Abie is a rising humanitarian leader from Indonesia working towards the global protection for migrants and the sexual and gender minority community.

Today, Abie shares with his goals during the Atlas Corps Fellowship.

What does leadership mean to you?

Leadership is the ability to inspire, influence, and guide individuals or groups toward a common goal or vision by creating an environment where everyone feels heard, respected, and valued, regardless of gender, race, ethnicity, age, religion, or other characteristics.

What are you most excited about joining Atlas Corps as a Fellow?

I am most excited about having the opportunity to gain valuable experience, develop my leadership skills, and expand my network while working on meaningful projects that make a difference in the world.

Tell us more about what you will be doing at Princeton in Asia (PiA)?

My responsibility as their Programs Fellow covers supporting PiA in planning, designing, and implementing its programs. I will also support establishing connections on campus at Princeton University with programs conducting work in Indonesia. In addition, I will be working on refining and implementing key performance indicators (KPIs) with the Program Team and the Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) Committee.

Thank you, Abie, for sharing your leadership journey with us. We wish you and the rest of Class 49 the best of luck in the program!
