Ariani, the Woman behind the Wheels
Ariani is a caring and powerful woman with a big heart and exotic eyes. She began working with me in 2011 to further develop Tulisan’s vision and build a healthy production infrastructure.
Her passion for the performing arts has given her an enduring appreciation for classical music and the piano. When Ariani turned 18, she started giving private piano lessons at the Yayasan Pendidikan Musik, a highly regarded music school in Jakarta. Teaching requires compassion and determination, two qualities Ariani embodies. But, it was her exceptional analytical and math skills that lead her to major in Computer Science at Binus University. This field of study allowed her to delve into the world of hard coding and logic.
Ariani’s rare skill set, characterized by a seamless blend of the arts and applied science, has made her an invaluable asset at Tulisan. As head of our research and development department she guides our team with compassion and discipline.
For her, it has always been a priority to listen to her team members in order to lead effectively. The biggest joy in her work comes from having the freedom to express herself while upholding the strong fundamental values of our company’s work ethic.
To date, one of Ariani’s proudest achievements was leading KDM for the Home – a manufacturing program for Tulisan’s Home Collection in conjunction with Kampus Diakonia Modern (KDM), a non-profit organization which rescues children from the streets of Jakarta. The goal of this initiative was to create a sustainable program aimed at generating fair employment opportunities for women and young people who live in the surrounding rural areas.
Over a period of several months Tulisan team members trained participants from KDM until they mastered the fine artisanal skills, discipline, and self confidence needed to sustain a business. Tulisan constructed a work area for the students to practice their craft.
Ariani’s believes that the secret to happiness is working with passion. She hopes that one day she will be able to incorporate her talent for the performing arts into her work at Tulisan.
