"This is a valuable experience for the team because we can participate in offline competitions in Taiwan and gain many new relationships and knowledge," explained Diva.

Diva and the team had experienced time constraints in participating in this competition, which was the organization of the competition which was very close to the odd Final Semester Examination (UAS) schedule, making her needed to be extra careful in separating her study hours and preparation for this competition.

"As this competition was held close to the odd Final Semester Examination (UAS), there was very little time to prepare for the competition, but we were still excited to take part in the competition and with this achievement it became a motivation for other student friends not to despair and always try to pursue dreams, hopefully with the emergence of many achievements from the academic and non-academic fields can make our beloved university more advanced and victorious," said Diva.
