Narendra Hutomo

Hi everyone! I’m Narendra, you can call me Rendra for short. I’m an undergraduate journalism student on my third year from Multimedia Nusantara University. I’m the leader of the Youth News Room, so I’ll be the one responsible for organising and running the whole show + a little editing of your work. Me and 3 others was at last years World Press Freedom Day in Finland.

I don’t have any journalism-related work yet apart from being a freelance contributor for Kompas.com at last year’s WPFD, but currently I’m working as the head music director of my uni’s community radio, UMN Radio (you can listen to it at radio.umn.ac.id :D) . Basically I handle all things music related…

Short description of me: I’m a happy go lucky person who’s really into music (both listening and playing it, and massive Brit-pop fan), traveling, football (I support Manchester City), going out to pubs and have drinks, eat (who doesn’t?), likes to have lots of fun, talking and being cynical about almost anything, and very open to trying and talking about anything.

Regards, N.
