Additionally, PSU Student who participated in the MMU Virtual Mobility Program was part of the winning team in Video Competition!
"The two week-program had very early morning sessions due to the time difference. However, it was very enjoyable and interesting. I got to interact with people from all around the world and to represent PSU there. There was a group project in which we had to work with students from other countries and talk about cultural diversity. We decided to take the audience to a quick virtual trip representing the most famous buildings in our home countries. After a lot of hard work, we managed to prepare a video that contained mosques, temples, and buildings from Malaysia, Indonesia, the Philippines, and Egypt. This video helped us win first place in the competition! In this session, I learned a lot about different cultures, especially the Malaysian one. In addition to that, I feel more open-minded since I got to work with people from various cultures, and I made a lot of new friends."
