"I chose Goldsmiths because it is part of the University of London, which has good international recognition."

I chose Goldsmiths because it is part of the University of London, which I think has a good employment level and international recognition. I knew Goldsmiths from my media studies teacher when I was in college. He recommended it.

Before studying at Goldsmiths, I joined the Miss Indonesia pageant in 2007. After winning as Miss Indonesia Favourite and Miss Indonesia Java Island, I worked as a news anchor and host on two TV stations in Indonesia. Then, I decided to go to university in London. The course so far meets my expectations, and the College atmosphere is good because the teachers are helpful. Overall, Goldsmiths is my favourite place to study!

Nindya 

I'm Nindy, a third year BA Media and Communications student specialising in Creative Writing. I come from Jakarta, Indonesia. I like to think things through and I have a tendency to over-analyse everything that goes on in my life – not that there is much going on in my twenty-one years of existence actually.

When I'm not busy running The Leopard with my fellow editors, I'm usually preoccupied with planning my post-graduation life although from my experiences, Life always happens despite all the plans that have been made. Oh well…

I never give up crazy times with my friends – and by crazy, I mean starting a band. Like, a real band with guitars and…uhm, xylophone (our band is less avant-garde than it sounds). Food, coffee, and road trips are a few of my favourite things.  I love dogs and I like to talk – wait, am I supposed to write something smart here?

Oh, I also tweet and write a blog (blogs are like tweets, except longer). Read my blog here - http://nindysm.tumblr.com

I'm hooked on: 'How I Met Your Mother'. I can spend the whole weekend staying in just to watch the sitcom over and over and I really hope that someday, me and my friends will have that kind of friendship. 

If I had more time to myself I'd: Relax and sleep

I can do a really good impression of: Fran Drescher as Fran Fine in The Nanny. I can do that nasal voice thing!

My favourite place in the world is: My bedroom, such a sanctuary

"The best thing about my course is it triggers you not only to expand your perspective theoretically, but also introduces you into some very specified and technical knowledge that you will need in the professional field."

Journalism is both ideology and practice. The best thing about my course is it triggers you not only to expand your perspective theoretically, but also introduces you into some very specified and technical knowledge that you will need in the professional field.
 
I'm one of Goldsmiths' International Postgraduate Scholarship recipients. Before attending Goldsmiths, I worked as a journalist. The scholarship is clearly one of the most substantial stepping stones in my career as a journalist. Having been involved in the industry for four years, I won two journalism awards and worked in a multiplatform environment throughout various world-class media companies such as National Geographic and The Jakarta Post.
 
In my spare time, I contribute stuff for several publications, such as Rolling Stone magazine and local music websites in Indonesia. I co-founded an Indonesia-based music project called Sounds From The Corner (www.soundsfromthecorner.com). Goldsmiths is like the funky-friendly uncle you never had. Love the vibe.
