There are many competitions held at DSE, one of them is a literature review which is participated by second semester student namely Yeka Ramadhani (2018) with 2 other participants namely Fika (2016) and Kemal (2016). Yekka, Fika, and Kemal were a team and Yeka was the only class of 2018 students who were able to qualify for DSE and won 3rd place in the literature review competition.
According to Yeka, this was her first experience following a literature review competition at the university level. “Awesome! This was the first memorable experience for me, because my initial intention was to learn about literature review, how the process was , and was even given a winning champion bonus as well. Besides, I was grateful to be able to learn from my senior. They didn’t just share some knowledge, but also a role model for me, and this competition is actually not only a place to study but also as a place to establish friendship with senior from different generations and another friends from other universities. Their experience and enthusiasm can provide additional motivation for me who is just a new student and who is eager to learn,” said Yeka. A message from Yeka to friends, “Taking part in a competition like this is really worth it, so let’s keep our friends excited for achievement together!” (Rm / nur)
