Tell us more about your role & responsibilities at your college.

As I Hold the role Vice-President of my college and this comes up with a lot of responsibilities and that comes with a lot of Integrity. My main responsibility lands up to the proper well-functioning of my college and according to me, all of the role and responsibilities lands up on the Integrity. I strongly believe that Integrity is the seed for achievement and it is the principle that never fails and It really helps me to come up with all the responsibilities I have.



What's it like to juggle between a Leadership role and normal college life?

Honestly I don't really juggle between them much or I would say that I am much habitual now like from being a class monitor for years then the council head in the final years of school then now holding a huge responsibility of being the Vice-president of the college, I believe that I am very habitual to this and even when I have the core pressure or I feel that I am grinding between them both, I usually take it as a privilege, like this is what I am here for. And Leadership is simply the ability to get extraordinary achievements from the ordinary chances, it’s just how you balance.



Do you enjoy the kind of influence you hold at such a young age?

I would be lying if I will say no, yes of course I do and even I feel blessed that people really appreciate the kind of influence I share with everyone. And I always try my level best to keep it as positive as possible. I believe that being positive and optimistic is the core point to be a good influence. And like it is said, they key to successful leadership today is influence, not authority. So, one should be positive enough to see everything rationally.




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

I would definitely request the parents to tell their children to participate in all the activities, not for winning or losing it but the experience. Academics will always help but the kind of confidence and motivation you get from indulging yourself in various activities cannot be reciprocated. It is very important to let the kids decide for themselves and parents should always motivate them whether they want to dance, sing, act or they want to write stories, poems even if they want to paint and do the art & craft work. Parents should always motivate the kids and they should always be supportive no matter what.


What did you do in your current role that makes you feel really proud of yourself?

I am a human and I do fall, make mistakes, cry and crib and I go through all the moods but definitely to get up and stand for my responsibilities and do my work irrespective of all the trying circumstances. I feel good when I'm always there wherever and whenever I'm needed and to stand up for the right and point the wrong. It gives me pleasure to fulfil all my duties with all my hard work and dedication and lastly my integrity is my strength.




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

I would say all the textual education will help us but It will just help us up to certain extent like our experience is our best friend and It always help us to bring out the best. And there's no better way than to do the internships, attend the conferences and indulge ourselves in these activities will give us a lot of information and experience that will help us even when we'll have the lack of textual information.

The Internships and Conferences will help us to develop PROFESSIONAL SKILLS, KNOWLEDGE, COMMUNICATION SKILLS, EXPERIENCE AND CONFIDENCE.


So, we should always grab all the golden chances, these experiences will enhance our resumes for better future opportunities.
