Nanda started her career in the broadcast industry as a radio announcer and producer in a state-owned radio station and as a news reporter at a television news channel. After five years of working in the media, Nanda made a jump into the development sector by joining several NGOs and development projects such as WWF Indonesia, SOS Children’s Villages, ASEAN Foundation, USAID Sustainable Ecosystems Advanced (SEA) Project, ZSL Indonesia, and UNICEF Indonesia.
Her experience has not only nurtured her to become an avid campaigner in a multicultural landscape, but also a passionate trainer who often shared experience in public speaking, media relation, and strategic communications for NGOs.
