Hello, my name is Muhammad Fadel. I’m 21 years old now. In 2017, I entered the University of Haluoleo, faculty of engineering, majoring in informatics engineering. I’ve been a member of Sakura Science Club when I was in senior high school after I joined one of the SSP programs, namely the Sakura Science High School program (SSHP) organized by Japan Science And Technology (JST) 9-15 April 2017. In this program we represent Indonesia with the total of 60 participants, consist of 50 students and 10 supervisor who come from all around Indonesia. The participants of the programs are not only from Indonesia but there are also several other countries like Thailand and Bangladesh.

In 2019, I was chosen as an SSC alumni coordinator for Indonesia and later I became one of the main coordinators for Sakura Science Alumni Association Indonesia (SAAI). The main task of coordinators is to gather alumni from SSP to join SAAI and establish connectivity so that in the future they could share their experiences and knowledge in the fields of science and technology.

With the formation of SAAI, alumni are expected to be able to communicate with each other. SAAI coordinators are also expected to produce alumni support activities such as international seminar events, where the speakers are both from Indonesia and Japan. SAAI can also hold reunions every year.

Our next goal is to publicize the programs within SSP and JST so that other communities can get to know us and take part in these programs.

In the future, I hope SAAI will be better and strengthen the relationship between Japan and Indonesia through Sakura Science, so we can work together, especially in the fields of science and technology to produce nation-wide candidates who are competent in those fields. Ultimately, we hope to build and maintain the connection and communication for all of the alumni in Indonesia.
