Pandu –I think that the pandemic that is now happening around the world, is the very first crisis faced by Indonesia’s young generation. Lot of young people didn’t experience the economic crisis in 2008 nor in 1998. And the recent crisis is very different from those two crises.
However, I believe that our true character will come up when we’re facing a crisis. There will be those who fight to win, also there will be those who just stay still. Therefore, every problem brings a very valuable life lesson.
I must say that Indonesia’s young generation is very creative, adaptive and responsive in facing this pandemic. I see that there are still many young people who are very passionate and continue to give their best efforts to advance the country.
Happy Youth Pledge Day. Let’s continue to work, to collaborate with each other, and be loyal to our values of diversity.
