What Attendees Say

Thank you [keynote speaker] Jason [Chin] for these great insights. I have always enjoyed illustrations alongside the stories in a book. Today, Jason has given me another reason to pay closer attention [to] the meaning they add to the story.

This interview is so fun. I commend the moderator, Ms. Denise Tan. She really does her thing and researched a lot about the speaker. Also, Ms. Christina is so genuine and honest about everything she says. <3
