Sharon Kurniawan

Sharon Kurniawan
Hometown: Indonesia
Major: Broadcast Journalism
Interests: Performing, traveling and food tasting

Sharon began studying at Parkland College in spring 2012 and then became a member of Parkland student government the following semester. She is majoring in broadcast journalism because she wants to be a news anchor or work in the media or entertainment industry (she enjoys performing). 
She loves studying at Parkland, and although it was a last minute decision for her to choose the college, “it turned out to be the best decision ever,” she said. “I have gained a general knowledge of basic communication, economy, and US government, and I have learned more English vocabulary.” Her Communication major will help her improve her skills with knowledge that she can apply in the future.
Sharon’s biggest dream is to help people who are in need out of her own earnings, especially children. That is why she works hard to make her dream come true.
When she finishes her Parkland studies, she plans to transfer to the UIUC and take Media as a major.
