Currently an Arts and Communications student at Monash University Malaysia in Bandar Sunway, Aric Ting is also an active social media junkie, who not only runs his own radio show on campus, YouTube 100 Malaysia, but has interned with Groupon Malaysia as its social media representative early this year. In being picked for the US$10,000 gig, Ting beat a talented pool of entries from across Southeast Asia including Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines and Singapore and emerged the top candidate after a Google Hangout interview process with shortlisted potentials last week. Ting impressed MTV Asia with his creative and wacky social media resume. His role commencement is on 7 August till 16 August.
