Hello TNTSA! My name is Alina Sikandar, and I am currently a Senior at Collierville high school. I am thrilled and deeply honored to serve as your Sergeant-at-Arms .
My journey with TSA began during my freshman year, thanks to the encouragement of my older peers who noticed my passion for STEM. Although I was initially hesitant, I soon fell in love with the organization. TSA has given me not only the opportunity to compete but also the chance to forge lasting friendships and create cherished memories. Some of my closest friends today are those I made through TSA.
Over the years, my love for TSA has grown, and so has my desire to contribute more to the organization. This led me to apply for the position of state officer. My favorite TSA competitions include children’s stories and extemporaneous speaking, where I've had the chance to showcase my skills and creativity.
Beyond TSA, my interests are diverse and eclectic. I have a passion for photography, enjoy delving into the Marvel universe and anime, find joy in baking delicious treats, and keep myself active through running. You may also find me making coffee at Starbucks. In addition to TSA, I am involved in various other clubs, such as Hands 2 Hearts, First Robotics, SASA, HOSA, Speech & Debate, and others. These experiences have enriched my life and shaped me into the person I am today.
As your Sergeant-at-Arms, I am committed to achieving several goals this year. Foremost, I aim to expand TSA's membership, especially in the West TN region, by reaching out to more students and sharing the incredible opportunities TSA offers. Additionally, I plan to enhance chapter communication, ensuring that every member is well-informed and engaged in TSA activities. To inspire creativity and excellence, I also intend to create a competitions album that showcases past project examples, providing invaluable resources to our members.
I am beyond enthusiastic to collaborate with Team 46 and all the amazing members of TNTSA this year. Together, let's make this year unforgettable!
