“We see that there are not many practices or cultivation packages that provide herbal plant commodities, so we want to answer these two basic ideas at once so we design a package for herbal plant cultivation,” said Ubaidillah.
Ubaidillah, more commonly called Ubed, talked about the process he went through throughout the competition, starting from creating ideas to creating proposals. The proposal-making process is also pretty complex. Other than making a business model and budget and marketing plan, they also need to make the design of the product.
After going through the finals, Ubed also said that he struggled with his flight to Karawang. The problem is, the faculty only gives incentives when students have won a competition, they do not accommodate students’ needs for the competition.
“ At that time, we flew with our own money to hear the finals announcement, without knowing whether we won or not. But we made it happen because we believed that we would win first prize. We flew and it was true, we won,” he said.
Savana said that she is very proud of her and her team’s hard work when trying to get the prize. However, according to her, good competition is a finished competition. She is excited to join activities outside of the campus to develop her skills and try to challenge herself.
“Hopefully she can be braver in taking chances outside of campus that can train my skills,” she said.
Ubed also gave a small message to students. He said that the facility to develop ourselves is already wide open and one of those facilities is a competition.
“Compete, get as many achievements as you can while you’re in university, because it’s one of the best ways to develop yourself,” Ubed said.
