My name is Afifah Mu'minah. Please note that my name has apostrophe between "U" and "M." My second name is not my sure name. It is not common for Indonesian to have a sure name, especially in Sunda. I was born on 14th January 1989. Yes! 1989, Taylor Swift's favorite year. I am the second child in the family. You know that stereotype about the second child, easy-going, carefree, friendly, relax, and unique. Yes, that is exactly me.
I finished a Bachelor of Product Design in ITB, 2012. I worked as a Section Head of Manufacturing Commerce Engineer for two years at PT Adis Dimension Footwear-Nike's licensed factory. A fast-pace kind of work, a packed schedule, and overtimes. I never find myself unoccupied. I am married to Ario Wicaksono on 26th December 2015 and became a housewife. My firstborn on 14th October 2016 and second-born is on 17th May 2019. I have been through the struggles of becoming a new mom—the efforts to find the new self between the stereotypes, the myths, and the reality. Babywearing has helped me to become a confident mother. 31 March-2 April 2017, I got a scholarship from Bubu Foundation to attend the 1st Babywearing Course in Indonesia in Yogyakarta.
So, here I am today—the blood of Art, Soul of a mother, and Love of Shoe Design. I am a mixture of them. And this Web is my place to keep "The Story of My Life." The story was written by a mother to support mothers
