Komang (19) was born in Pakisan, Buleleng on the 28th December 2000. Her father is a daily laborer with an income of around IDR1,000,000 per month, which goes towards supporting the education of Komang and her sibling. Her mother is unable to work since being diagnosed with kidney disease. Komang heard about the Bali WISE program from one of her friends who was a former Bali WISE student and was encouraged to apply. She will be far from her family while attending the program, but she says it will be worth it to gain an education that will help her provide for her family.
