K. Kwanmada said “I am glad when seeing students try to catch up the trend of digital marketing. At first, I did not sure that students were able to understand the concept of digital marketing since the time that I studied, Communication Arts at my time, the lessons didn’t include the contents about the digital marketing at all, but after the session, I felt so glad when I found that they have already catch up with the trend. I would like to tell them that, everyone can be the influencer. All they need is the passion from doing what they love, then create a good content from those things. Or if they prefer to do the branding, marketing or communication, I hope that they would understand that the influencer is one of the tools that effectively help with the digital marketing”

Usually, my session is about photo techniques and skills but this time I share idea about my life experience. For all students, I would suggest that the first step is find yourself. If you find yourself faster, it will prepare you for the future faster too. Whatever you want to be in the future is a possible and you have a potential to do it. So set your goal and prepare yourself for it. Think about the way or how to achieved your goal. Sometime you will face with a difficult time but it will teach you and shape you for great opportunity that will come someday. I believe that everyone has a chance and the time will come.
