Meet the team

simba

Yuvraj Singh
President

If Netflix and procrastination were a club, Yuvraj would be president of that club too. When he is not busy drowning in school work or junk food, he likes to curl up on his couch with a good book and some hot coffee before unintentionally spilling it on himself and ending up with fourth degree burns. Juggling 3rd year Communication courses with a Club can be challenging, but with an amazing team who tolerates his randomness, Yuvraj believes he can take SMN to new heights! Fun Fact: His nickname is Simba, but his twin’s name is not Nala.

Even in the toughest times, she believes that a smile and a positive attitude will help her and people around her feel hopeful and evolve over time.
