I grew up in Bogor, Indonesia, with a childhood dream to be a professional footballer. Well, I guess there was a specific period when almost all the kids on my block were having the same dream job as we often spent our afternoon by playing street soccer on the nearest outdoor tennis court.
Never lose hope in reading books and watching movies, later I found an excitement when I can have quality time in biography and true-story books/movies. I realize that learning from the past is a must to decide which pathway we have to enter.
Finished my high school in my home town before all the things in the universe that I did bring me back to Bandung, where I was born, to obtain the bachelor of economics from Universitas Padjadjaran in January 2014. Two years later I got a scholarship for a master of economics and business in Erasmus Universiteit Rotterdam that finished by July 2017. Currently works for investment banking company since March 2014.
Not only still love to hanging out for coffee with colleagues, I’m also pursuing a more healthy life by eating clean and going out cycling and running.
My name is Mufti Faisal Hakim; an economist by training and philosopher by heart. This is my story.
