Incorrect.

In Indonesian, both "I" and "my" are translated into "Saya".

So how to differentiate? The difference is in the word order. Example:

Saya Tini -> I am Tini.

In this sentence, 'Saya' functions as "I"

Nama saya Tini -> My name is Tini.

In this sentence, "Saya" functions as "my".

Hope this helps
