Ms Kashika Gaurav

Resident Assistant Tembusu College National University of Singapore

Kashika is a third-year undergraduate majoring in Economics and Business Management. Her interests lay in various activities, not limited to, dance, football, baking, volunteering, playing the ukulele, photography, video production, and planning events, but most of all, she loves making people smile with her silly jokes and exciting conversations! Her door is always open, approach her if you want to be greeted with a smile and some warm milk tea and candy.

As an active student in the college, Kashika has not only taken part in the Exco of tBakes and TemBolly, but she also helped plan TWW as a Programmes Director. Additionally, she helps students of Tembusu turn their passions into events and interest groups as part of the College Student Committee. One of her favorite memories as part of CSC would be when she hosted a Dog Therapy in the college for the students and raised funds for the charity, Animal Lovers League. Watching the students interact with the dogs was a heartwarming experience; this developed her passion for event planning and led her to organize even more events in the college.                   

Always ready to learn new things and experience adventures, Kashika actively looks for challenges that push her out of her comfort zone. Catch her anywhere in the college to have a conversation; her extroverted soul is always excited to make a new friend!
