Tunku Abdul Rahman University College (‘TAR UC’) trio Chee Yong Chun, Ho Zhi Wei and Jerome Liew are not just your traditional stereo typical Science students, as demonstrated in their achievement where they clinched First Prize in the Worldwide WMAM-ISWA YPG Sustainability Video Award 2020 competition in August 2020.
Yong Chun and Zhi Wei from TAR UC’s Bachelor of Science (Hons) in Bioscience with Chemistry programme teamed up with Bachelor of Science (Hons) in Analytical Chemistry student Jerome to pit their creativity and videography skills against five other teams in the competition.
Their combined creativity and videography skills resulted in a short but impactful video entitled “It Matters”, which highlighted the critical importance of how conserving natural resources such as water and electricity can save the Earth’s future.
It successfully won the hearts of the judges, earning them the top spot and RM2,000 in cash prize.
“We were actually shocked for a while when we heard the results, followed by sheer happiness as our concept and efforts were rewarded,” said Yong Chun.
He hopes that this success will prove that TAR UC’s Science students are not just the stereotypical bookworms.
“My team proved that with passion, determination and effort, any student will be able to produce highly creative works no matter which faculty they are from, like how we did with our video.
“The experience was truly an eye-opener for all three of us, and we look forward to more opportunities to explore our potentials,” Yong Chun added.
Their achievement exemplifies the importance of enabling individuals to discover and demonstrate their diverse potentials as championed by TAR UC’s philosophy of Beyond Education.
