Nora was born in Kendal, close to Semarang, Central Java, where her family moved to. She has four siblings and is the first child. She has a passion for hospitality, history, and art. Nora was an active student in her school, and won a Mandarin competition, achieving the third position and won an aerobics competition. After graduating, she wanted to continue her education but her parents could not afford it, since they also still had to pay the costs for the other siblings’ education. Her parents’ income is only around IDR 1.500.000 per month (approx. USD 110). So, Nora independently joined Bali WISE and works hard to gain more skills and knowledge.
