Nasywa Feby Aulia
Senior High School Student
My name is Nasywa Feby Aulia. People know me as Nasywa. I was born and raised in Malang, East Java Indonesia. I am a Senior High School Student in MAN Insan Cendekia Serpong, South Tangerang, Banten, Indonesia.
I love to use my time helping other people and my focus issues are health and education. One of my hobbies includes writing about these two issues,particularly children’s and teenager’s health and education. I aspire to become a teacher and make this world better in any aspect.
What inspired you to enter the World NTD Day Story telling competition?
I was inspired by my dream of wanting to make this world better in any aspect, especially the health aspect. Every person has a chance of living a good life and this can be done through lifestyle improvement. Even though they are far away from me, they are my family who have a chance to live a healthy and safe life. So, I want to help them by making them aware of the importance of maintaining good health in order to prevent diseases such as NTDs, especially dengue fever.
Why does fighting NTDs matter to you?
Of course every person wants to enjoy their life. If someone is affected by NTDs, they are unable to enjoy this beautiful world fully. The welfare of human life comes from one’s health, despite the riches one might have. So, let’s fight NTDs and enjoy the world together!
How do you intend on continuing the fight against NTDs after this competition?
The fight against NTDs doesn’t end here. My next intention is to conduct preventive education, especially for dengue fever, which is a disease that often and easily occurs in the vicinity of where we live. I will do direct and indirect counseling in my home environment first. As for indirect counseling, I will do it through a question and answer session regarding the prevention of this outbreak through my social media channels. I hope that with these tips we can fight NTDs together.
What would be your request to your country’s leaders regarding fighting NTDs?
I would request my country leaders to pay attention to areas that are vulnerable to NTDs in my country, especially where dengue fever still occurs. With this special attention, I am hopeful that the disease can be prevented by the availability of adequate facilities and resources.
