  • My four-year journey at LUMS taught me the importance of persistence and self-belief in making the impossible possible, a motto that continues to be an integral part of my life. I was fortunate enough to study from some highly experienced and competent teachers who continue to inspire me to date. Despite majoring in Accounting and Finance, I got the chance to take courses from other disciplines such as languages, law, and computer science, an opportunity one rarely gets elsewhere.
