Get to know ISASA's Secretary, Zorawar. Read on to find out what the role entails and how you can be a part of the unique and wonderful things the club does.
1. What club are you in? Indian Students Assembly of South Australia (ISASA)
2. Are there any additional clubs that you are involved with?
UniSA Sport (Activator)
3. What are you studying? Did it influence the club you joined?
I study a Master of Architecture. It did not influence the club I joined but how I joined it. I got involved with ISASA as the Design Lead last year and this year I moved on to become the Secretary.
4. Why did you join this club?
Being an international student from India, I had a natural interest in the club and its functions. I was also amazed at how much non-Indian students liked and wanted to know more about the Indian culture. This was a major influential factor for me to be a part of ISASA and spread the knowledge and awareness through the club. That is why, even though it is the Indian Students Assembly, but the club is open to all students regardless of wherever they are from.
5. What's your role on the club executive? Explain.
I started as the Design Lead wherein my main role was to handle the creative part of the club including posters and ideas for various events. With time and experience, my participation in the club meetings and decisions became more central and hence I was elected as the Secretary of ISASA this year. As a Secretary, I now ensure that the club runs smoothly and I take care of all the correspondence of the club. I also manage the members database and make sure that ISASA is compliant with USASA's rules at all times.
6. What's the best thing about being a part of a club?
The best part about being a part of a club at UniSA for me is the opportunity to meet and interact with new people through various clubs events and activities.
7. How can other students get involved in your club?
It is quite easy to be a part of ISASA. One can join through the USASA clubs page, or reach out to us directly through any of our social media pages (Facebook or Instagram)
8. Have you gained new friends or made new connections through being in a club?
Yes! I have met several new people and made new connections through club events like Campus Fair, USASA clubs welcome, and Awards Night
9. What achievement are you most proud of?
Keeping the club cohesive!
10. What colour best represents your personality and why?
Black! I think that the colour has a certain level of mystery to itself, it is bold, elegant and at the same time goes with everything!
11. What would you like to get out of being in a club?
Apart from new friends and connections, I would like to build my personality with traits like teamwork, leadership, time management and the sense of giving back to society by volunteering at various events.
12. If you could start any club what would it be?
I would rather try to keep improving ISASA :)
