“It is a matter of great pride and honour for our students to win at such an event since the winners are widely recognised and respected in the industry,” said Dr Parida.

“The victory shows RMIT’s contribution and commitment to shaping its students who are the future of Vietnam's creative industry.”

RMIT Professional Communication students Nguyen Minh Thy and Ho Vu Phuong Uyen won Gold in the Digital Category.

Their challenge was to create a campaign to raise awareness and drive actions for Google's Digital 4.0 workshops among women living in rural areas.

They impressed the jury by challenging a popular social belief – that women needed to ‘marry up’ for a better life – , which is what they identified as a cause that was holding Vietnamese women back.

These students, driven by their passion for marketing and communication, managed to transform their initial idea into a final presentation in just 48 hours.

“Young Lions gave us a chance to step out of our comfort zone and was a great opportunity for us to use our creativity to make an impact on Vietnamese community,” said Uyen.
