In this competition, Ulfa utilizes knowledge from the lecture process. She makes simple creative economy products from straw.

"One of the things that must be owned by a nonoman role model and one of them is the breadth of knowledge where I make a creative economic product from straw in one of the tourist villages in Bogor City," said Ulfa Atamimi.

Ulfa shared some of the challenges she faced, such as finding and highlighting one's abilities and strengths among the participants who had excelled. Previously, Ulfa, together with the association and the Office of Culture, Tourism and Creative Economy of the City of Bogor, had conducted many training activities for six months, which experts in their respective fields guided.

"As an agriculture student, I want to introduce the diversity of nature not only from the city of Bogor but also in West Java. In addition, I also want to point out that culture and creative economy, combined with knowledge, will become a unique regional wealth," said Ulfa, who is also known for his work in promotional activities as an Ambassador of IPB University.

With his knowledge and background, Ulfa tries to contribute to society. Especially in the agricultural sector. She also hopes that the younger generation can always recognize the potential of their region.
