Sandioriva was born in Jakarta to a Sundanese father and an Acehnese mother. She attended the Al-Azhar School for her elementary and secondary education. During high school, Sandioriva joined the Pencak Silat and choir team of her school and won a choir competition. She is currently studying at the University of Indonesia majoring in French literature.

Her participation in Puteri Indonesia 2009 was controversial because she was representing the province of Nanggroe Aceh Darussalam, a conservative Muslim province ruled by Sharia Law. Past representatives of Nanggroe Aceh Darussalam had always worn a headscarf, but Sandioriva did not. Sandioriva later explained that despite not wearing a headscarf, she still upheld traditional values and morals - just like the Acehnese heroine she admired, Cut Nyak Dien
