Hi, I'mQisthia

And I'm a maker

About Me


My name is Qisthia Kattania and I'm an Indonesian maker. Apart from making, I like technology and education because both amplify our possibilities in creating.

These past few years I've made things from Android apps to paper crafts, consumer product concept to electronic project, IT start up to fabric drawing, and as always, writings.

Some of the things I make involve IT, and though it is a male-dominated field, I'm proud to say that I'm a woman.


Binar Academy - Android Development

Oct 2017 - Nov 2017

I spent two months in Binar building an Android app with my teammates. We created an education app that helps students and mentors meet. I went from being a beginner to having knowledge in using Scrum, Git, REST API, and other up-to-date technologies.

At the end of our learning, the mentors and my teammates gave me a really good review that I came out as a Top 5 Graduate and a certified Junior Android Engineer.

Institut Teknologi Bandung - Bachelor's Degree in Management

Aug 2007 - Oct 2010

I took a concentration in Management of Innovation and Technology where I learned the most interesting subject of all: Theory of Inventive Problem Solving. This discipline, which basically is the mother of life hacks, is so engaging that it played a part in reigniting my interest in technology.

I finished my degree with a 3.25 GPA.

Apart from that I also gained experience and lessons for future reference in running a startup.

Mentoring / Reviewing

Script Review

I like reading film scripts and I've reviewed a friend's script before. Send me yours if you'd like honest and blunt feedback.

Early Tech Mentoring

Beginners, would you like some guidance? Stuck on a problem? Want to learn to code but don't know where to start? I'm here.

English Consultation

Come to me with a problem. Perhaps I can help solve it. Ask me grammar, phrasal verbs, learning tips, or other things you have in mind.

Writing Review

Do you want to know what can be improved in your writing? Show me some sample, preferably your best works, and I'll read them. EN or ID. Article, essay, copy, or blog post.

UI/UX Review

I'd like to encourage beginners to make apps and websites. So let me make it easier for you. If you make one and you'd like feedback UI/UX-wise, I'd be happy to do it.

*All of my mentoring and reviewing are free of charge.


-Help me break into industrial design-

I like making stuff and I have a plan to study industrial design in grad school. To do that, I need portfolio for my application. So far, I've managed to make what I can with what I have, but they're currently limited.

This is where I hope you could help me. If you have a studio or a workshop, would you take me as an apprentice? I could help work on projects by being an extra pair of hands. As for me, it would mean I get invaluable experience and knowledge.

Please consider my potential and I'm looking forward to getting my hands dirty.

Hit me up if we sound like a good match
