"It was really an eye-opening experience to me. I’ve learned how interviews should be done in a polite manner and the process of it was absolutely interesting. I am glad to say that this program is really meaningful to me. Firstly, it helped me to enhance my communication skills while conducting interviews etc. Second, it helped me to make new friends despite everything being held virtually online."

"Inspired and motivated. I believe these two words would be able to define how I felt throughout the program. Being able to be part of an experience like this, I was able to learn so much more about ethnicities and more importantly, perspectives of many others. By understanding how others thought, it gave me better understanding and realisation of how confined my world initially was." - Evelyn Chen, Bachelor of Computer Science (Honours)

"Yes, it was very engaging and fun. It was daunting at first due to the seemingly large responsibilities that were given but ultimately throughout the interviews, I realized how little awareness I had of issues and different cultures within our country. I appreciated this opportunity to learn so much more than what I had initially expected, about culture and heritages as well as the issues. " - Thaqif, Bachelor of Education (Honours)

"I felt ashamed at the beginning for having enough self-awareness and not being open-minded to learn new things. After this journey, I felt a sense of achievement for being able to make a difference by letting these unknown beautiful stories be heard and published on The Rojak Projek website so that everyone can have a chance to read about it and be aware of it. Yes, I felt engaged and had fun during this journey.", Bachelor of Quantity Surveying (Honours)

"The Rojak Projek team has done a great job to take the initiative to mix around and collaborate with each other in ways that lend a voice to unheard. I think this is a very important first step for all the ethnic groups to understand and respect each other and to see the diversity of Malaysia. Joining TRP team is a good opportunity to sharpen your skill set and learn more about the ethnic culture of Malaysia. You won't regret taking part in this program." - KJ, Bachelor of Business (Honours)
