    Of course I knew the 3 FMU DJs would provide good works, but my expectations were surpassed! Moreover, there were other great stories from WaHi people!

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
