1. Outline your relevant experience for this position

  • I was logistics Sub-head of cultural festival of my previous college and was responsible for managing 40 students to work towards smooth execution of events in the festival.
  • I was also logistics Sub-head of an event called Social Conclave, which was affiliated to UNICEF. Was referred to as “the backbone of the conclave” by the chairperson.
  • Part of the organization team of first Social Conclave (affiliated to UNFPA). Did an excellent job and hence was promoted the next year.
  • Was house captain in high school and led my house to finish second in the annual points table.
  • Managed multiple events with an event management company and turned a huge profit for them.
  • Worked closely with different organizations like student council, alumni association, social impact, etc. at my previous college.

2. What specific initiatives and projects would you undertake related to this role?

Major projects and initiatives would include organizing open discussions and awareness weeks throughout the year. Focusing on community engagement, promoting campus spirit, and addressing student needs.

3. How do you plan on facilitating positive work relationships within the UWSA Board, members at large and UWindsor administration?

Building strong relationship within an organization is one the most important aspects according to me due to many reasons. So, I will facilitate positive work relationships by encouraging members by doing the following:

  • Encouraging effective communication, that is, encouraging everyone to actively listen to others while considering their viewpoints and not just talking about their own views.
  • Developing trust and consistency between every member, so that they can work happily and with satisfaction, and talk to me when they have an issue or when they need something. I would also consistently strive to be trustworthy and act supportively towards them.
  • Having a positive attitude even when we will have a stressful day or have a deadline coming up. This inspires everyone to be effective even in stressful situations.

4. Describe the importance of the UWSA in your own words

I think UWSA is very important because it acts like a link between university and the student body. It is an integral part of the university as enhances student experience at the university. Also, it is an organization which students can go to when they have any issues or problems at large.
