Prestige 40 under 40

October 18, 2015

When you get Prestige Indonesia October edition, turn to page 135 and look who's there :))

I remember when I was still in college whenever I browsed magazines, especially business magazines, my favorite section was the short profile about any accomplished public figures. I vowed to myself that one day I will be featured in magazines, acknowledging my accomplishment. In my mind at that time, being featured in magazine is a sign that I have made it. That I have done something worth noticing.

Ever since I started Female Daily in 2015, I get featured quite a lot, Alhamdulillah. In magazines, newspapers, tabloid, radio even TV.  I have to appreciate and thank my media friends who have played a big part in bringing Female Daily out there. Can't never thank them enough. I remember my first media feature was VOA that they air through a local radio. My first magazine feature was by Femina Magazine. I remember I was around 4 months pregnant at that time and still live in St. Louis. Oki took the picture of me wearing a green corduroy blazer :).

In the early days, the write up was more about me as a blogger or about Female Daily as a blog and as a community. It's amazing how far we have grown because now whenever I am (or Affi) being featured, it's about us being an entrepreneur and Female Daily as a media/platform/business. 

Last year, Affi, Nopai and I was discussing about our professional & personal plans and dreams for the next 5 years. One of the things I told them was I wanted to be listed in business magazines as 40 under 40 entrepreneurs to watch for or any similar listing type of article. I also told them that I want Female Daily or us to be on the cover of business magazine (it reminds me about this post). 

Granted I'm not on the cover yet and Prestige is not a business magazine. But hey, baby step :). 

Thank you for giving me the honor to be included in your 40 under 40 Nations' Young Movers & Shakers, Prestige Indonesia.
