2022 President

President's Address

180DC is one of those societies where every cycle, you learn and are always rewarded with something different- whether it is working with a new client, being in a new role or just working with different teams. From joining as a clueless consultant in my first year of uni in 2019 to being a Project Leader, Consulting Director and then creating the role of the Vice President of People & Culture, it is safe to say that 180DC has been one of the if not the most important part of my development throughout my university experience.

 

What I love most about 180DC is the incredible network of students and alumni you get to meet once you join. I am constantly amazed by everyone’s humility, intelligence and genuine passion to drive social impact. No matter who you talk to, everyone is extremely open to helping each other out, whether it may be 180DC related or not. On top of that, being part of the world’s largest student consultancy for non-for-profits and social enterprises means that your contribution throughout every cycle makes a significant impact on the growth and potential of both organizations and people in need.

 

As President, my vision for 2022 is to continue growing the next generation of exceptional and socially conscious leaders- and more specifically, to make all 180DC members socially fulfilled, well-equipped and professionally well-regarded. Given that this is also my final year of university, I am excited to make this year the best yet, and I’d love for anyone who is interested in joining this year to reach out to me at any time.
