Including food stands, mural stands, culture stands, and face painting stands. Because of the stands, visitors are not bored because they can do many activities. Among all the booths at J-EALFEST, the most interesting and much visited was the stand face painting. At this stand visitors can request what designs they like to paint on their faces. Initially this stand was inspired by a festival in America namely the Coachella Valley Music and Art Festival where visitors who come to the festival paint motifs to their faces. From that, we make stand face painting with the aim that visitors can feel that they also come to music events with vibes like in Coachella festival.
Besides to the booths, we also have a main stage that displays a variety of performances filled by students, participants of the J-EALFEST, and also guest stars. They performed in band, duet, acoustic, and dance forms.

Terlebih bagi penulis yang sekaligus melakoni peran sebagai ibu rumah tangga. Seorang digital writer dapat mengerjakan dua pekerjaan sekaligus, mengurus rumah tangga dan menulis. "Yang paling penting adalah kemauan kita yang besar untuk melahirkan buku tersebut, jangan berhenti ditengah" ujarnya saat seminar berlangsung. Saat ini beliau juga membuka kelas menulis online untuk para penulis pemula. Yang artinya, menjadi digital writer tidak hanya bisa menulis secara online tetapi juga bisa menjadi guru menulis online.

Perjuangannya akhirnya berbuah manis. Kini ia dijuluki dengan sebutan "The First Indonesian Blind Blogger". Melalui kisah hidupnya, ia ingin mengajarkan kepada masyarakat luas khususnya mahasiswa bahwa usaha tidak akan mengkhianati hasil.
