Ni Luh Ayu Sri Lestari (19) was born in Samuh (Karangasem), May 9th 2000. She is the first child of three siblings. Her father works as a private employee with an uncertain income stream, and her mother is a housewife. Her mother used to sell cakes and crackers, however, she could no longer afford to buy the raw materials to make them.
Ni Luh used to sell ceremony materials (canang) but when she graduated from elementary school, she could no longer do so because she needed to focus on her schooling. Despite their economic situation, her parents always tried to support her with her education. She is very grateful that her parents were able to send her to high school. She had applied for college but she was not able to pay the registration fee. A friend of the family told her about the Bali WISE program, and she joined the program to improve her skills in hospitality to apply for a job in this sector after graduating.
