Vote for me

Many student leaders admit that their growth as leaders is aided by a combination of responsibility and mentorship. I pursued leadership with a similar clarity: “I wanted to serve, and I wanted to belong.”

Serving diverse graduate students

"Serve as a voice and an agent of change in making the student society more accepting and supportive," I feel is part of my duty. When it came to the practicalities of gaining one's footing, most leaders took small steps. "I started small, becoming active on campus, and then applied to situations I observed on a worldwide scale." My mindset was and continues to be that I only have so many years left as a student, and I want to make the most of every learning opportunity that comes my way."

Graduate Student’s Society (GSS)

The Graduate Students' Society (NUSGSS) grew from a 16 member core team to a 75 member team comprising of Interest groups, Placement team, Internship team, Alumni mentorship, the Graduate student representatives, Mission India team, and other projects. We initially started with identifying the unique talents and skillsets of our ExCo members and designed the events and initiatives that synergize with our vision, this way we were able to do an impactful job, happily.

A leader needs to dream a vision, communicate the vision and persuade his/her team to live that dream. I have learned a lot of life lessons through this impeccable journey. GSS is an opportunity for leaders to learn soft skills which are not generally thought in Academia and this was the best playground I got to play.
