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

I am the class representative of my class. As a CR you just need to update the whole class about the academic information that has been passed by teachers or management and more over represent the class if any group activity undergoes. Also CR represents the class in front of teachers and management committee in case there is any issue.

2. Do you enjoy the kind of influences you hold at such a young age ?

Yes, I enjoy a lot because it is very proud position to influence other for doing this work. It is not easy task to maintain this position. Alternatively, early development may be viewed as less amenable to parental influence

3. How can u encourage more young students such as yourself to take up leadership roles?

I never thought that being a CR will ever help me to know that I have that leadership qualities to make everything possible because at times I used to fear about making mistakes and criticism but all I did is to make a choice for myself and I am here. You are not less and when we talk about leadership it's within each one of us. It's just that we need to look for opportunities, grab it and work upon it until and unless we become a pro.

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

Juggling between a leadership role and normal college life, came across as challenging the task at first but with time and guidance from my seniors I have learnt to manage my time and prioritize my academics and co-curricular activities.

5. What have been some of your biggest challenges and learning from what you do?

Challenge is not biggest, but the way we choose to come out with challenge actually matters. If you are enough capable to take the right decision challenge may convert in a great opportunity.

6. What’s your message to encourage students to do internships and attend conferences?

Considering a significant number of employers value relevant work experience, internships are becoming mandatory to gain a career after college, even if it’s not required by a college or university. Encourage your students to make themselves competitive in the job market by getting an internship, joining professional organizations, and growing their professional contact base. With the increased importance of internships, encouraging students to pursue pre-graduation work has never been more important.
