 Jakarta - Jogjakarta - Bali 

 3 January 2016 

  • Off to a great start getting to know our peers in Indonesia as part of USA-Indonesia Deaf Youth Leadership, Cultural Exchange, & Human Rights Program. Amazing people who are rising leaders in their community! We explored Jakarta and ate delicious food at Deaf Indonesian family home. Annisa - terima kasih! by Shazia Siddiqi

 4 January 2016 

Over tea at the Ambassador’s Residence, the Acting Ambassador, Brian McFeeters, and his wonderful staff welcomed 10 young Deaf Americans and their eight Indonesian counterparts participating in the first deaf exchange conducted by Embassy Jakarta.

Next, Surya and I took them to Jakarta Old Town (in Indonesia language : Kota Tua) by riding TransJakarta bus which was a fun experience. American delegations enjoyed learning BISINDO and shared lots of laughter! Jakarta History Museum was housed on the original town hall of 17th-century Batavia, the capital of Dutch East Indies and centre of the Asian spice trade. 
The most valuable lesson I got 
is helping Allie as a vegetarian to choose her best food such as no fish, no mix vegetable with meat :) and recommending Americans to not eat at street vendor for avoiding stomach problem as new strangers who stay at Jakarta for a few days .

 5 January 2016 

We had an informative morning meeting and sharing with the Director of Social Rehabilitation for People with Disabilities (Mr. Nahar) - an exceptional human being who sincerely cares about disability/Deaf issues.

We discussed about social services for 
the Deaf, disability laws, early intervention, 
and bilingual education. All people, regardless 
of disability, have dreams and wishes to be treated 
as equal productive members of society

  • We traveled to the famous Fingertalk cafe. The cafe employees are all Deaf who do a variety of jobs from cooking, hosting and creating goods to sell that showcase the talents of people with disabilities. Over 50 members of the Deaf community came to join us at the cafe to feast and talk with us. It was an amazing day. A humbling day. An extraordinary day. Words cannot describe how amazing it was for all of us. by Michelle
  • Wow! I am just humbled at today's experience in Indonesia. We went to the Finger Talk Café which is run by all Deaf, Hard of Hearing, and Deaf-blind people. Food was delicious, hospitality was awesome, and we Americans are superstars. I have never had so many photo requests in all of my life. Wow! by Alesia Allen 

 6 January 2016 
It was a rare opportunity and honor to have the Minister of Social Affairs (akin to US Secretary of Health and Human Services) come to our seminar which was attended by over 250 people. Our workshops about education and interpreting were jam-packed with many eager to learn best practices in teaching Deaf children and how to use and train interpreters. Excellent day!

We met the staff of The Little Hijabi school,
the only bilingual school for the Deaf in Indonesia.
They operate with limited funds with whatever parents can 
give and struggle to sustain a center for 25 children. 
The staff is doing amazing work from 
the goodness of their hearts!
Same as usually, Surya and I were a great team
in guiding Americans. We took them to 
restaurant of Garuda which located in Jl. Hayam Wuruk.
They really enjoyed PADANG (well known as Minangkabau) food!
There were satay, perked (wrecked potato), 
tahu, tempe, toge, RENDANG <3 etc

 7 January 2016 

We went to the US Embassy in Jakarta to meet with amazing people from Education USA, USAID and Regional English Language Office (RELO) to hear about the work they do and ways they can collaborate with the Deaf community in Indonesia to improve access to resources and information for higher education and other programs [abroad].

Below this photo described what a down-to-earth woman is! 
She hugged me because she was more feeling regret 
that I couldn't join next trip to Jogjakarta.

 8 - 9 January 2016  
Even though I didn't follow them to continue trip to Jogjakarta, I am sure they enjoyed exploring the Indonesia historical place through magic photos which they chose for promoting Indonesia on their own social media
  • "One of my favorite photos from the entire trip so far with Eric surprising me in this photo that was supposed to be solo. Here, we are at one of the most ancient mosques in Yogyakarta with five stairways representing the five pillars of Islam." by Josh

  • Kuda Lumping is a traditional form of performing arts in Indonesia, using a flat bamboo-woven horse to tell many different stories through dance. I saw a wonderful performance by a deaf theater group in Yogyakarta and was honored to be gifted with a real, original Kuda horse! I named the horse Yogyakarta after the city he is from (Jogja for short). I brought him back to the United States as a cultural exchange diplomat representing the very finest of Indonesian performing arts. Welcome to Washington DC, Jogya! by Leah Katz

Today was such a beautiful day. We went to the Deaf village in Bengkala. There was many families who bear deaf children generation after generation. However, most have had no access to formal education and many work as farmers or woodcutters. They have a brand of sign language that is both unique and incomprehensible-at least to those outside the community. They were happy to meet and eat and do art projects with us and we with them, especially the five deaf children at a local school. We wanted them to realize what education can achieve for their deaf sons and daughters. That barriers could be broken through continuous study. Moreso than that we tried to build relationships in such a short amount of time. It was heartbreaking and yet inspiring as well. Though they haven't got what we have, they have something we really need and that's a strong community. We need to be neighbors to each other despite our differences, despite our prejudices. We need to meet each other where we are and hope for the best. Bengkala for many is just a side show. A local Balinese attraction. For us it was an attempt at an investment in the future of its small population of deaf youth. Though we donated some resources, we realize that there is so much more they need. Deaf teachers to volunteer, educational/curricular resources, money for lunch beyond next year when what we gave runs out. If you are interested in making an investment or learning more, let me know. I'll connect you with a credible and worthy source. (a true written by Michelle)

 All family of Americans's worried when there was news of Jakarta got bombed! 
"Hi everyone, we are currently in Bali where we have visited 4 deaf schools and have met with the deaf community here. Bali is about 2 hours flight from Jakarta, which is on the Java island. We are all safe and thank you for your messages of concern. Here is a picture of us with a group from one of the schools yesterday." by Leah Katz

"Thanks for all your concern! All delegates of USA-Indonesia Deaf Youth Leadership program are fine and safe in Bali. We just wrapped up our last day today with visiting several Deaf schools and Deaf community. It has been very inspiring and awesome sharing so much of our experiences and knowledge with each other. Here is a picture of the Deaf schools we visited in Bali. More to come soon!"
 14 January 2016 

We had a ton of fun at Lumina's Sushrusa School for the Deaf in Bali. It was a great morning with the cute kids. The Deaf Youth Leaders had he opportunity to play with the kids and educate parents on how best to support deaf children and set them on the path to success. It was important that parents and teachers were exposed to Deaf role models so they can create dreams for their children that exceed society's expectations for them.

After teaching time, I played joking with an American guy, then I started facing the most scared arguement with him on the way back to hotel. He didn't accept my own perspective which in his perspective is satirise LGBT - Lesbian Gay Bixesexual Transgender. Actually, I truly never heard explanation or talked about LGBT before. However, I had to understand what was going on his mind towards LGBT. Again, he made me shock that he was a gay who acts and has fashion style like gentleman (awkward moment). Before we going for a walk to different place, he was let me for thinking like a wise thinker.
"Among American men, he was coming first when I needed urgent help. I felt more close with him. It would be not unfair for changing good respond  become bad response if I have known his true identity already" in my mind when I explored beaches with a few friends
On the way back hotel for spending togetherness by watching sunset was a beautiful evening to say see you later. I felt so grateful that I had a new perspective. I continued keeping my faith as Muslim and our friendship with LGBT-ers at the same time as long as we together would not bothering our identity each other.

Today, we fly out from Jakarta to Japan for the first leg of our journey home. It has been an incredible trip, with an amazing delegation from both USA and Indonesia. I have greatly, deeply appreciated the opportunity to understand Indonesia on a deeper level and the deaf community's issues here at the same time. Every member of the delegation has so much to offer and I look forward to welcoming my Indonesia peers to the United States in a few more months! (Americans)
Our friendship will stronger through hand-writing 
 with full of heart, In Shaa Allah
We Indonesians Deaf are ready 
for growing up to become better leaders

From Washington to New York

 6 June 2016 

We visited to the first place is the U.S. Department State for meet Judith Heuman. She is a famous leader in the disability community. She has been appointed Special Advisor for International Disability Rights at the U.S. Department of State. She also has served for 4 years as the first adviser on disability and development at World Bank. 
Mostly in our conversation, she gave us any more specific and logic solution, such as she made sure that I as a chairwoman of disability youth community have known about new updated CRPD issue already.
Next, we visited National Association of the the Deaf (NAD) and met Chief Executive Officer of NAD, Howard Rosenblum. We learned a lot of knowledge about history and values of NAD and its deaf community in the US, as well as deaf gain lesson by Dr. Dirksen Bauman from Gallaudet University.

  • #ramadanmubarak While a certain someone is making history tonight, I was at my parents' house showing our Indonesia deaf youth leaders the American suburbia (this IS a cultural exchange program, after all). We waited until 8:34 for the sun to go down for our and then feasted on barbecued chicken, corn on the cob with butter, rolls, salad, and had an apple pie with vanilla ice cream for dessert. I showed the Christian, Hindu, and Muslim delegates our Hanukkah menorah and a wine cup. My parents talked about how happy they are to receive the Indonesia delegation at our family house and how proud they are of their leadership in Indonesia. On the way back to DC, I realized that our middle-class hometown had been identified as the most ethno-racially diverse in the United States. I definitely feel good about the future of the United States and about the future of Indonesia, as well. What a special memory that I will treasure forever! by Leah Katz  

 Leah and her family were warmly welcome us! 
 dessert : apple pie with ice cream and fruits

 I was not liking it for first time, 
 but for now, I like :)

We truly enthusiasted visiting to NASA's Goddard Space Flight Centre.

  • 4 from 15 Deaf workers in NASA we met
  • The best part of their job is working with hearing fellow engineers to solve problems as a team
  • The keywords are hardworking and showing their skills 

Obviously, I was feeling so honorable while the Indonesia Ambassador, Mr. Budi Bowoleksono acknowledged that he is a good friend of my uncle Henki's. Not only him, I was also proudly delivering a box of Luwak coffee of aunt's for her brother in law, Mr. Arto Suryodipuro (co-Indonesia Ambassador).

We visited to American University - where Leah received her master degree to meeting with Dr.Derrick Coburn and Dr.David Morrisey at Institute on Disability and Public Policy's office. It's the learning centre which offered master degree program about Disability and Public Policy.

With founding support from the Nippon Foundation, the International on Disability and Public Policy contributes to the vision of an inclusive, barrier free and rights based global society and pioneered the world's first virtual master's degree program in disability policy, offered by American University's School of International Service.

Session of Question-Answer 
  • I asked a question to Dr David "How I raise awareness of people with disability to more active?"
  • He responded "The average of youth disability are still in the growth of confidence, so we should motivate them to do something. Last but no least, we should ask them (friend of the community) for cooperation, we would result in many benefits"

We visited to US Agency of International Development (USAID) where Josh works. We met a partner of Josh's, called Leah Maxson. She serves as a Democracy Fellow for Disability Rights. She works to advance inclusive development programs and practices within the Agency and its field missions. She has experience as a community organiser in school for the Deaf in Africa, Asia and America Latin.
  • USAID works for ending global poverty and providing the resilience and democratic society to maximize their potential. 
  • Indonesia delegations learned about how to connect with USAID in Indonesia and the financial aid of the U.S. foreign for advancing the importance of Deaf and improving the lives of the developing country.
I hope I will be part of this in the future aamiin

Honestly, entering the White House is not very easy as you think. However, the delegations and I could enter the White House easily because of there was a woman of our delegations who worked as the Receptionist of The U.S. (ROTUS). Thank you Leah for hosting us at the East Wing Room which Michelle Obama works and explaining what's story behind a few rooms and paintings.
 After passing three inspection area,
 we were succeed to enter inside.
Green room served as 
President Thomas Jefferson's dinning room.
Red room has been used as a music room,
a first's lady's sitting room and a setting 
for small diners and receptionist

Next, we had our excellent discussion with the White House policy staffs and advisors of Disability and Security, Maria Town (a brilliant woman with disability in walking balance). In our discussion, we talked about studying in the U.S , the status of disability's rights in the U.S. and Indonesia, and the impact of the arts on the Deaf community and other disability.

In the fact, many people with disabilities who can work 
in the White House. Due of the reason, 
the U.S. has advanced and equipped accessibility 
of the needs of the people with disabilities.

We were invited by the Indonesia Ambassador to breakfasting at Embassy Republic of Indonesia Residence which located in 2700 Tilden Street, NW Washington D.C. 2210We Indonesians were also glad to answer any questions of important government officials or Indonesian young diploma's which related with sign languageAn incredible opportunity to share the Deaf leaders' mission of equal access for the Deaf!

Dr. Madan Vasisha was lead Grassroots Leadership workshop.We learnt that we must be think harderabout how to do something in specifically.
We had a tour at the Smithsonian Museums which was lead by Chanel.Smithsonian National Museums were accessible for Deaf and wheelchair user. Unfortunately, I'm not sure about how to access for blind yet.

The group of Deaf Indonesian delegates visited a mosque in Virginia that hosts a Deaf Muslim chapter. The organization Global Deaf Muslim makes the religion more accessible to Deaf Muslims around the world and hosts international conferences on Deaf people in Islam. The organization was founded right here in the United States. They were generous hosts in welcoming us for an iftar, a meal to break the Ramadan fast at the end of the day.
A president of Global Deaf Muslim, Mr. Nashiru said that he has a plan for visiting Indonesia to spread the awareness 
about the importance of Islam education access for Deaf.

Riri and I were so glad to get new Muslim friends

In weekend, we had free time for exploring to Thomas Jefferson memorial, Arlington National Cemetery to see J.F. Kennedy funeral and Alexandria Old Town. Obviously, I got a new experience! While an American hearing staff - Joan Stone was driving, I was looking forward information about direction way from (handphone) maps by using hand-signing.

  • Most prominent are the words which are inscribed in a frieze below the dome: "I have sworn upon the altar of God eternal hostility against every form of tyranny over the mind of man."  
  • On the three panels of the interior wall are excerpts from the Declaration of Independence,an excerpt from "A Bill for Establishing Religious Freedom", the quotes from multiple sources and the inscription which redacted and excerpted from a letter to Samuel Kercheval.

    We Indonesians experienced for attending to the Gay Pride around Dupont Circle , Washington DC for very first time. One hour later, some more Indonesian delegations chose to go dorm because they were tired enough. Three left! Actually, I as a Eastern and Muslim person, I'm not allowed to following this. I was think if I could keep my culture, it would never deprave my faith. So, I continued watching.  

    When a few friends was ignore(maybe didn't realize too) that I haven't eaten since morning, a gay man (even though new friend) was  accompanying me to the market for buying any food <3  

    Next, we sat down at reserved seats to watch ASL SLAM! It's a space for Deaf performing artists to share poetry and storytelling in American Sign Language. We laughed out loud along night.

    • "I write in appreciation of Dr Asiah who directed the exchange program of young deaf leaders in the United States and Indonesia. Asiah picked a wonderful group of delegates and we all learned so much from each other. She arranged many high-level meetings with government officials in both countries including ambassadors and high-ranking bureaucrats. She also introduced us to many people at the United Nations. She made these meetings happen so that we could share our stories with them and push for the full and equal inclusion of deaf people in society. Asiah was very aware of her status as a hearing individual and always made sure that we took the lead in these meetings. " by Michael Stein
