Why are you the best candidate for this position
I have been a Project lead from the period November 2019 till March 2020. I managed a 3 day Project named Compass'20, which took place from 7th to 9th Feb 2020. It was a camping-based event with 49 participants from around Pakistan. I was representing Youth Impact, which organized the event for the organization 'Akhuwat' in Akhuwat University Kasur. The event involved a one-day trip to old Lahore where the participants were made to do activities in teams. I was responsible for the overall completion of the Project including managing finance, logistics, and guests. The details of the event are below:
Moreover, I have been Vice President in 2019-20 and President in 2020-21 of LUMS Religious Society (LRS). These roles involved interacting with and engaging different departments in order to conduct an event. LRS usually conducted 1 event every two weeks, and I was majorly involved in executing nearly all the events that have happened in my time. These events also includes Maulana Tariq Jameel's Bayans at LUMS which attracts huge audiences.
Other than these major organizing roles, I have been part of minor organizing roles at a number of Youth Impact conferences (which are mainly in the wilderness). Namely, Compass'18, Markhor'19, Markhor'20
By being the Project Lead for Compass'20, it was my responsibility to deliver a speech both at the opening and closing ceremonies. I had never before spoke to an audience from a stage. Although my speech was not fluid and smooth, I managed to face my fears and deliver what I wanted to say. A huge part of the credit goes to my team members who encouraged me all the way. This is why I was much more confident and comfortable in the speaking at the closing ceremony than at the opening.
Moreover, I also had the responsibility of keeping coordination between different teams in the event. For example, on the campsite, I had to make sure that the Training and Development Research team (who planned the event) was on board with the Operations team (who executed the plan). So, I had to take regular updates from both team leaders and sometime even pass on messages from one the the other. This greatly improved my ability to listen carefully and talk precisely.
In short, being the Project Lead forced me out of my comfort zone to confront and interact with people (which I usually dont do). Through this, I am much more composed than before in speaking both publicly and individually.
Being in a leading position for 2 years in LUMS Religious Society (LRS) has also gradually built in me good interpersonal skills. LRS is divided into departments like marketing, logistics, design, media, publications etc. Being part of the Executive Council, I had ensure smooth communication between the departments and also of the departments with the EC. Because we organized events once or twice in 2 weeks, we had to be in touch with each other nearly every day. the main source of communication was WhatsApp but we had meetings on-campus to plan future events. In 2020, this shifted to Zoom meetings nearly every week and led by me. I developed the skill to convey messages shortly and keep meeting short and productive. One way i used to do this was share the agenda of a meeting to be held with the members so everyone knew what was going to be discussed. This saved much time and effort for me in the past one and a half year.
