"I applied to the scholarship. It's a year long process, interviews and all that. I finally got a visa interview... the US Embassy in Indonesia called me for the interview visa around late June."

"There's a difference between how the US Embassy treats Indonesian women and Indonesian men during the interview process."

"(Men) have to give them more documents, like more thorough documents to provide before they get to the interview part... It's really interesting because I don't have to do that as a woman. But the men have to do that. I don't know why. I wonder about that."

"I've been here as a student since last fall, almost a year now. I mean, everything went well. There's nothing like discrimination, I don't feel that."


"I kind of feel sometimes the faculty members are more forgiving towards international students... I don't really want that forgiving attitude."
