Yudhistira Kazuhiro Budiono (Kazu)

Kazu has an associate’s degree in philosophy and environmental horticulture at Santa Barbara City College and a bachelor’s degree in philosophy from the University of California, Berkeley. He joined SIT Indonesia in fall 2018 upon returning to Bali, where he grew up. He was brought up in an intercultural family, with an Indonesian father and Japanese mother, and can confidently speak Japanese and is fluent in English and Indonesian. During summers, Kazu has devoted his time to privately tutoring students from SMP Negeri 1 Paguyangan near his father’s village in Central Java. On the side, his interests in agriculture and permaculture motivated him to develop his own project in growing fruit trees, maintaining them whenever he visits the village.
