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

Being a student, my ultimate responsibility is to work hard and learn. Also, to give time and devotion to my passion. My role is to set myself as an epitome for professionally chasing my dreams of being in the Medical Field but also cling over the passion for Music.

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

It all starts with dreams and ends with the importance you give to that dream of yours. When I look around, I always find that people choose between a lot of options to become one sophisticated professional at a particular thing. But, in this era and generation of people born with multiple talents and the ’80s, 90’s legends who grab degree over different streams and fields really motivated me about the fact that a man can do wonders if he is determined to do so.

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

While I talk about my voice. I have a husky, grainy voice because I had throat infection during my fifth grade which changed my voice texture. I was called out a lot of times about my voice, claiming that I had a “male voice". And a woman should never sound this husky! I always felt like an outcast among the choir that I was apart of. People never really loved to accept the different quality of voice I had. And it took a while for me to come out of the depression and Worthlessness I felt. I realized that "It's not about how people look at you for being different , but it's all about how you look at yourself."

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

"Accepting myself, the way I am" made me proud of myself the most. Because I think the awards and the honor people give, someday may perish. But honor that I give myself, the dignity I keep within me, make me do wondrous things.

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

Do give it a shot, as it meant for improving yourself. 
"The world will ask you to chase one dream when your little mind has numerous dreams. But you don't chase one. You create those numerous dreams into reality."
