I’m really happy you still remember me. Today is perhaps the last time I’ll be here as JKT48 team J member.
Three years ago, I still can’t speak Indonesian. I’m still a shy girl back then, didn’t have any character whatsoever, I’m just your ordinary 13 years old girl.
I really really love JKT48 that changed me.
Back then, since I didn’t know how to speak Indonesian, I always one step behind compared to the others. It was hard the first time to be honest.
As a 1st generation member, there’s a lot of happiness in JKT48 as well as hardship. Due to many hardship, there was a time when I felt that I can’t continue no more.
I realize that I was weak, but the fans in Indonesia keep on supporting me. When I felt sad, I got letters and drawings by the fans. I’m really happy.
I put them in a tidy collection case. And now, whenever I feel down, I always read them over and over again. Sometimes I even cried when I read it.
I’m really happy that I’ve met you all. I feel that I don’t deserve this happiness. Thank you very much for supporting me who can’t even sing well, can’t dance well, and even can’t do MC properly.
Thank you very much for supporting me who don’t have anything to be proud of to be at this point.
Because of you, I can do my activities well in Japan. But I’m sorry that I can’t do my activities in Japan as well as I did in Jakarta.
Even though I…(choked) Even though I promised to do my activities well in Japan so that Japanese will know more about JKT48 and Indonesia. I could do little for my promise. I’m really sorry..
But with that said, there was a Calendar Senbatsu in JKT48 and I thought I would never be in it since I’m no longer in Jakarta. But when I heard my name being called last, I’m so happy. There’s still a lot of you who supported me.
In Japan, I swear myself to become senbatsu’s member so that I can repay you with my thanks. I failed in this year sousenkyo, but next year, I’ll try my best to become a senbatsu member.
My tears are welling up when I know that there are fans from Indonesia who voted for me. Thank you very much from the deepest part of my heart.
Three years ago, I didn’t have many friends at school, but now, there are lots of friends around me. I’m so happy.
I really love JKT48. The fans, the staff, and of course the members.
I told you earlier that this will be my last appearance as JKT48 member, but next time, I will be back as AKB48 team B member.
[Applause from audiences]
Because, just like Haruka-san, I want to do my future activities back in Indonesia. I want to keep on fighting for my role now, and I’ll make sure that one day, I’ll be back here again. So, please wait for me.
I beg for your continuous support for JKT48 (choked) and Rena Nozawa.
Thank you! (quivering)
