At the University of The Philippines, Diliman, Quezon City, the event was opened by a welcoming message from Josuard I. Gonzales, The Chairperson of ASEAN Youth Engagement Summit. It was warmly welcomed as well by Amb. Ong Keng Yong, the Former Secretary-General ASEAN, and Ms. Elaine Tan, the Executive Director of the ASEAN Foundation.

Previously on the 1st Day of the summit, the partner organization presented a main problem on which the delegates needed to deliberate. The delegates sought solutions with the assistance of the partner organization or through relevant research. The groups then presented their solutions and ideas to the assigned evaluators and judges. The inputs gathered during the competition can be considered and used by the partner organization in solving the ongoing problems of their community. Furthermore, this can also be an opportunity for potential collaboration between the partner organization and the delegate groups.

They designed The Balanced Scorecard for Sangguniang Kabataan (Youth Council).
“First we designed the strategy map and KPI for the organization. We designed them based on 4 perspectives, there are Financial perspective, Learning and Growth perspective, Youth’s Satisfaction perspective as Customer Satisfaction perspective and Legislation perspective as Internal Business Process perspective. Yes, exactly we replaced the customer satisfaction and internal business process perspectives, adjusted to the organization needs”. Anissa (13 March, 2019).

“The experience of meeting other delegates from other countries were so much fun, I have learned a lot about ASEAN, and is important for my studies, and I hope I could inspire any other students in Indonesia to challenge themselves on joining this type of event” Anissa (13 March, 2019)

I want to share my experience during my study at Universitas Bakrie, me and two of my friends choose to join student exchange's program to Universitas Bakrie (UB) as it was recommended by our Dean. Our arrival at Soekarno Hatta International Airport was welcomed by Devi, Soraya, and Thesa.
Above is our picture in front of UB. Thesa and Soraya brought us to tour the university. That time we meet a lot of new friends, they are so nice and welcoming us very well.
This picture is when I am joining a program by the political science department at Bogor for 2 days and 2 nights. It such a great experience and I will cherish every moment.
Meanwhile, here are our friends from Communication courses. Firly and Wulan are so helpful, they always help us regarding our political communication class. Thank you, guys.
Finally, this is our last trip before going back to Malaysia. Thank you UB for bringing us to Bandung. It such a great journey and everything was beautiful, we got our delicious brownies from Kartika Sari. Thank you again.
Overall, joining a student exchange program to Universitas Bakrie was a good idea. I gained new experience and meet a lot of new friends. Everything was good, perhaps it was much more better than what I am expecting it should be. The college is so nice with the conducive environment, it looks like a college in High School Musical's movie. Of course, I liked it. All the people treated me and my friends nicely, either the lecturers, staffs, and friends, everyone is so nice and very helpful. I would like to thank you to everyone that help me throughout this semester. I will highly recommend this university to my friends and junior in UUM. Thank you, till we meet again.
It almost feels like it simply was yesterday when I was in a plane and did not really know what to expect, however, excited for what the future had on behalf of me. Currently, I am back home with a lot of memories, and plenty of stories to share. I do not even know where to start now that I am writing regarding on my experience as an exchange student for a whole semester at Universitas Bakrie.
Following the MoU between Universitas Bakrie and Universiti Utara Malaysia (UUM), the students from UUM are ready to exchange students to Universitas Bakrie located at Rasuna Epicentrum Area Jl. HR Rasuna Said Kav C – 22, Kuningan, South Jakarta. We are the first batch here to exchange students and thank God they were very welcoming and all of the staff, dosen, and students were very nice. The student exchange here is me, Nor Zaiwafaa and my two other friends Nur Afifah and Amirah Diyana. Here, we were given the opportunity to stay in a Kosan where each of us was provided with our own rooms.
The Bakrie University environment is very different that makes the experience of undergoing this exchange program more interesting. Where how the learning process, culture, and the surrounding environment here are also very different from UUM. Where it is located in the city areas and there are many malls and traffic here, which were very differ from the greenery surrounding in UUM. Also, I did make a lot of friends and met so many people here during the exchange programs. We get a lot of help in learning from lectures and friends, and when there are things we do not know and needed help, Mba Devi will always manage us reliably.
Run For Zoo program organized by Universitas Bakrie Komunikasi Politik class
Kepulauan Seribu with Embassy Malaysia Jakarta
In addition, we have gained many new experiences in Indonesia, especially when we were asked to do a project to bring all political communications classmates to the Embassy of Malaysia, which brought us closer to the Embassy of Malaysia in Jakarta, and they also invited us to participate in many embassy programs, watch the football match together and also visit the Thousand Islands of Indonesia. We also did join programs made by Universitas Bakrie students such as Run For Zoo in Zoo Ragunan, Jakarta.
Apart from that, Bakrie University's treat us exceptionally pleasant they get us to see how graduation (wisuda) in Universitas Bakrie are and furthermore bring us to visit Indonesia. Where, we have been taken to the Kota Tua Jakarta, Bogor and also to Bandung just before we go home. Through this, we can learn many cultures in Indonesia. Besides the lovely and beautiful atmosphere of Indonesia.
Being in the exchange program has taught me a lot of things. I have grown and my perspective has changed in ways I never would have imagined. I can now say that I am more independent, appreciate my family and friends more, open to new ideas, more adventurous and higher self-confident. It was the best time in my life to participate in this exchange program at Universitas Bakrie Indonesia and I will always remember all the experience and it will always be something I always cherish.
My 5th semester in Indonesia was amazing in every way. I made new friends, I became more fluent in Indonesian, I gained a stronger sense of independence and I got to eat all the food. The best thing about Indonesia is its diversity and its friendly people. Each city is so remarkably different, with different local foods and languages. I have visited some cities throughout my existence in Indonesia and hoping to get a chance to visit the rest later on. I believe that all the experiences I encountered as an exchange student in the UB helped me shape and develop a sense of maturity, responsibility and independence. In fact, UB has its own positive values. As I can say, regardless of status or rank, they all respect each other. I love to see what they have practiced as well as expect this kind of culture to be applied in Malaysia. Furthermore, people of UB are so helpful and friendly. I am grateful for being a part of them even only for one semester.
