My name is Samantha Liza and I am from Kuching, Sarawak. I am a forestry student from Universiti Putra Malaysia. My academic background is what really aspired me to choose EcoKnights as my internship destination.
My internship at EcoKnights has taught me more than I could have imagined. As an intern, my tasks were diverse, and ever-changing. It does helped me to reinforce my knowledge of responsibility, focus, drive and ambition. As the day goes by, I realized that my time with EcoKnights has been an amazing experience. I really enjoyed working together with so many different people and other interns from various academic backgrounds as well as being able to meet new people from different companies, organizations and societies. It was really awesome in making great connections with them. All this requires a huge amount of patience and tests my attention skills as well. The biggest skill that I learned is the execution of a huge event where it requires me to be patient, committed, efficient and of course energetic to keep me driven through the progress. I also learned and appreciate the value of teamwork and what it takes to be a great team player. We always have each other’s back and that what make my days in EcoKnights even more meaningful. Sometimes when work is intense, we do have to go through sleepless nights yet it was always fun and dynamic and definitely worth the lack of sleep!
My internship at EcoKnights is an extremely valuable experience. It is a small taste of the real world. The best way to learn is by doing. I am truly grateful and blessed for this opportunity and forever indebted to those who gave me a hand here especially to Yasmin and Fadly. Remember to always be friendly, work hard, ask questions and have each other’s back. Wishing EcoKnights a great success. Thanks everyone! Peace.
