Jakarta Shimbun Entry
Favorite phrase: “What’s important for people is not looks, but personality”
I want to become better at singing
“I like things with a strong flavor and ancient look.” Sisca also says she enjoys looking at Japanese castles and temples. When Japanese sceneries are depicted in manga or TV drama, she always ends up staring.
“Many new buildings are being made here in Indonesia, but I can’t easily find buildings with good atmosphere.” One reason why she likes ancient-looking buildings is “I feel like ghosts might be coming out, it’s exciting.”
She is also interested in shamans and would like to study psychology in the future to take care of the psychological condition of people that have been exorcised.
From the age of three until the sixth year of primary school, she has frequented a singing school at her mother’s suggestion, and has also participated in musicals. She enjoyed both singing and acting, she says. When she graduated, she was even awarded the “Most Excellent Student” title.
Now, as a JKT member, “I want to get better and better at singing,” she says, her eyes sparkling.

Hello! My name is Fransisca Saraswati Puspa Dewi. You can call me Sisca. I am 14 years old. For any people I’m not familiar with, they usually think that I am reserved and cold. Well, actually I am a witty and active person. I really like to make some noise.
My motivation to be JKT48 member is to make my parent happy. Since I like singing and dancing, I would like to improve my abilities in JKT48. At the end, I would like to be a popular and inspiring idol thanks to my talent. I would like to prove to my family and friends that I could achieve what I dream of.
I hope that JKT48 can be more popular, have worldwide concert and performance in Madison Square Garden. For myself, I hope that JKT48 can help me to develop myself and attain what I want to have.
