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

Being the President of Vociferous Vocationals -the Vocational society of College of vocational studies, my role is to work for the betterment and upliftment of vocational courses and to make proper plans of action for the same. I always ensure all the members, whether new or old, learn something new and realise their true potential by developing  various skills and taking up new challenges.

2) What's it like to juggle between a leadership role and normal college life?

One can never have the best of both worlds, I suppose. I have to miss some classes and compromise on attendance, and I'm also required to stay back and come early for society work, very often. It has never really hampered my academics, credit goes to my fellow teammates and family for the same, of course. 

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

I only hope I'm able to inspire an astounding number of students. One should stop at nothing in order to be successful and happy, and that's what my aim in life is too. 

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

As Laszlo Polgar once said, an individual possesses about 40 talents. 
In today's world, equal importance is given to academics and extra-curricular activities. Where extra-curricular activities develop personality and help in overall holistic growth, a good standing in academics contributes to the permanent development of the child. Parents should fully support and encourage their children to fly, polishing their wings at every step. 

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

Working in various societies, holding pivotal positions etc, have together certainly made me more confident. I've faced many difficult situations, but I've always tried to face them strongly to protect and embellish the name of my society. 

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

Internships provide practical experience along with knowledge which is a must for every student. They're also important to gain an experience in the career field one wants to pursue, making students more professional and ready for the corporate world. Except that, the fun is unimaginable. I have done various internships and have learned something new and different from all of them, which is why I believe it's important to lay enough emphasis on the same. Not to forget, the conferences which come as a bonus, allow us to interact with absolutely lovely intellectuals and the entire learning process during the same is unparalleled.
