Q: What is your sibling dynamic like?
A: Typical brothers dynamic with lots of fighting, but also unspoken companionship. In the past, the YS would always follow the OS around. However, as we aged, the YS started to follow his own path. Personality-wise we're the complete opposite of each other. Nevertheless, we cool.
Q: Knowing your sibling best, do you think their committee of choice (or board function) suits them? If so, why? If not, what committee would you have recommended to them?
Q: YS, did OS impact your choice to join CSA-EUR? If so, how?
A: Yes, moments where he came home telling me the stories of how he had to organize events and the kinds of people that he met made me gain interest to join CSA-EUR. If not for him, I am not sure if I would've come to know about CSA-EUR.
Q: What is your favorite CSA-EUR memory?
A: OS: My favourite memory is the accomplishment of organising a successful Christmas gala.
YS: In my opinion, there is no single favourite memory. All the small quality times with my fellow active members, seeing how I am growing closer and closer to certain people. Are my favourite moments.
Q: Has CSA-EUR affected your sibling relationship in any way?
A:OS: Yes, we spend less time together now, as Jackie hangs out more often with his own group of friends.
YS: Yes, I am growing more independent now and am living my own life, not following my brother around anymore.
Q: What does CSA-EUR mean to the two of you today?
A: OS: CSA-EUR was the place which allowed me to meet a lot of new people. Life-long friendships have been created at CSA.
YS: CSA-EUR was the place which let me improve myself, it was the place where I have met my new amazing friends who I care about deeply, even found my partner through CSA-EUR (Wink Wink). So CSA-EUR was the place for me which allowed me to improve myself, expand my connections and have lots of fun together with other amazing people.
Q: Any word of advice for other siblings out there?
A: OS: Take care of each other.
YS: Communicate with each other, if there is something bothering you. Don't hesitate to reach out.
