Ariani was born and grew up in Karangasem, East Bali, and has two siblings, as well as three step siblings. Her parents work as farmers with a very limited income of only IDR 400,000 per month (approx. USD 30). With that little money, it was impossible for them to even afford high school. But Ariani was lucky! She stayed with her older sister who could help her to pay the school fees, and made it possible for her to attend a hospitality-focused high school in Amlapura. Ariani already received training in housekeeping at Rama Candidasa Resort and in Food & Beverage Service at The Bali Shangrila Beach & Club. She is a very ambitious young woman and wanted to learn and train as much as she could. So, after having graduated, Ariani was looking for scholarships to continue her education. The Bali WISE program was the perfect match and we are sure she will successfully make her way!
