According to Lobak Merah, the 20-year-old teen was one of the top three candidates selected to present his idea on semi-solar electric generation to a panel of judges in Austria. Another two candidates were a process engineer from Germany and design engineer from South Korea.

“When I first received the offer, I was having second thoughts because I know it requires a lot of money to be able to travel to Austria for the presentation,” Franklin said.

Luckily, he received help from Tan Sri Datuk Amar James Masing (Deputy Chief Minister) and Datuk Snowdan Lawan (Assistant Minister for Youth and Sports) who made the journey possible.

“The Ibans are very proud of Franklin and our support means a lot to him. We’re proud because there are a lot of talented Sarawakians and he’s one of them who got to sign the contract with BMW,” Snowdan said. 

It was understood that Franklin will receive an official letter in two weeks’ time and will be flying to Munich in March 2019 to sign the 10-year contract. Under this agreement, he will be BMW’s automotive technology expert starting 2021. Bestnyerrr!

Franklin admitted that there is a lot of preparation to do and a long way to go. Right now, his main priority is to complete his studies in UNIMAS by 2020.
