Sobin Sojan - Vice President Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences


What are your campaigns/ what would you like to achieve for students this year? 

I want to introduce an application called UMII which is a university-based app, helping students to make friends at university. It helps in eliminating cultural differences and brings students together from diverse backgrounds. Image sharing, standard messages, facetime are some of the key features.

I would love to hear from you all, what your thoughts are about this.!


Why are you passionate about this project idea? 

Students have told us that it can at times be challenging to connect with other fellow students and have a feeling of self-isolation and left alone. Students are integrated in their own circle of friends, and it gets difficult for them to meet new people with same interests as them at universities.


What's your ultimate ARU moment? 

In all honesty, the best ARU moment for me was running for the election and taking up this role as the current elected Vice President of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences. I believe, this role as a sabbatical officer is once in a lifetime experience.

Where do you see yourself in 5 years’ time? 

My career plan for the next five years is to push myself to excel in every challenge I am faced with and take on more and more responsibility. I look forward to learning new skills and improve my knowledge, professionally and individually.


Share your three things on your bucket list: 

Bungee Jumping - Bungee Jumping from Bloukrans Bridge, Western Cape, South Africa (216 metres) above the Bloukrans River.

Skydiving – To jump from Mount Everest, Nepal. Take the leap of a lifetime as you jump out of a plane with your tandem instructor or go for a free fall from Mount Everest. This is not only the highest drop zone in the world, but also the most scenic, courtesy the views of the mighty Himalayas.

Hot Air Balloon rides - One of the world's most famous hot air balloon rides is over Cappadocia's fairy chimney rock formations, Cappadocia, Turkey


Tell us something not many people know about you:

I am a social and an outgoing person, makes friends easily yet I like to give myself some time alone. I love going on long road trips, being with the mountains and high clouds is just my thing!


If you had a super power what would it be??
