Where You Belong

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.
