“In the beginning, we were completely clueless about how online graduation exhibition goes, but our lecturers were very responsible for teaching and leading us the way. Although we made many mistakes in the process, they were always there to guide us by the side. They gave many good advice and told us the right way to manage our work so that we won’t make the same mistakes in our future careers,” explained the group’s vice president, Ng Wan Rou.
