Ariska is from Sidoarjo, East Java. She is the oldest child in her family. Her father passed away when she was one year old. Ariska and her mother rely on the income they get from selling traditional snacks in their own warung (shop). Due to the financial situation, her mother could only afford to pay the school tuition for one of her daughters. When Ariska was in her third grade of vocational school, her younger sister, who was in second grade of senior high school, had to stop her education. After graduating from vocational school, Ariska worked as administration staff for supporting her family. After working for a year, she resigned her employment contract and decided to join the Bali WISE program. She is hoping with more skills gained at Bali WISE, she will find a better job so that she can support her family even more.
