SINGAPORE: Eighty international students on an Asia Pacific Summit visited MediaCorp on Tuesday for a television and radio workshop.

They were here as part of a nine-day programme of the Hwa Chong Asia-Pacific Young Leaders Summit 2014.

The students, aged 16 to 18, come from 13 countries and they were allowed to try their hands at acting, producing and deejaying.

This is the seventh year MediaCorp is participating in the summit.

The students will also visit other key installations, statutory boards and private organisations, including the Housing and Development Board, Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Government Investment Corporation, Land Transport Authority and the PUB.

Everett Sussman, a Staples High School student from the US, said: "It was a lot of fun because on top of getting to see how it all works, we got to see how the entire group interact and work together to create a finished product, and that was a great experience, I really enjoyed it."

Another student, Jahanvi Srinivasan from the Vasant Valley High School in India, said: "It was a really good experience, I learnt about how it was behind the scenes, and how it was for radio jockeys and work and stuff.

“I want to get into journalism anyway, so yes, maybe like being a radio jockey is something I would consider now."
