Born in a small town in East Java in October 20th 1991, she spent her childhood in the village. Dreamed about her passion to be a writer, she decided to read as many as book she can bought in 1999. She loved book especially novel, which was contain more illustration than its very own text. So in 2004 when she entered a junior high school, she began realize that she had a hidden talent: art. Since people around her praised her work on drawing objects, she started to sketch. Instead of studying math (which was a subject she hated so), she studied sketching from her art teacher privately afterschool. She also loved studying English: she loved everything to do with books. Sadly, her parents did not even notice.
In 2007, she graduated. Her parents suggested her to study in the best senior high school in the town. Then she did. Knowing the school had no place to study art, she felt dissappoint. Being threatened like nerd, she studied science reluctantly and burried her dreams to be both artist and writer. The only thing she kept struggle on was studdying language. She was good in Deutchsprache - Germany language, a subject that students had to take on their 2nd year. In 2009, she interested to study Japanese language, Nihongo. She met with Mr. Chok, the founder of APEC (Asia-Pacific Education Center) who tought five languange near her school. She took a Nihongo class with the sensei a year long. Had very rapid progress, the sensei told her that she had a good sense of learning language. Sadly, her parents did not allowed her to enrolled in literature majors.
After graduation in 2010, Monica passed the test to join Marine Engineering, Institut Teknologi Sepuluh Nopember, Surabaya. A month later, an announcement came from her email which told her that she also passed the test of Metrology & Instrumentation, Institut Teknologi Bandung. Didn't care what was the different, she made her choise to the second. She left her town to Bandung a month later.
Now she lives in Bandung, West Java- Indonesia, studying her very exhausting major which is mostly consist of physic and math: metrology. Never forget about her dreams, she keeps her faith that someday they will come true.
