Dorotea is from Detusoko, Flores. Her parents are farmers. After having graduated from senior high school, she wanted to go to university like her friends, but with an income of only IDR 500,000 per month (approx. USD 36), her parents could not afford that. Dorotea’s sister is still studying in a university, so her parents asked Dorotea to wait for her sister to finish. Dorotea never gave up her dream of continuing her education, so she joined Bali WISE and can now enjoy developing new skills without financially burdening her parents with that.
