Indah will facilitate a memoir-writing workshop for Indonesian immigrant students aged 10-18 (middle and high school students) about “Growing Up Indonesian-Americans”. The participants will be 15 students in Philadelphia, who are 1st-½ generation Indonesian-Americans (born in Indonesia but arriving in the US between ages five and twelve). The writings will be published as a book, the first in a series of Indonesian-American books that Indah is working on.
