Why did you engage yourself in the Charity Club?
Charitable deeds have always been a custom, a way of life for my family. Since I was a young girl, I’ve
always been involved in charity works: making sandwiches for the homeless and hungry, donating
toys, and even visiting soup kitchens with my grandma. As I grew older, charitable actions became second
nature for me. Personally, it’s a fitting club to engage with as I enjoy the sentiment that goes with helping
those in need.
What is the purpose of this club?
The purpose of The Charity Club is to extend a helping hand to those in need (e.g., the food drives).
It also encourages students towards a healthier lifestyle, with, for example, the anti-smoking and anti-drinking campaigns that are about to start. With that said, I think The Charity Club is concerned with alms-giving and promoting the welfare of the students.
Why do you think charity work is important in a university?
Charity work is essential for a university for the simple reason that such activities cultivate a sense of
community and mission while promoting public benefit.
Also, extra-curricular activities like volunteering can help students with time management and improve their emotional well-being.
Why have you chosen to study at IUM?
An MSc in Marketing of Luxury Goods & Services from IUM will provide me with the theoretical foundation and
support me in cultivating the networks needed towards achieving my international career aspirations and goals.
