This event was organized by AIESEC in UNS. AISEC itself is an international organization with 127 member states focusing on youth development to run social projects between countries. 

Students from overseas are in Indonesia for 6 weeks starting on June 18, 2018, to undertake four projects called Green Revolution (environment), Entrevolution (Entrepreneurship), Gantari Kids and Care (Health), and Edu Vaganza (Education).

"In Barcelona, football was not a sport anymore, it is a religion, and the God is Lionel Messi"
Agnes (21) from France (she is a Brazilian) said that she has never been going to an Asian country and Indonesia is the country that interests her most.

There is also a story from Yinyin (21) a student from Taiwan who study in United State of America (USA). "Here, when someone says ‘Yes’, that is not necessarily ‘Yes’, when they say ‘No’, that does not mean ‘No’, I am often confused because of that. Because in the USA, ‘Yes’ definitely ‘Yes’ and ‘No’ definitely ‘No’" She laughs.

All the exchange students were asked about their favorite food in Indonesia, and most of them answer fried rice as their favorite food.
