"My daughter is a teenager and very supportive of her mother's career. So is the husband, who constantly keeps me spirited though my day off to keep working, "said Ituk, who's hobby was diving.

"But for me, the family remains number one. If there is little time for my family try to get together. Includes keeping in touch with the extended family. Although just a meal together, but for me is very important, "said the woman who graduated from Universitas Surabaya's Faculty of Economy.

Highlighting gender equality that Raden Ajeng Kartini echoed in her time, Ituk said, Kartini Day celebration becomes a momentum for women to pursue any aspirations as high as anything. Ituk itself works according to her passion, so wherever she works as long as it is a passion, so it's fun.
