Franklin, on the other hand, revealed that he’s hesitant about it at first, considering that it requires a lot of money.

 “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.”

Fortunately, Deputy Chief Minister Tan Sri Datuk Amar James Masing and Assistant Minister for Youth and Sports Datuk Snowdan Lawan helped him.

Snowdan even said:

“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.”
