Aiming to be an entertainer
Triarona’s specialty is hip-hop dance. Just last year, she participated in 72 dance contests and has either won or received an excellence award in 42 of them. She looks back at this experience saying that “meeting dancers from all over the country was really stimulating.” She started dancing after joining the dance club in her first year of high school.
Designing clothes and writing poetry, her hobbies are many, but “I wanted to enter into the show business, so I decided to hone my dancing skills.” As someone who likes to stand out, she was interested in idols and decided to apply for the JKT third generation audition. “I want to become an entertainer who can do anything. In JKT I can become better at talking and can give energy to people.”
In JKT, hers is a “big sister persona” who listens and gives advice to others. “As I’m one of the oldest third generation members, maybe I’m easy to talk to.” In concerts too, she actively helps the staff, clear sign of her dynamic personality.

Hi, my name is Triarona Kusuma and people call me Tya. I am 17 years old. Most people think that I am cold and weird person. But for myself, I am a perfectionist, risk taker, deep thinker and somewhat mysterious. I hold my own principle, which is I must be someone who is useful for others wherever I am.
My motivation to be JKT48 member is similar to other members. I would like to make my parents happy, obviously. In my opinion, JKT48 may be the best way for me to be a better person. As we know it, JKT48 is not only produce a beautiful; able to sing and dance idol, but also an idol that has inner beauty, smart idol, independent, good manner, responsible and discipline.
With my existence in JKT48, I hope JKT48 can be more acknowledged, with better quality and more success. Thank you.
