Elpi was born in Tukad Tiis Karangasem, East Bali, as the first. Her parents are farmers and casually take on work as day labourers. Since 6th grade Elpi helped her mother weaving mats to save some money for continuing her education. Elpi also wanted to work as a maid to get money but she was not allowed to do so. Her mother wanted Elpi to continue her education, however the family was short on money to support her financially.
That is why Elpi chose to join Bali WISE, aiming to get a better paid job in the field of hospitality. In the future she hopes to get a decent salary which will enable her to financially support her parents and make them proud of her.
