Meet Lismawati "Lisma" Lapasi, curriculum and instruction student and this week's #UCFCCIEKnight.

Lisma explored different fields before her journey led her to UCF. She worked with multiple organizations in various roles, such as a TV production assistant in Washington, D.C. as part of the YSEALI Internship program and as a translations and communications manager at State University of Gorontalo in Indonesia – where she also taught English. But it was while working for the United Nations Girls' Education Initiative that Lisma's interest in international education sparked.

"I see a lot of inequities in education in Indonesia. Children from remote areas don't have the same opportunities as those who are in urban areas, let alone gifted education because these kinds of programs are expensive. There is little funding available to help economically disadvantaged students."

She hopes that her studies in global international and comparative education here at UCF will help her design and implement inclusive curriculum in her home country, Indonesia.

"My dream is to create and implement curriculum that is accommodating to all children by working together with organizations like the United Nations and the Ministry of Education of Indonesia."
