Pelajar Indonesia Berprestasi di Australia – Outstanding Indonesian Students in Australia

Australia menjadi pilihan utama pelajar Indonesia untuk melanjutkan studi. 17.500 lebih pelajar saat ini menjadi bukti besarnya minat itu. Selain jaraknya yang dianggap lebih dekat dibanding Eropa atau Amerika Serikat, kualitas pendidikan Negeri Koala ini juga dianggap lebih maju.

Perhimpunan Pelajar Indonesia Australia (PPIA) dengan sendirinya menjadi organisasi pelajar Indonesia di luar negeri yang terbesar. Sudah dua periode kepengurusan, Ketua PPIA Pusat menjadi Koordinator PPI Dunia. PPIA juga dinilai sebagai organisasi pelajar paling aktif berkegiatan. Jika dirunut secara cermat, hampir setiap minggu tanpa putus sepanjang tahun, selalu ada kegiatan PPIA di seluruh Australia, mulai dari kegiatan akademik, kesenian, sosial, hingga olah raga.

Jumlah yang besar itu tentu membuka peluang terciptanya berbagai prestasi yang mereka capai. OZIP edisi Mei ini coba menelisik berbagai capaian para pelajar Indonesia dari tujuh negara bagian. Bekerjasama dengan PPIA pusat, terpilihlah tujuh wakil pelajar yang dianggap berprestasi menonjol: Sofia Marwah Zainal (University of Canberra, ACT), Ricky Ariansyah Sanger (Charles Darwin University, NT), Achmad Room Fitrianto (Curtin University, WA), Muhammad Taufan (Flinders University, SA), Tri Mulyani Sunarharum (Queensland University of Technology, QLD), Ahmad Almaududy Amri (University of Wollongong, NSW), dan Puteri Komarudin (University of Melbourne, VIC).

Selain berprestasi secara akademik, mereka terlibat dalam kegiatan seni budaya bersama komunitas Indonesia dan lokal. Ricky Sanger misalnya, menjadi warga Indonesia pertama di Australia yang menjadi Resident Club DJ. Atau Sofia Marwah yang berhasil menciptakan sistem database bernama “GEECTIC” yang khusus dibuat untuk Kedutaan Brazil di Canberra.
Tentu masih banyak pelajar lain yang juga berprestasi tak kalah hebatnya. Tujuh wakil ini sekadar menegaskan bahwa masa depan Indonesia sangat cerah dan menjanjikan.
Selamat Hari Pendidikan dan Kebangkitan Nasional!
