Jakarta Shimbun Entry
Special ability: Singing
Favorite word: “No problem”
With the mindset “Aku Rapopo”
Her favorite phrase is “Aku Rapopo”. (Aku ora opo-opo = Aku tidak apa-apa) In Indonesian language, it actually means “No problem” or “I’m okay”, but she uses this word with the understanding that “I’m always together with you.” “I would like to become an idol who treasures her fans.”
She was taught by her brother how to operate a personal computer, so computing class has become her favorite subject now. Her hobby is photography, and she loves both taking and being in pictures. After finishing her make-up, her mother often takes pictures of her. “It makes me blush,” she smiled. She would like to buy a professional camera, and “I want to take JKT48 members’ and various people’s smiles,” she said.
When she was in elementary school, she didn’t stop eating ice cubes as a joke in front of her mother who was troubled by toothache. That is why she likes to eat ice cubes. She has one elder brother and two younger brothers.
“I joined JKT48 and am going to work hard to support my family,” she showed her determination.

Hello, my name is Ayu Safira Oktaviani. You can call me Okta and I am 14 years old. People think that I am a quiet person in the beginning. Well actually I am a talkative person and sometimes I am very prone to bad mood situation. But no matter what I feel inside, either sad or happy, I like to chew ice cube. I understand that this is a weird habit, but I am just being myself.
My motivations to be JKT48 member are to achieve my dream to be an idol and make my parent proud. I would like to be our seniors in JKT48 who are able to inspire many people. I hope JKT48 could help me to develop my talent, such as dancing, singing and MC. Of course I hope that JKT48 can be more popular in the future. Thank you!
