My undergrad was a double major in Economics and Finance from Lahore School of Economics, four extremely important and memorable years of my life that I will always cherish. But it was this particular MPhil programme that changed my life!
I am fortunate to have interacted with extremely inspiring and charismatic professors, who brought out the best in me. I learned to analyse and critically evaluate historical events as well as current affairs. Not only did the course of a year boost my confidence with regards to expressing myself, but also provided me with great exposure. The entire learning process was enjoyable for me which is why I believe I was able to excel in this particular programme.
I am currently settled in Germany where I am taking a break from studies to adapt to the life here and look after my ever-so-demanding precious little baby girl. I have plans to resume my journey in the field of research soon.
