|Serious : Nabila and Andi F Noya on Kick Andy talk show|
Eight students of Communication study program have succeeded to become the initiator of Kampung Warna-Warni Jodipan (shortened as KWJ/ Colorful Village). They got big appreciation from many parties and won numerous awards. Besides, they also got a special attention from the Minister of Work and Public Housing , Imam Nahrawi when visiting Malang city.
Their success attracted Metro TV (TV station) to invite Guys Pro UMM team to share the inspiration in "Kick Andy" talk show. The talk show would be aired on Friday, November 18th, 2016 at 20:00 and replayed the next day at 13:05.
Guys Pro UMM team coordinator, Nabila Firdausiyah, said that it was hard to believe when the first time she was contacted by Metro TV staff. "On October 24, 2016 morning the Metro TV staff contacted me and asked me to be interviewed on Kick Andy talk show. The next day, I was informed that I was invited to go to Jakarta to share inspiration on the talk show,”. Nabila is a student of UMM at Communication study program.
On the show, to Andy Flores Noya (the presenter of the show),Nabila talked a lot about KWJ and where the idea to make it came from. Before becoming what it looks like today, KWJ was a slum village.
