Hi, I’m Ira Singh Sawant. I have always been fascinated by physics and outer space, from movies to school projects. Although many people confuse it with astronomy, my major is actually Astrophysics. As a first-year international student, I understand that I may not have as much experience as others, but I am willing to work hard and show promise. I am certain that by joining the ISSS team, I can support the science community to the best of my ability.
I have been a part of the volunteer team for the University of Alberta observatory since the Fall term. I am particularly interested in joining the executive team as I have experience in event planning, having organized various activities and competitions in high school. I have also been a part of various social organizations such as food distribution and distressed animal rescue shelters. Therefore, I believe that I would be a good fit for the VP of Programming or VP of Services positions.
I am excited to know ISSS better and contribute to its mission.
