Amank is an Accounting Assistant. He first joined YCM in 2008, and took on accounting responsibilities in 2010 after being supported by YCM to undertake relevant external courses which he was interested in. Amank’s role includes recording daily costs, balancing monthly expenses, and coordinating the payment of school fees and sponsorship. He also purchases school resources when necessary – anything from rice to soap to a new toilet door.

He has gained “everything” from attending YCM. Throughout elementary school, junior high school, and senior high school, he had no confidence in speaking English, and lacked clear goals. YCM provided him with an environment to learn such skills and motivation in a practical way. “I also learned life lessons here,” he says.

Amank is currently undertaking another Accounting qualification at college in addition to his work and study at YCM; he hopes to continue working in the field in the future. He also aspires to manage a restaurant business in Bogor, inspired by his time washing dishes in a restaurant, and the desire to advance himself by using his financial skills in that setting.
