She thanked her entry into the system and her encouragement sources with whose support she went on to become the first woman NSUI state president of Goa and the only minority woman State President in India. She posted of her fond remembrance of the time when the entire Congress family stood by her, without asking any questions, when the opposition tried to defame her with her feature in the Lok sabha Ad campaign. “But like every other stage of life, time comes when you have to move on and let go. It’s that time for me. I have tendered in my resignation about a month ago. I believe it’s time to move on and make space for new energy – with fresh ideas and creativity, to take the organization even higher,” quoted Hasiba.
To all these turmoils, the President of NSUI Fairoz Khan told DU Beat in a statement, “It is a natural process of members joining and leaving, and whatever may come our team has always worked for the betterment of the students and will continue to do so. I did talk with Angellica, Leni and Hasiba and support their decisions to move forth in life, taking to other avenues. Some members are opting for higher studies and some are paving the way for new members. They are thoughtful enough; the new students with potential should have their role in the national service.”
