THE EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE
Enactus not only empowers the most disadvantaged individuals within our local and global communities; it also allows students to develop themselves both personally and professionally. I have witnessed the impact Enactus has had on countless lives around the world, and I could not be more proud to have been a part of this amazing organisation. The work these students do everyday, is nothing short of inspiring.Aldo Oosterman
I initially joined Enactus to do my part in socially motivated causes but gained much more along the way. Enactus strongly helped in developing my professional skills and I met many inspiring and motivated peers through this society. Enactus has truly been one of the best experiences I’ve had at university.Monisha Paromita
Being part of Enactus has meant learning the best ways possible – through experience and through the inspiring people you work with everyday.Regina O’Campo
Being in Enactus gave me a purpose, allowing me to have something to work towards and to give back to the community. Enactus drives real change at a grassroots level, and I am very proud to have been a part of it. Enactus also allowed me to meet amazing,like-minded people, and be part of a driven, supportive community. The very purpose of Enactus is to encourage creative thinking, and I loved that I was given space to find my own way through projects, yet I always, unfailingly, had the support of my team. The way in which Enactus encourages commercial skills with a community focus is unique, and has helped me grow enormously both professionally, and personally.Sarah Huang
