Shivani Amin
Hi, I’m Shivani, a first-year econ student and I’ll be running for Vice President. Although this year hasn’t been the first year, we freshers had imagined, being part of committee as an FYR really helped me to see the potential future years are able to have. Gaining an inside understanding of how the society is run and how events could potentially be planned allowed me to recognise the commitment required to be part of a society. Being an FYR truly turned my first year around, the sense of community Indian Society has created within and outside the committee genuinely amazed me and I plan to continue this on a much larger scale next year. I am an all-rounded individual with good organisational, communication and time management skills which are vital skills for a VP. I am committed to make next year’s events unforgettable!
Anjali Parmar
I’m a first year medic, first year rep, and if you like what you read, one of next year’s vice presidents! As an FYR this year I’ve gained some valuable experience, for example, I helped design this year’s IndianSoc website and plan the zoom socials. It’s been great to get to know the current committee members and I feel I have a deep understanding of what is needed to run the society. I also believe I have a versatile skill set that is needed to be VP. My sociable nature and enthusiasm will allow me to interact with people on all levels, from external sponsors to the incoming freshers. I’m naturally a planner too, someone who’s willing to invest the time to work on the logistical side of things when it comes to organising events. I’m confident I can contribute new ideas to the committee and be the go-to person for when you have any suggestions or concerns. One of my aims would be to ensure that next year's events run smoothly and that there are smaller, more casual events to attend. I’d like to introduce sportswatching nights, as a way to get together to watch big PL games and this year's T20 world cup. A big priority for me is to make sure there is something for everyone, so I’d look to use social media polls regularly to find out what members would like to see happen throughout the year. Alongside the president I’m keen to lead from the front, assist other committee members and most importantly, make sure that next year is as fun and lively as what it was pre-COVID times!
Ragul Gajendran
Hey! I’m Ragul, I’m a first year Econ student and I’m running to be Vice President. Leadership and organisation are significant aspects of the successful running of society events, and require a role that needs a reliable person with experience in connecting with a range of people and acting as a liaison between committee and society members. I believe I solely have the key skills to delegate the workload amongst my fellow committee members all the while introducing new fun ideas for events and club activities. I hate to sit here bragging on all my experience such as when led a sixth form event last year called HighLifeEvents where I raised over £3000. Rather I would like to continue the successful running of popular events such as Jashn and Dhamaal as well as building upon these events and expanding the society. I know everyone’s hungry for social interaction being locked up in their homes and accommodations this last month. However I expect to change that for you guys next year, increasing the capacity and of events by connecting with new students and increasing the outreach of events, so all of us finally have the chance to party harder and get more involved with culture such as in India week. Being a current FYR gave me a great insight into Indian soc and how fun it is working as a close-knit, family-like committee and its so gratifying. As VP I ensure every student will have the craziest, most fun packed year yet! VOTE FUN! VOTE RAGUL!
