The digital world provides unlimited space for expression and exploring creativity. Keenan explains that the digital era is present in our day, so inevitably everyone has to interact through the digital world. For him, the digital world is a source of inspiration and reference.
"As a digital player we have to be responsible for every content we create, we want the content created to be positive and inspire others to create similar works because good works should be enjoyed by everyone," Ernanda added.
Arief Muhammad said, the role he did for Indonesia is manifested by creating vlogs that explore various places in Indonesia that are not yet known to the general public. Through his vlog, Arief hopes people can recognize the diversity of Indonesia.
