The title of Vice President was carried by Fouly, his nickname, on 3 November during a meeting of international students at Sebelas Maret University Surakarta (UNS). This agenda was an annual meeting for foreign students studying Indonesian culture and language. Fouly was elected at presidential election conference and Vice President of ISA international students.
Besides Fouly, there were five more people who applied to become student candidates. They were from the University of Indonesia (UI), the Indonesian University of Education (UPI), even from the University of Muhammadiyah Yogyakarta (UMY). The countries of origin were from Thailand, Sudan, Egypt and Korea. On the second day of the conference, Hussein Gebreel Musa who was from UMY from Sudan finally elected as the president of ISA students.
In his management for the next year, Fouly would create an international student association website. "We want to be able to interact with fellow foreign students who are studying Indonesian easier so that if something happens they can contact us. In addition, it can be a place to disseminate information about this association, "said Fouly, Wednesday (7/11).
Fouly had chosen one person in each city to be the coordinator. "Through this website, later when we (foreign students) have returned to our countries and have occupied important positions in their countries, we need to disseminate information about them because they have processed together and have also been part of this association while studying in Indonesia," concluded Fouly.
