Marissa Grace Haque Graduates with a Doctorate
Theresia Sufa, The Jakarta Post, Bogor | Wed, 02/29/2012 4:53 PMCelebrity Marissa Grace Haque graduated with a doctorate from the Bogor Institute of Agriculture’s (IPB) natural resource management and environment studies on Wednesday.
“I am majoring in environmental study focusing on illegal logging. The research was conducted in Riau because it is the sexiest region, geographically,” Marissa said after the graduation ceremony inside Grawida Hall at the Darmaga campus in Bogor.
When asked why she chose environmental studies, the wife of rock-star Ikang Fawzi said that it was because of her academic background in legal and business studies.
“My thesis statement was ‘crime is driven by economy, while the vehicle is politics’,” she said.
She also said that she would leave for East Timor on March 5 after being invited by the country’s agriculture and women’s empowerment ministries to commemorate World Women’s Day.
Marissa said that she would stay in East Timor for 10 days, while being involved in various discussions related to environmental and women’s empowerment issues.
“Environmental issues are very important because there are three things which can make human survive: water, air and food,” she said.
“These three things are getting reduced. Water sustainability is already damaged while food is getting scarcer due to the bigger population.” (nvn)
