“I started singing since I was 5 because I know many musicians thanks to the side of my mom’s family, but I really got into singing since I was 9. I participated in a singing competition when I was 10, I feel comfortable in singing and it fits me so much.”
“I’ve always been singing and dancing since I was a kid, so I’d like to try something new, hence I decided to join the group.”
“The three of us come from different cities, Bandung, Medan and Jakarta. However, it wasn’t really hard to build the relationship. To maintain the communication, we often talk in the WhatsApp group and visit each other’s city sometimes whenever we have a days off. As we always do dancing and singing practice in Jakarta, we use the time to hang out and bond, so yeah it’s been good.”
