My name is Hartato, and I am from a region in West Java known as Indramayu. Now I live in Kampung Rawa Simpruk RT 05 RW 10 Kabupaten Lama Jakarta Selatan. My dad works as a Bajaj driver and my mom is a housewife. I am the 2nd child of 4 in my family. My eldest brother already has his own family. My two younger siblings are currently in the 2nd grade in a SD Negri and also 2 years of age respectively.
In my weekends, I sell Bak Pao to my neighbors because and use the money to help my parents and myself to travel to school. My hobby is to play chess because I believe it can help me learn to get out of a current problem whilst not stumbling in another problem by doing so. In my family, the most important thing is to love and support each other although sometimes my parents do have conflicts. One day, I dream of opening my own bakery to then support myself. I also wish by doing this I can decrease the amount of people that are living in unemployment, especially in my neighborhood. I am also very grateful that my family is supportive of my dream and is enthusiastic to help me achieve it.
When I graduated from middle school, my parents were not able to support the cost to let me continue to high school so I had to drop out. Although this happened, I did not lose hope because I believed that getting proper education is a strong foundation to have a proper life. One day, one of my friends told me about Rumah Belajar and that I could study there for a price that is far less than most. The following day I enrolled there straight away and am enjoying every minute I am in Rumah Belajar.
