Featured journalist: Arzia Tivany Wargadiredja

Feb 24, 2016

Today's spotlight falls on Arzia Tivany Wargadiredja, a field producer with CNN Indonesia covering environment, arts and entertainment, and politics there. Wargadiredja got her start as an intern at The Jakarta Post and stuck with journalism because "nobody wants to see me wearing heels and suit in Barclays." When she's not at her computer, she's most likely to be in "BED!" and offers this advice to aspiring journalists: "Eat while you can! That's what my boss previously in Reuters told me after his 16 years of experience as a journo in 4 continents." Stop by her Muck Rack portfolio for some of her work, starting with "Indonesian president rebukes minister" over his crackdown on ride-hailing services like Uber and Go-Jek, which triggered outrage on social media in a country where public transport options are limited.

Remember: If you also want to be featured here, you should 1) set up your own journalist portfolio 2) get verified and 3) let us know by emailing Kirsten.
