nouv3aux,

The combination of your Indonesian background, gender, and fairly intensive extracurricular/community track record is strong and unusual. Though being a supervisor is a definite asset, your professional profile seems to lack a 'wow' factor so you may not be strong enough for HBS, Stanford, Columbia. But assuming you get a high-600 GMAT I do think schools like Kellogg, Michigan, Haas, and perhaps Wharton would be good targets for you (all are highly ranked in both finance and nonprofit). It might be nice if your Southeast Asia nonprofit were to get off the ground before you applied and you connected it to your post-MBA goals in your essays.

Best of luck,
