Academically, I am interested in master's economic management, and I want my career around teaching management leaders as a lecturer, on the other hand wanting to be an art n culture developer. I am very eager to get a scholarship to start a program called Youth Youth Exchange Program (SYEP). SYEP is a program to send youth as representatives of Aceh to introduce Culture especially Aceh Culture across the world. Formed a Volunteer group of students who will go to college and school there, introducing our amazing cultural heritage. We will also promote tourism in Aceh to attract them to visit the Kingdom of Aceh-Indonesia. My vision to follow this program is to seek experience and train myself as a youth who is responsible for his country because I love my country because I love the kingdom of aceh-indonesia,
I really want to review about aceh so that everything will recall and know the extraordinary history, art and culture about the aceh kingdom that even recorded in history although obscured by fact that Indonesia itself was born because of relying on kingdom of aceh because of recognition from kingdom of aceh.
Please keep following me .. little I will expose flashback of Aceh art culture n history in introducing myself ....

In the days of the Sultan Iskandar Muda Meukuta Perkasa Alam, Aceh is a country very rich and prosperous. According to a French explorer who arrived in Aceh in the heyday of the era, the power reaching the west coast of Aceh, Minangkabau up to Silver. Sultanate of Aceh have established relationships with the kingdoms of the West in the 16th century, including Britain, the Ottomans, and the Netherlands.
The aceh flag of the empire
Aceh Sultanate involved a prolonged power struggle since the beginning of the 16th century, first by Portugal, and since the 18th century with the United Kingdom (UK) and the Netherlands. At the end of the 18th century, Aceh was forced to hand over territory in Kedah and Pulau Pinang in Malay Peninsula to Great Britain.
In 1887 the Dutch explorer SNOUCK HURGRONJE requested the permission to do exploratory fieldwork through rural Aceh from the then Dutch Colonial Administration in Batavia. Although the administration find it too dangerous because of the severe resistant from Acehnese rebels towards Dutch Colonial Present in Aceh at that time, eventually Batavia granted him the permission. In his book “HET GAJOLAND EN ZIJNE BEWONERS” (THE GAYO LAND AND ITS INHABITANTS) published in 1903, he reported finding a species of coffee plants in almost every village in Gayo. The local population did not know the origins of the plant and how it arrived on Gayo Land, but said it grew in the wild. The Gayonese at that time used the plants as fences around their gardens.
It is possible that the plant was brought to Aceh by the Arabs, who were one of the first nations to commercialize coffee. The Arab influence in Aceh dated back to 1297 AD, during the spreading of Islam throughout South East Asia with Aceh’s SAMUDERA PASAI KINGDOM (150 km from Takengon). The first Dutch expedition to Aceh was in 1873 led by General KOHLER who was killed by the Acehnese on the first attempt to take control of the capital Banda Aceh
