Indonesian Professional Fellows Recognized by the Minnesota State House
Our four Indonesian professional fellows were recognized on the floor of the Minnesota House of Representatives by ACYPL alumnus and State Representative Joe Hoppe (Australia 2004) on May 1. Mr. Denni Nurdwiansyah, Ms. Elisabet Jupesta, Mr. Hans Jong, and Ms. Lia Wulandari received a standing ovation during the House of Representatives floor session. They were accompanied by American mentor and ACYPL alumna Chas Anderson (Vietnam 2010). The group is participating in a 6-week fellowship program through the Young Southeast Asian Leaders Initiative (YSEALI) Professional Fellows Program.
“Our guests today, standing in front of you, are part of an inbound exchange group and are spending a month in Minnesota. Please join me members in giving them a warm Minnesota welcome.”
— State Representative Joe Hoppe (R-47B)
