MEET OUR TEAM
Maria Cynthia Jaya
Cynthia found her passion for social equality and sustainability through her involvement in community service at a young age. Using her background in law, she channels her passion to help others by working pro-bono cases. As her love for Indonesia’s rich biodiversity grew, so did her desire to be involved in climate action. This passion became the foundation that founded Project Planet Indonesia.

After graduating and working in several different countries to pursue her career in the hospitality industry, Stephanie became increasingly troubled by a pervasive feature of her job: waste. Her passion for sustainability sparked from seeing the industry’s lack of consideration for the environment and its natural resources. She dreams to support the development of Indonesia’s sustainability sector, with a focus on education, tourism, and hospitality.
Last Seen: Scuba diving in Raja Ampat and basking in the peacefulness and beauty of the underwater world.
