1. Tell us more about your role and responsibilities at your club.
Hey, Myself S Sai Sharan, I have been a member of Rotaract club and campus2community since 2019, it all happened when my best friend made me visit a social activity, wherein I felt like working for the respective NGO and club, so it led me to become a member of these clubs respectively. 
As I joined Rotaract I started visiting social events which made me aware of the responsibilities being undertaken by an individual to make the world a better place to live in, so both Rotaract and campus2community are two different clubs wherein both the clubs had a common set of goals that are improving the society. 
As a member, I was a part of a lot of events wherein I learnt a lot of stuff like leadership qualities, team building capability, public speaking and mainly a passion to serve the society and many more. So as of now, being a member has taught me a lot about being responsible, but I believe that there is a lot more to learn in future with a bigger position. The most basic thing I learnt was to have patience and learn a few things at a time. Being a part of social clubs not only helped me serve the society but it also helped me enhance my qualities and capabilities. 
In college, I am a volunteer at the cultural committee and this has helped me grow into a better person as I learnt how to communicate with different kinds of people irrespective of their backgrounds, it helped me enhance my leadership qualities as well and it has helped me grow into a better human being and a better part of society.

2. How did you rise up to your position and how can a student aspiring the same approach it?
In the beginning, it was so good to be welcomed by the clubs and working with  the basic structures of the club made me realize that my potential at the right time would help a lot to the society. 
So for almost a year, I spent learning new things, exploring stuff and  gaining new ideas and with all this, the clubs have supported a lot, it made me recognize my purpose, for any aspiring student it's just that they have to get passion towards it and should explore everything at the right age and being dedicated is the main part of this exposure so when the opportunities willing to give a chance it’s time to grab it and give it a hundred per cent and in the end, I would ask everyone to follow their hearts and do the right thing at the right time.

3. What’s it like to juggle between leadership and normal college life?
See, basically, it's not about feeling burdened by defining your role as a leader with your normal college life, it's about balance and composure,  when you have a responsibility to do big and become a great leader it wouldn’t and will never feel like it’s a hell a lot of work, it’s the time management for both roles what you are in, there would be times where you ll have work all day long and study all night long for the next day examination but as a student its just management of time and proper scheduling of things.

4. Do you enjoy the kind of influence you hold at such a young age?
Yes, I definitely enjoy influencing people for their betterment as well as mine, so in life, it's just the matter of how influential you were when you were given a chance, that will give value to my life as well as others.

5. How do your parents look at you participating in extracurricular activities?
My parents are proud of me getting indulged in social work or any such because as a parent they would be really happy to see a child improve society, so there were a lot of days when I used to wake up early and indulge in a lot of Rotaract events. My parents have played a huge role and appreciated me to become what I am today.

6. What are the top skills that you have learnt with what you do?
Top skills cannot be shortened by saying a few because as a leader you should be capable of managing everything possible. Rotaract has taught me a lot about being and putting up a great work for society. And I would be glad to say that every skill I have learnt has been a top skill. 

7. How can we encourage more young students such as yourself to take up leadership roles?
Students are surrounded by a lot of opportunities and we as a society should teach them to grab the right opportunity which is fit for them. We should teach these young students that leadership is being impartial and spreading equality and being dominant does not make anyone a leader. 
We should teach the younger generation to respect the ideas of a team and that’s what makes an individual a successful leader. We should encourage them by giving importance to their ideas and thoughts and we have to let them be expressive in nature.

8. Do you have any message to the parents about allowing their kids to do what they are passionate about.
For parents, a piece of advice is to let their children do what they like and what they are passionate about. Who knows one day they may be the one who the world wants, just help them by supporting their growth.

9. What’s your message to encourage students to do internships and attend conferences?
Students should be very enthusiastic to learn new things, and internships and conferences are such platforms which provide a
 lot of insights about the career options available for the newer generation. These internships and conferences help the students in building the set of skills required to pave the right path in order to achieve their goals and ambitions.
