An individual who has excellent logical, analytical, communication and interpersonal skills with exceptional ability to master new concepts. A fast learner with complex systems and a good team player, problem solver, and ability to work under tight deadlines and articulate technical problems in a concise and coherent manner.

Reifa started her journey with a scholarship from Sampoerna Foundation to Pearson College UWC in Canada where she received IB Diploma. She later then continued her study at Methodist University with Davis & MU Presidential Scholarships and graduated with Bachelor of Science in Computer I.T. with a concentration in Business Information System.
