It all started on Saturday 18 August at Heathrow Airport, when 12 of us headed to our internship at TIME dotcom Berhard, in Malaysia’s capital city: Kuala Lumpur. Our group is a mixture of Business School and Engineering students going into our final year of our undergraduate degrees at the University of Sussex.

Most of us did not even know each other before the internship and we all introduced ourselves to each other during the long flights to Doha (Qatar) and Kuala Lumpur (Malaysia). This long journey was a great ice-breaker and gave us all the opportunity to get to know each other a bit.
