Based on her interest in social activism and gender issue, Felippa started working with WYDII when she was in college. Through participating in WYDII trainings and workshops, she gained a deeper understanding of policy and reality of women’s issue, and a reinvigorated passion to pursue a policy and activism career. Shortly after graduating with a degree in sociology in 2015 from UC Berkeley, Felippa continued that passion in the policy research center, Center for the Study of Child Care Employment (CSCCE). Prior to her work at CSCCE, she interned for the White House Initiative on Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders in Washington, D.C., and for the Indonesian National Commission for UNESCO in Jakarta, Indonesia. In 2017, she returned to Indonesia to further participate in the improvement and empowerment of Indonesian women and youth, through working full time at WYDII as a Program Associate.
