Hello Everyone! Greetings from greatest archipelago country Indonesia!
Let me introduce myself first, my name is Avinia Ismiyati from Makassar Indonesia, you can call me Avi. Currently, I am working in Occupational Health and Safety Technical Service Unit, Indonesia Ministry of Manpower.
I am extremely happy that I am selected as fellows in YSEALI Professional Fellows Program (Legislative Process and Givernance) and will spend about 5 weeks in US! Moreover, I will be placed in Baltimore City, Maryland, a waterfront city which similar with Makassar Indonesia. In this city I would like to explore about the implementation of Occupational Health and Safety in US, especially in Baltimore city.
My focus is about Occupational health and safety in Maritime Industry. Since Baltimore City is one of the Port City, it will be easier for me to gain many information about Occupational health and safety that could be implemented in my Home Country, in my city Makassar.
By joining this fellowship, I wish I could meet many amazing people from ASEAN and exchanging cultures. Hopefully we can create initiatives as many as possible for our community. For ASEAN and for The World.
P.S I am writing this while waiting for flight to US with my Indonesian fellows. See you soon!
