Cesare is a graduate of International Relations studies from Universitas Diponegoro in Semarang, Indonesia. Focusing on transnational/international crime, he managed to graduate by writing a thesis on the influx of migrant workers to Qatar.

After graduating, his passion and curiosity led his career to become a football coach and project consultant for a project titled “Coaching for Life”, a project aimed to equip children in Jakarta with life skills and to improve their mental resilience through football. This unique experience has led him to be interested in children’s education, psychology, and about women in football.
