Deana was born and grew up in Cileunyi close to Bandung, West Java. After graduating from senior high school, Deana wanted to go to university, but her parents were not able to financially support her. Her father’s monthly income was around IDR 2,000,000 (approx. USD 152) but since her parents got divorced, her father is jobless and Deana lives with her grandmother. She has been working as part-time admin in Butik Aprilia, but her salary was not enough. So she decided to quit and joined Bali WISE instead, because she believes that she can do better.
