Talitha is an example of grit and resilience. Growing up in a small industrial village in West Java, Indonesia, where her family could barely afford education for her, didn’t kill her motivation to learn. For her, education has always been her refuge. Because of her hard work and determination, she was granted different scholarships to finish her education. She was awarded a Bank Central Asia Scholarship to complete her undergraduate degree in English Literature from the Indonesia University of Education. A couple of years upon completing her BA, she was granted the prestigious Fulbright Scholarship to teach the Indonesian language at the University of Hawai’i at Manoa. She then continued her study in London in the following year. The Indonesian government fully funded her master's degree in Education and International Development at the University College London through the Indonesia Endowment Fund for Education Scholarship.
