Born in 1996, Dwiannisa (Annis) has spent most of her childhood in the Netherlands. As a graduate from political science, Annis has developed her interest in specific issues, such as environmental politics, political budgeting, and Latin-America studies. Her interest in the mentioned issues has inspired her to write her bachelor thesis on social movements during the post-military regime in Brazil regarding the construction of a mega-dam building.
Prior to joining Kiroyan Partners (KP) as an Analyst, Annis had concluded several notable internship experiences, including a 2-month internship at KP. Her first experience, which took place during her third year at the University of Indonesia, was as an intern to the House of Representative (DPR RI)’s Head of Commission IV overseeing Maritime, Fisheries, and Forestry. By handling weekly media monitoring key issues related to the agriculture, forestry, and marine sectors in Indonesia, Annis had the chance to exercise her research skill in providing useful data to members of the parliament.
Moreover, through an internship at Ruangguru, a start-up company specializing in education, Annis expanded her focus and professional networks in the education sector as she was responsible to establish and maintain relationships with external stakeholders of the company. She was also in charge of a free online training program for teachers to improve teaching competencies in 9 provinces of Indonesia, including Bali, Kalimantan and East Nusa Tenggara.
Her internship at KP then further refined her research ability, analytical thinking and writing, as well as knowledge of socio-political and business issues in Indonesia. She also had the opportunity to strengthen her knowledge and skills in strategic communications and media relations.
