Christy Zakarias (born 19 July 1998; 20 years old), also known as Christy Zee, is an Indonesian humanitarian public figure from Bekasi, Indonesia. She was the first Indonesian to receive the International Diana Memorial Award in 2013[1]. Zakarias was awarded by former British Prime Minister David Cameron and British diplomat Mark Canning for co-founding and leading Riveria, a student-run initiative that teaches underprivileged Indonesian children English, since she was an eighth grader[2]. She has since then appeared on various media, schools, and universities as a guest speaker and motivator[3][4][5][6][7].

Zakarias graduated from high school as a valedictorian from Sinarmas World Academy (SWA) in May 2015 [8]. She then received a BSc with honours in Neuroscience from University College London (UCL) in September 2018; UCL is ranked as the second best university for Neuroscience in the world and the best in Europe by Thomson ISI Essential Science Indicators [9][10][11][12]. Also a budding music producer, Zakarias has worked with artists such as Dua Lipa, Conor Maynard, and Cheat Codes in the past under the pen name "Zee" as both a ghostwriter and songwriter for Universal Music Group Global [13].
