About Gaia

When I started my first job in 2010, my Argentinian big boss give me this puzzled look as I introduced myself.  “What’s your name again?” So I said my name again, “it’s Nagea. But you can call me Gea if it’s easier for you.” He replied, “can I just call you Gia or Gaia?” I said no to him that time, but come to think of it, Gaia is actually not bad at all. It means just the same as my name, the Goddess of the Earth. This blog is about me, my clutters, and all sort of things I want to remember for a long time.

I am on my way to find myself and enjoying every single second of it with each unique emotion in it. The footprints are hopefuly well recorded here.

A corporate strategist, an aspiring entrepreneur, a chocaholic, a choral singer, an art & culture addict who is obsessed with ideas and creativity. In my spare time, I love to sing Eric Whitacre’s, read Ken Robinson’s, swim, and volunteer for the cause I’m most concern about: education in marginal and remote area.

Spent the first 16 years of my life in Padang, West Sumatra, where I, surprisingly, had A LOT of fun studying, solving math problem, playing music, and exploring art/sport/language/you name it. Moved to Bandung, West Java on my last year of high school – not quite an easy time I must say. Moved to Cilegon after graduating from an engineering school in Bandung. Cried like a baby on my first week living all by myself far far away from home and made HR provided company car to ride me home every weekend. Finally, January 1st 2012, moved to the only megapolitan in Indonesia: Jakarta. Where to go next? Let us find out!

Fast forward 4.5 years: currently living in Charlottesville, VA, USA, pursuing my MBA degree. And I miss my face in that profile picture: 22-year-old me on my first solo trip ever.

One thought on “About Gaia

  1. I think that what you said made a lot of sense. However, what about this? what if you typed a catchier post title? I mean, I don’t want to tell you how to run your blog, but suppose you added something to possibly get people’s attention? I mean About | Nagea’s Weblog is a little plain. You should look at Yahoo’s home page and watch how they create article titles to grab viewers interested. You might add a related video or a related picture or two to get people interested about everything’ve got to say. In my opinion, it would make your website a little livelier.
