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

My college life started in 2019. I’ve been a part of a globally recognized society called Enactus which worked for social entrepreneurship. I’ve been a part of the Political Science core team as well. Basic functions included bringing sponsorships as well as guest lectures on a monthly basis. I was also an Event head for the debating competition and handled everything from participants, competition, the arrangement of venue, and taking care of the finances. I also was a part of the Annual Fest of JMC called Montage and I was responsible for the duty of stalls. We had to contact various startups who would be willing to put up stalls at our fests at a fixed price.

2. How did you rise up to your position and how can a student aspiring the same, approach it?

First and foremost, I’ve seen rejections at every stage of my life and I think we should normalize this. What matters is the dedication you have and the hard work and not your result. If someone rejects you, be strong enough to be twice as hardworking and work on your weak areas. Look for opportunities everywhere!

3. What have been some of your biggest challenges and learnings from what you do?

Time management has been one of the biggest challenges as I had to manage my studies as well as Extracurriculars. Apart from that, there’s always a difference of opinion which is generally healthy but sometimes becomes too much. The learnings I took were from my seniors who managed everything very patiently and also to be respectful to your juniors as well. Just because you’re a senior does not give anyone a chance to humiliate as that’s not going to help you in the long run.

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

I practically became a social entrepreneur and I helped the underprivileged in so many ways. Initially, I thought it’s a booster for my CV but when I did something for them and they had a smile on their faces, it really made me happy and proud of myself.

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

Internships and conferences are an important part of a student’s life since they help you become a better version of yourselves. Personal growth, communication skills, and specific skills which you always wanted to learn can be grasped through such opportunities. Don’t always look for a stipend, instead look for the experience and exposure an internship/conference will give you.
