had a contribution to do something helpful for other people. In this case after I search google for a while I finally found a hero that I think made a good contribution to the community that he helped. His name is Prigi Arisandi. His basic interest is in saving the Surabaya river.

Their job is to find out valuable information about the river, for example, how badly polluted is the river, what industries are polluting the river etc. Then he…

Learn-1: The Secret code of Innovation:

Innovator means that someone can make something useful to the community from limited and

reusable material.

After I read that sentence I think I’m going to try to act by following this word, “Creating

“transparent” technologies”. Transparent technologies means that, we make some technology

that not only useful and cheap for the community but also easily understand by the community.

For example I could make something like a cooker from their limited resources. This…

public servants

The exchange works directly for state and public workers and servants. It gives them credit in exchange for the amount of public work they contribute to the community. The more constructive they are based off a base rate the more credit they recieve.

Where I will be in ten years.

Ten years from now I will be in a political job assisting with people in the midlands of South Carolina particularly the rural working class and farmers. As the class of people that feed the nation I find that it is imperative that we assist with making sure they produce as much food as possible. I would like to support local scientists as well that are leading in research on how to produce food more efficiently. I will also be participating in missions to foreign countries to help people with…See More
