President – Shehani Leo

Shehani, fondly known as “Leo” is “THE Queen” of our club. Armed with cuteness, creativity and a great sense of responsibility, she manages to get things done in the best way possible.

“You can always talk to her” although she’s literally a radio that automatically keeps changing channels with no “Power Off” button. Besides, her undying self-obsession is an adorable treat to watch. Jokes aside, as an ardent Rotaractor with an outgoing personality and a flare for speaking, she’s undoubtedly the best individual RACUOCFMF could have asked for as the 10th President. With Rtr. Shehani Leo by your side, you’re bound to smile and hear her ask you, “Any issues? Is there any way I can help you?

Achini, nicknamed “Achcha” and “Achcha boi” is nothing but crazy as she admits. She will light up your day with whatever she says or does.

Vice President – Vishmi Withanage

Vishmi, also known as “Cheese Boley” is the one you should go to for an unfiltered honest opinion. She might try and lie with her words but her face never does.

She’s one call away when you want her, especially if it’s a (Ahem. Ahem!) HIKE! You can say she has a heart that’s proportionate to her physique, simply because she’s our extremely generous transport provider at most times! What still surprises us the most though is that she’s the only one we know who gets dressed in the morning in the total opposite order of getting ready! With her “Always up for anything!” and “No Bullsh*t attitudes we’re sure she’ll make an amazing Vice President!

Vice President – Anuni De Alwis

Anuni, well known as “Anu” is one of the most humble human beings you’ll ever meet! You wouldn’t receive any reluctant answer leave alone a “No”, if you ask for help.

Even if you don’t, she’d always volunteer! But there remains an exception. If you ask her to show her teeth when smiling, your request is highly likely to fall on deaf ears. In short, she has such a beautiful heart that has definitely been made use of to execute great work throughout her journey of Rotaract!

Secretary – Piyumi Abeywardhana

Piyumi, fondly known as “Puma”, is literally the “Puma” in our club simply because she’s one of the best Athletes in the University!

She is one sweet individual who puts all her heart and soul in to anything when needed, including Rotaract. Ignoring the fact she may fall in to trouble owing to her mischievous group of girlfriends, she’ll yet go to “any extent” for her friends! No matter how hard she tries, when singing, her tune vanishes in to thin air and she ends up just reading out the words. (Her face would hilariously explain it.) All in all, she’s a genius with numbers, a “real beauty both in and out” and an amazing secretary who knows to strike a balance between all the responsibilities!

Shafeeka, known as “Mother Theresa”, “Shafee”, “Shafs” and “Shaaf”, is the member with the most radiant smile. She loves cats and just like them although she may look innocent and sweet, we hear that she’s not!

Her love towards mother-nature is greater than anything else and her knowledge about our planet is literally as big as our planet. Again it’s the same when it comes to reading and writing and this is exactly why she’s one of the best bloggers we have! As a human being and a Rotaractor, Shaf is committed to her list of duties, treats everyone alike and is as down to earth as she loves the earth!

He has been the center of attraction since the very first day he stepped in to the University which is why you’ll always find him surrounded by a bunch of girls. (The reason why he remains single up to date. )He’d always love to see another individual reaching great heights. His sensitive and caring personality and his burning drive for whatever he’s passionate about makes him yet another incredible club member we have.

Co-Editor – Aloka Weerawardane

Aloka, better known as “Laddu” is a “Human-Panda.” She just sits in one place and eats all day long. She can write, sing, draw, announce and her right brain clearly dominates the left because she’s hopeless when it’s anything related to numbers.

Although a co-editor, she works for almost all avenues and is surely the go-to person for a caption, project name and to cross check anything. No matter how busy she is, if it’s Rotaract related she “will” respond, ignoring approximately 90 unread WhatsApp chats. Laddu owns a sweet personality, “loves imitating others” and is absolutely dedicated and helpful!

She has the voice of a nightingale and is such a bubbly person whom everyone enjoys being around.

Co-Director International Service – Tishani Ranawana

Tishani, well known as Tish, Tishy or Fishy reminds you of nothing but a “Llama”. She’s creative, smart and is absolutely generous and genuine.

However a task given to Fishy can be considered a task successfully completed as her level of dedication, passion and precision is just amazing. Be it a power bank, wet tissues, food, cream or cash- you name it she’ll have it. Having her around, you instinctively feel confident and safe. In short, she’s such an asset! She’s a star swimmer.

She who has no nick name is a die-hard Game of Thrones fan, sounds like a goat and acts like a donkey 90% of the time! You would hear her go “heh-heh” every now and then.  

Needless to say that, there’s never a dull moment around her! She “loves” dogs, cash and owns one massive network of contacts! She can charm people on the first encounter and let it retain till they’re too late to let go of her. But jokes apart both as a Rotaractor and a person, her capability to “somehow” get things done involving others is beyond stunning!

Ovin, aka “Bimsara tharuna mahatha” is an extremely, smart, passionate and ambitious human being who has achieved so much at such a young age!

He is capable of theorizing everything in life by relating his experience to theories we learn. (Now, this can be a wee bit annoying.) If it’s a general knowledge question, he’d certainly know the answer. He might be fun loving and chilled out from the outside, but he’s a deep thinker from within. With his clear life vision, he inspires everyone around him and has a heart that opens up to support people whenever needed.

Director Membership Development – Samiddhi Wanigasekara

Samiddi, well known as “Sami” is a Director with no Co-Director and is therefore very disappointed. Very often she talks in the third person and you’d constantly hear her say “Sami wants food, Sami is happy, Sami has no one.”

Also, Sami is proof that “water-diets” work! She’s lovable and pretty, whines A LOT and starves for attention always! To top it all, she owns a high pitched voice too. But it’s guaranteed that you’ll miss her in her absence. Her dedication and sense of responsibility as a Rotaractor deserve a huge round of applause and a bow indeed.

Sandalu, as his WhatsApp status says, is actually “A man for all seasons.” He celebrates life and gives in to his heart’s desires.

No matter what, Sandalu will grow and bloom wherever he’s planted and he never fails to paint a smile on every person he comes across!

Melan, commonly known as “Melon” is literally one “sweet” hottie in the club. But you really wouldn’t realize this upon meeting him for the first time.
