Fery Afandy, one of the 31 mentees expressed his pride because his team won first place. They did not expect that they would achieve the best results because during training there were many obstacles, ranging from discipline, solidarity, to teamwork. "We are proud because we won first place and did not expect it before. Maybe because of the traditional concept that we took, namely the Leak Dance, which led us to achieve that achievement. The judges also commented that our performance showed totality, hard work, solidarity and creativity, "said Fery after his team won the Champion.
Besides giving championships to the talents who appeared, the Perbanas Got Talent 2016 event was also a night of appreciation for the mentees who managed to creatively make a unique and interesting piggy bank from recycled waste.

The CEO of Stars Media, Ficky A. Hidajat said that the Super Softskill Mentoring event which explores these talents is very good for students. This is because not all higher education institutions accommodate the creativity of students to be channeled through positive activities. In addition to talent search, Ficky assessed that this activity can foster students' self-confidence when communicating with other people. "Their Self Confidence will be nurtured so that their communication skills will become more proficient. This will help them (students) in finding and joining the world of work. So, the Super Softskill Mentoring activity needs to be improved again for next year so that the talents of these students are explored and channeled properly, "he concluded after the event. (Eko)
