There are many things that we can learn from those three heroines. Starting from the spirit of never giving up, making a real contribution to society, and continuing to pursue dreams and ideals. Being a woman, especially in Indonesia, is not an obstacle for us to make a real contribution to the people closest to us along with the community around us. Precisely by being a woman, be a woman who is empowered and works, especially for the development of ourselves and other communities. So, still, want to be lazy and lay down?
