I got selected for a reality TV program??
Let me trace this story back to the beginning.
So on March 7, me and five other students from UTP were selected to represent the university to an interview session for the above-mentioned program.
Travelling to KL to the offices of the Department of Special Affairs, we had to undergo a grueling interview session that tested us on our general knowledge, self-confidence and speaking abilities.
Among the things I was asked included subjects like the history of Malaysia, background of knowledge management (my chosen major), and the concept of 1Malaysia.
Today I just received the call from an officer at the department that I had been selected for the program, along with the other five students as well.
Although I definitely didn’t expect this to be a reality show program. I wish the department’d quickly send us more details about the whole event rather than leave us hanging here like this.
I wonder what the end of this month has in store for me.
More importantly, with FYP presentation on the 31st, how am I going to be able to get so many things done before the program starts?
Want to find out what the program was like for me, and how it turned out?
