My name is Shivam Persad, and I am a prospective medical student here at IAUCOM, currently enrolled in the 4th Semester of the Pre-Medicine Programme. Having undertaken the position of Assistant Treasurer within the ISA IAUCOM, I have found so many like-minded individuals, who share my passions and hobbies, such as having debates or playing sports, all whilst respecting and engaging in the practice of my religion (Hinduisim). These factors have created a sense of unison amongst our group's members, to such an extent that I consider them all to be my family. This sentiment is felt the strongest when we unite for one of our numerous occasions, my favourite of which, would have to be the "Pie On Your Face" event thus far. I proudly believe that being an integral member of this group will aid in my future goal of becoming a Paediatrician, and I can safely say that despite being many islands away from my homeland, I can now call this place home.
