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

This is Yashika, currently pursuing B.Sc. forestry in Doon business school. Being a nature enthusiast, and for my care and concern for nature and environment I chose this field. Talking about my roles and responsibilities in my college, they'll only come when I know that I myself am accountable for my academic success. I am honest and punctual and I never stop trying hard to achieve even the smallest of my goals. Determination is one thing that I have inculcated in myself. As a student I also have a positive competitive spirit as it helps me complete all my tasks by fair means. 

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?

Being what I am today took a lot of courage and perseverance. I always had faith in myself and I never quit on facing hardships as that was a part of it. Rightly said, "Life is not a bed of roses", hence I faced the obstacles that came my way in a very positive spirit and always strived to complete everything with par excellence despite the challenges. For any student they must be aware of the powers they actually have and they shouldn't get diverted by any inconvenience they face. Trying will always lead a student to success. 

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

Managing sports and studies was the biggest challenge that I had to face. But managing time and prioritizing my duties lead me to success. It isn't easy at all to manage two completely different things at a time but by trusting your inner capabilities you can achieve anything. 

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

Sports gave me a broader scope towards life. I got to experience so much because of my active participation in sports. I qualified to represent myself and my school at regional level. I haven't got a chance in my college to showcase my ability but if I do get one I will prove myself. Sports has made me proud because qualifying till regionals is a hard task and not many people get that chance. Having certificates and medals is something that I will cherish forever and be proud of always. 

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

Doing internships and attending conferences and webinars actually does boost your morale. It gives you a lot of knowledge and you get to learn a lot from the experiences of other people of your very age. It helps you discover your talents and helps you excel at certain fields. It makes you a better individual.
