After finishing High School and working for a couple years, I joined the Brothers of Charity. In this institution I got to know more and more people with disabilities. When I was a candidate, the Brothers assigned me to the Institution for the Deaf in Wonosobo-Central Java-Indonesia. From there I started to learn many things about people with hearing impairment.

Before making my first profession, I was assigned to the boarding school with full responsibilities. I got to know the students more and more. I was with them during study time, meals, recreation, and even during shopping.< namespace="" prefix="o" ns="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" xml="true">
