Jakarta Shimbun Entry
Hobbies: Listening to music
Favourite phrase: “Never give up”
I want to lead a stimulating life!
“Just going to school every day is not stimulating enough for me,” says Farin with a smile. In JKT48, “I want to have experiences different from a normal person’s and enrich my life.” She has graduated from high school and will start attending university in September. The days of balancing her studies and JKT activities await.
She started being interested in modeling after participating in a contest in primary school, and in high school she was a member of the Fashion Club. She studied how to walk on stage, posing, and other basics of modeling. “Even now I look at the mirror when I pose,” she says proudly.
At the Surabaya concert, “I felt I was doing something special. At the same time, I felt the fans’ warmth. I will go on one step at a time, my own way. I will use my modeling experience to get the fans’ eyes fixed on me.”

Hello, my name is Putri Farin Kartika. People call me Farin and I am 17 years old. People say that I am a cold person, but actually not. I am a caring and loving person. What else? They say I am very feminine because I am very spoiled, such as I don’t have any guts to drive my own car. Also because I have many makeup collections and all the pinky stuffs.
I am motivated to be JKT48 member by my hopes, dream and endeavor to be an idol because since the beginning, I like JKT48 and AKB48. Not forget to say my biggest motivation is to make my parent and big family proud.
In the future, I wish I could develop myself because in JKT48 we are encouraged to keep learning. I would like to be better and show to everyone that I can do it. For JKT48, I hope that they can have continuous generation, so you are not bored at us.
Thank you! Bye!
