MD44 Odina

Victim of 2005 Nias Island earthquake.

Dina is the oldest of 5 children (3 boys and 2 girls). Her parents are very poor and from a remote area of Nias, so they cannot send her to High School. She wants to study music at university to be a teacher.

Odina says: " I have a longing to study at Medan State University. The reason I chose the campus is because the quality of the campus has been recognised by Negara. I want to help my family and my younger sibling who is still not yet at school and all my younger siblings who I really love and are dear to me".

Dina has 50% sponsorship

Hobby - volleyball, favourite colour - yellow, favourite foods - fried rice and chicken
