Jessica Hendrawidjaja: Indonesia

Jessica Hendrawidjaja

Jessica Hendrawidjaja is very involved on campus.

Jessica Hendrawidjaja is from Indonesia and is majoring in Business. Her goal is to transfer to the University of Pennsylvania in the fall of 2010.

"When I first came to GRCC, I thought I made a mistake because all my friends went to colleges closer to Seattle. However, soon I realized that GRCC was the perfect place for me.  I have improved a lot because I have been given so many opportunities to grow.  The advisors, staff and teachers all encourage me to be the best I can be. I am very grateful to them."

Jessica is involved in many activities on campus. She is an International Student Ambassador, she's a member of the Resident Council for Campus Corner Apartments (CCA), and she's an economics tutor.

As an International Student Ambassador, she helps to organize events for incoming international students such as orientation, CORE, the Seattle Trip, Ice Cream socials and more.

Jessica lives at CCA.  "It is a really great experience!  There are a lot of events, friends and opportunities for leadership."

Jessica encourages international students to get involved on campus. "Don't be afraid to open yourself up to the opportunities around you.  There's a lot if you look carefully. There's something for everyone. Don't get discouraged if you don't get the first job you apply for. There are others on campus."
