“Pan Mohamad Faiz”

Nama lengkapnya adalah Pan Mohamad Faiz, sering dipanggil Faiz, lahir di Jakarta tanggal 24 Desember 1982, seorang peneliti di Mahkamah Konstitusi yang saat ini menempuh studi doktoral di University of Queensland Australia dengan beasiswa dari AusAID. Penelitian di bidang Hukum Tata negara yang ia sedang kerjakan sekarang adalah mengenai konsep pemerintahan konstitusional yang erat dengan latar belakang pekerjaannya.

Selama menempuh studi di Australia, Faiz sempat menjadi Presiden UQISA, asosiasi pelajar mahasiswa Indonesia di kampusnya. Selanjutnya, ia mendapat amanah untuk menjadi Presiden PPIA (Perhimpunan Pelajar Indonesia Australia) sekaligus menjadi koordinator PPI Dunia atau OISAA (Overseas Indonesian Students Association Alliance) periode 2013-2014. Dalam aktivitasnya di organisasi kemahasiswaan, Faiz menilai bahwa para pelajar Indonesia di luar negeri tetap berkiprah sambil menyamakan persepsi untuk membangun negeri. Meskipun berada di luar negeri, ternyata semangat nasionalisme mereka “tetap berkibar”.

Indonesia adalah tanah air yang penuh keragaman nilai-nilai budaya dan kekayaan alam sehingga berpotensi menjadi negara yang sangat berperan di dunia. Berbagai studi dan analisis menunjukkan perkembangan Indonesia ke arah yang lebih baik. Atas hal tersebut, Faiz memandang perlunya keyakinan dan optimisme terhadap bangsa dan negara Indonesia. Meski demikian, memang masih banyak yang harus dibenahi dalam mencapai cita cita kemerdekaan Indonesia, salah satunya adalah penegakan hukum dan upaya pemberantasan korupsi.

Bagi Faiz, manajemen waktu adalah hal yang terpenting. Kesibukannya dalam berbagai peran tidak menjadi penghalang baginya untuk menjalankan amanah sebagai seorang “ayah”. Ayah dari Bintang El Justicia ini selalu berupaya untuk menciptakan keseimbangan itu meski ia harus membayarnya dengan bekerja lebih keras di malam hari. Menurut Faiz, kapanpun dan dimanapun kita harus bisa memberikan yang terbaik dan dimulai dari sekarang juga. Pun, kita juga harus bisa selalu memandang Indonesia dalam perspektif yang baik sekaligus mencari solusi konkrit dari permasalahan yang ada.

His full name is Pan Mohamad Faiz , called as Faiz, who was born in Jakarta on December 24, 1982. He is a researcher at the Constitutional Court who is currently studying for a PhD degree at The University of Queensland (UQ), Australia under an AusAID scholarship. His research in the Constitutional Law is about Indonesian constitutional concept that is closely related to his background.

While pursuing his PhD in Australia, Faiz had become a President of UQISA, an association of Indonesian students at UQ. He was then selected as the national President of the Indonesian Students Association of Australia (PPIA) as well as a coordinator of the World PPI or Overseas Indonesian Students Association Alliance (OISAA) in 2013 until 2014. During his activities in student organisations, Faiz valued the role of Indonesian students abroad that remain active in the same perception to build the country. Despite being overseas, the students still have a strong spirit of nationalism.

Indonesia is a country full of cultural diversity, has a wealth of cultural values ​​as well as natural resources and thus may potentially play an important role in the world. Various studies and analyzes had shown the improvement of Indonesia. Therefore, Faiz points out the need of confidence and optimism to the Indonesian nation. Yet much remains to be addressed in achieving future goals of Indonesia’s independence, one of which is the enforcement of law and efforts to combat corruption.

For Faiz, time management is the most important thing. His various roles could never become obstacles to do his important task in life as a “father”. As a father of Bintang El Justicia, he always attempting to create this balance although working during night-time is as the consequence. According to Faiz , we need to be able to give the best whenever and wherever we are. This should be started from now on. Also, we have to be able to view Indonesia in a good perspective and find solutions to the existing problems.
