Student Leader Interview: Ayush Bansal from SRCC (University of Delhi)

Tell us more about your role and responsibilities in your society?

I am Ayush, the Secretary at D-Street Society, the only stock market-oriented society of Delhi University. As a part of this society, our concern is to make others aware of the financial market and to grow their interest in this sphere. And to achieve the same, we do conduct research sessions and other fun activities to deepen their knowledge and explore more about the market.

What's it like to juggle between a leadership role and normal college life.

College life is not limited to academics but rather its the platform to explore and discover new things about yourself. Being a part of this society, I grow as an individual and learn to take up responsibilities and duties. No wonder, in this process, even the leadership roles become part of the normal college life. In fact, the challenges become the day to day task, but this is how we grow and nurture ourselves.

As a leader at D-Street, what challenges did you face and how did you overcome them?

The different roles do bring challenges and opportunities along with it. Interestingly, my role at D-Street is nothing short of those elements. The foremost thing is that these challenges help me to come out of comfort zone. Initially, I do lack confidence and ability to trust my skills but eventually, as time went through, I have started seeing a positive change in me. These roles have made me tougher and mature to understand problems from the other side of the table.

What are your career goals and how is your present role going to help you with that?

I am much more inclined towards finance and constantly working towards it to succeed. And D-Street has played an active role by introducing me with this field and still helping me to learn new things every day. But still, I haven't decided my career yet as I'm still exploring myself and abilities to juggle across different things as I don't want to restrict myself to one thing.

How can we encourage young students such as yourself to take-up leadership roles?

Being the leader and to take up leadership roles, one needs to learn the art to assume the responsibilities and accountability of the work. One needs to understand that before you become a leader, the person needs to develop the skills to motivate, guide and give a workable approach to others. And if you are taking these things into consideration then you can call yourself a leader.

Do you have a message for parents to allow their kids to do things besides academics?

Education has never meant to be academics only, rather it is concerned with the overall development of ones. Academics can provide us the rational and logical mind to understand variables of life but engaging in other curriculum activities will ease out the entire process of learning. Blending academics with the other curriculum tasks is the perfect fabric to succeed in future and to juggle well in every sphere of life.

What's your message to encourage students to do internships and attend conferences?

What I believe that internship is necessary to have the practical and actual work experience as it helps to bridge the gap between the theoretical and practical side of the academics. But at the same time, we need to realize that internship should justify our time and should provide us with the experience, otherwise such internships platform are of no use.
