My name is Qisthia Kattania and I'm an Indonesian maker. Apart from making, I like technology and education because both amplify our possibilities in creating.
These past few years I've made things from Android apps to paper crafts, consumer product concept to electronic project, IT start up to fabric drawing, and as always, writings.
Some of the things I make involve IT, and though it is a male-dominated field, I'm proud to say that I'm a woman.

At the end of our learning, the mentors and my teammates gave me a really good review that I came out as a Top 5 Graduate and a certified Junior Android Engineer.
