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

My role in college is to serve my college with all the achievements in the sports field as I entered my college through sports quota and to be an obedient student. My responsibility is to maintain the balance between my studies and sports so that none of them gets to suffer.

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

Since school time, I was not only engaged in studies but also involved in all kind of extracurricular activities, be it -sports, dance, music, art.  Everyone can't be a topper in academics, but they probably can excel in some other field which they must implement and try to figure out what is best for them. 
So by this, they can certainly make a good place in some good college by giving ECA trials .. so this is my approach towards having a good start for the future.

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

It's not actually about juggling it's on you how u take it either you enjoy it, or you just give up as you face difficulties, but the best part is to experience it.
One must try to learn and achieve from it rather than running away from such situations.

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

As I am an economics (Hons)student and a powerlifter for me giving time to studies is very difficult as I have to be focused more towards gym this is what I believed but what I learnt and realised is that both can be managed it's not always necessary to give extra time to one thing and neglect other.

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

My parents have been a great support in anything I do from dropping me to the stadium to build up my stamina to pick me up from there and drop me to tuitions when I was a teenager then when college life started it's like a second chapter for them too they still run with us for our admissions ..and most off all they are with us in whatever we do ..their contribution is always there we can never payback. But what we can give them is the results for which they would be very happy and at last what is more Important then parents happiness!
