Throughout our entire academic lives we have heard of the importance of extra curricular activities. When I was in high school I joined every student organization that sounded like it could get me into a notable university. Now that I’ve made it to RU I’ve realized that I can actually join clubs that I’m interested in.
This year I joined Rutgers Bhangra team. It has been one of the most enjoyable experiences for me. I’m not only a part of a team- but a family.
This past weekend I had the honor of being a part of my first event as a member of the Association of Punjabis at Rutgers (APRU). This event, Bhangra on the Banks 3, was a smashing success and attracted over 400 people. The feeling of being a part of the few who actually made this happen was so rewarding. I’ve met some of the best people at Rutgers through this club.
I have become a part of organizations that I truly enjoy being a part of. I love the feeling of knowing that I have accomplished something and become a part of something I truly love. I encourage you all to find something you’re passionate about and do the same.
Thank you for giving me this opportunity Rutgers.
