Since he was still wearing the white-blue uniform, Abim―that’s what he’s called―has had aspirations to teach. Now, when Abim has become a Computer Science Student at Universitas Padjadjaran and just fell in love with anything related to Android, he is still pursuing his little dream by carrying out the role of a lab assistant who teaches.
