Han Chiang University College of Communication (HCUC) ambassador and famous TV host Tan Ley Teng encouraged young people to start exploring new media technologies if they are keen to pursue careers in the media industry.
“In today’s world, due to the technological advancements, it’s good to combine both traditional and new media to make the industry more fun.
“Thus, media players must be able to possess many skills, not only to just concentrate on one area of expertise.
“The same thing goes to those who are keen to become a Youtuber. Start polishing your production skills and learning the effective ways to incorporate them with your content,” she said during The Pathways to Higher Education: Sharing Session with Tan Ley Teng organised by JCI in collaboration with HCUC, which was attended by students from various high schools in Taiping.
During the one-hour session, which was held at the Lee Clan Association Perak North, Ley Teng also shared her experience in the media industry and showed some of her news footages, which she has collected since 10 years ago.
Meanwhile, Ley Teng also shared her experience studying in HCUC and described the university college, which was formerly known as Han Chiang College, as always having encouraged students to participate in many activities.
“Although I was a journalism student, I took part in many theatrical performances and films organised by the college.
“Thus, I encourage you to enrol in HCUC because of the new and modern media facilities, which can be utilised by the students,” she said.
Besides the sharing session by Ley Teng, there were other activities lined-up on that day such as the green screen demonstration and word guessing games.
Other attendees at the session were JCI Taiping President Bryan Lee Swee Peng, JCI Taiping Sharing Session 2018 Chairperson Alice Wong Yah Hooi and HCUC’s School of Communication and Media Acting Dean Dr. Jane Teh.
