About Me


Hello and Welcome!

My name is Stella Benedicta Laksono, or shortly called Stella. I am an automation engineer for almost 10 years academically and professionally with additional skills in digital and traditional illustrating, photography, English, Dutch and Russian; Additional interests in art, science, history, travel, and cheese; Additional minor flaws such as poor handwriting and music.

If you have similar taste to the things I mentioned above, we are automatically friends. 🙂

World is hard to live.

There are up and down achievements.

There are bitter and sweet memories.

While I am capable of thinking, remembering and creating, I want to achieve my life at the fullest. I decide to take the liberty of expressing emotional, mental and physical growth, by sharing personal thought in form of writing and art. They are mostly influenced by events and experiences I have encountered from different cultures, different places, different time, and different people.
