Welcome to The Conundrum Journal!

The name is Andhyta Firselly Utami and—for efficiency reasons—people call me Afu. I’m @Afutami on Twitter, Instagram, YouTube, Snapchat, Ask.fm, and pretty much everything else. I also took http://afuta.me for the pun of it.

As per updating this page, I’m halfway through finishing my journey as a public policy student at one of the oldest universities in the world. Four years ago, I graduated bachelor of social science in International Relations  and have since attempted to make my dent in forests, energy, and climate change issues by doing research with an environmental think tank. I have also been blessed to be surrounded by capable and intelligent people, with whom I tried to promote the relevance of politics for young people, which started because we co-founded this organization beforehand. At the moment, I’m still trying to figure out what I want to do after grad school, including whether I should continue develop this web-based start-up, work with the organization that took me as an intern in the summer, or something completely unrelated (like, you know, joining a political party).

Generally I would say that the blog contains premature hypotheses explaining not only how the world has been but also subjective ideas and/or sentiments on what it should be. Throughout the pages, you will find a synthesis of personal experiences that are important to me, which may very reasonably not worth anything to you. Most of the time, they are amateur bits of propositions that try to make a point but never really did. For my take on more contemporary and real-world issues, go to this page instead.

Oh and I’m very much into writing/replying emails (as a consolation to letters). That said, send one to andhytafirselly@gmail.com whenever you feel like it because it will make my day.

Cheers!

  1. Hi Afu,
    Found this blog after I googled your name. Got your name from your article “We Should All be a Minority, At Least Temporarily” on Magdalene, that I had clicked from my Facebook feed. I thought I should let you know that I thoroughly enjoyed reading that article and a couple of your blogs (“I-used-my-official-working-hours-to-read kind of enjoyment).
    I am Enny… an American citizen who will always be an Indonesian, who has lived in the US for over 13 years. I currently reside in Washington DC. Just like how you offered those readers who somehow find their way to Cambridge, I’d like to offer you the same, if you’re in town, let me show you some Indonesian hospitality “ala” Washington DC… or should it be some Washington DC hospitality “ala” Indonesian.. :)

    Enny
