WELCOME BACK Readers!
Ever wonder what the challenges are behind running one of the largest private, international schools in Southeast Asia? And, on top of that, running it as a non-profit organization? In Issue 203, we sit down with Jakarta Intercultural School’s new Head of School Tarek Razik who helps demystify the business behind running these types of schools as well as get to know more about his leadership style and philosophy behind education. It is an in- depth exclusive, one you won’t find anywhere else in Indonesia. We also take a look at Krakatau through the eyes of adventure travel writer Terry Donohue, who explains the history and geological formations of the small band of islands to the west of Java. Another new contributing writer Ahda Ismail shows us the natural power in using locally made, ecologically viable, health and beauty products. Kenneth Yeung is back with an explosive one-on-one with no other than David Bond. Whatever you think of him or his tactics, this will be an eye-opening experience for anyone who ever wondered about the power of self-promotion online. We hope that you enjoy this issue as it could be one of our most powerful yet in terms of content and style. Until next time,
