She has been Yuk Gresik (Tourism Ambassador) 2017 and Raki of East Java 2018. She has also been Gresik Police Resort (Polres) Ambassador in 2019 on Tuesday, April 9, 2019.
Aside from being ambassadors for various activities, Dara was also 2014 East Java Flag Lifting Force (Paskibra) representing Gresik Regency. In addition to being active in activities outside the university, Dara also participated actively in university activities, such as in Garuda Sakti UNAIR and UNAIR Student Executive Body (BEM).
“Initially I joined Paskibra in East Java Province in 2014. When I was in college, I joined Gresik Cak Yuk in 2017. Alhamdulillah I became the best and became the representative of Gresik to Raka Raki, East Java,” she said.
Dara shared some tips for becoming an ambassador in an activity, from how to speak in public and how to manage time between studies and organizations, to UNAIR NEWS team.
“We must remember our main obligation as students. No matter how busy, our studies must be prioritized. Overlapping schedule is normal. If we follow a lot of activities, how we manage time is the key, “said Dara.
It does not mean that everything goes according to plan, she has also failed in competitions she joined. However, strong determination brings perseverance.
“I realize that it still depends on our fortune. I have been disappointed and worse. Maybe that hasn’t been my lucky time. Because I was interested and curious about that field, I was even more enthusiastic about participating in each event. Alhamdulillah, the more time passes, the more I understand that it might be my passion, ” she added. (*)
