Andi Sjamsu

Born in Ujung Pandang, Andi often feels he’s still a newcomer to the United States even though he has lived in the U.S. for over 40 years. Along with Cynthia (his wife) and Arianna and Aji (his children), Andi has lived in the Princeton, NJ area since 1998 & is active in his children's schooling since they started kindergarten. In 2009, Andi became the first Indonesian to be elected to the Board of Directors for New Jersey State PTA (Parent Teacher Association), the state affiliate of National PTA, the largest volunteer child advocacy association in the nation. The opinions expressed here are Andi’s personal opinions and do not reflect the opinion of NJPTA or National PTA.
