Melo experience

"People ask the difference between a leader and a boss. The leader leads, and the boss drives." — Theodore Roosevelt, 26th President of the United States

The McDonald's visit is definitly the most unpredictable part of the journey, the secret kitchen we visited and the leadership talk held is extremely unforgettable, the content is very applicable to my academic and social life as I have a lot of group projects going on simultaneously, in which leading and communication skills are very important. Never have I thought something that I learnt in the weekend could be applied in the next week, which was very surprising and encouraging.

I joined project Melo with a low expectation in myself, I feel like us students have no power in changing anything, especially engineering students. After graduation, we just join engineering firms and live goes on, I never knew that the world is so big and with a proper amount of support and knowledge, creative ideas can become the reality. Looking back at where I start, I wouldn't say I have grown much, but my perspective on the world changed.
