Indu is a junior majoring in Industrial & Systems Engineering. She is originally from San Ramon, California. She is the 2021 Panhellenic President, as well as a member of Gamma Phi Beta. Before she was president, she was the Vice President of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion. For her, the most important part of being Panhellenic president is her executive board. “Especially during the pandemic, it is hard to feel like you are at USC especially being at home. However, my executive board has given me this feeling. I always want to make them feel like they have the proper support they need.” She describes her leadership style as the servant leadership style: her goal with this style is to listen to her community and provide them with the proper resources. She tells us that being a leader of such a large group of women is the most empowering thing she could have done in college. Being able to lead and support people makes her happy.
She says that the Panhellenic community helps to empower women because: “It helps you build a support system - the most empowering thing is knowing you have so many hardworking driven women who have your back. It is a support system in every single aspect - there are women with diverse interests there is always someone who will match one of those interests in your house.” Some fun facts about her are that she is a powerlifter and a second-degree black belt. Her advice to those thinking about going through recruitment is: “ Have an open mind and just remember you have the opportunity to meet all of these amazing girls. You can still be friends with girls in other houses.” Her advice to future Trojans is: “Get involved USC is very different from other campuses in terms of student involvement. People are so involved even outside their majors - that will help you through your own personal growth. Take advantage of the people you are around.”
