Three years ago, I started off volunteering at the Indian Student Federation as the FIC representative. As a new international student, I did not have the confidence to talk to other students, but now I’ve built a great transferable set of marketing and communication skills and can represent my country with pride.
One of the most exciting and memorable moments in this club was the first cultural event we ever held. We celebrated Diwali: Celebration of Lights along with more than 200 students from SFU. It was amazing to have been able to gather that many students together to celebrate one of India's major festivals!
