A Little Woman Whose Inspired by Jo "The Little Women"

At that time, I was just 9 years old. Sitting alone in my room, writing something in my diary. My Mom went in. Her face looked unhappy. "Kids. Writing a diary like a grown ups, huh!"

Not for long, my sister came in. She just stood there by the door for a while and said, "You will be become a writer, someday." Yes, I will, I said to myself.

From the first time I saw a cartoon series called "The Little Women", I know that "Jo" is the best character in that series. Jo is the second daughter of 4 from the Little's. Unlike her sisters, Jo has a strong character. She is very energetic and full of enthusiatism. Willing to sacrifice more than the other. And she wanted to become a famous writer. Although at the end, she didn't success of being a writer, she still put smile on her face and walk proudly.

Jo is not only want to be a writer, but she also dream and live like a writer. When I chose IPA in my high school, I still want to be a writer. Though I chose Medical Faculty as my first choise for college, I remembered Mira W. who is a doctor yet a famous writer. And when at the end, I didn't pass Medical and Psychology Faculty as my first and my second choice, I felt that it was my destiny to live my life as a Dutch Literature student.

And that’s true. I was living my dream. I fell in love everyday. And a year after my graduation day, I became an editor in one of the biggest publisher in Indonesia. God is good.

After seven years swimming in lake of books, I decided to focus on my children. But I never stop writing. In fact, I can write even more. Short stories, songs, and poetries. Just like Jo. She couldn't have kids, so she make her house as a place for foster kids. Lots of kids. With her husband, they grew up the kids with love, adventure, and laughter.
