----------------------------------

Benjamin Owens was born in London, England and moved to Sydney, Australia, before adapting to life in Jakarta, Indonesia. He first got his physics degree from Macquarie University in Sydney, and has since developed a passion in science. With Benjamin’s experience in three different countries, his love for local city culture developed, and he yearns to see Indonesia move forward in their new identity as an empowered youth. Additionally, Benjamin is also involved with various social projects such as investing in youths, one of them being a kids' home in Bali, and to date, has been a youth leader for ten years, hence why he chose to teach in Sekolah Pelita Harapan Lippo Village, as a way to further connect to students and young people.
