Undergraduate School/Major: I attended Lahore University of Management Sciences and majored in economics.

Concentrations: Strategic management and entrepreneurship.

Activities: I am a member of the Management Consulting Group, Entrepreneurship and Venture Capital Group, Booth Technology Club, Epicurean Club, and Giving Something Back.

Career plans: I am recruiting for consulting.

Why did you choose to attend Booth? I applied because I felt that at Booth, you can really carve out your own path. The flexible curriculum is truly awesome! You can take the courses you want and it offers an opportunity to meet and network with second years. I chose to attend Booth because the staff, the current students and the alumni all reached out to me after I was accepted and encouraged me to ask questions about Booth and living in Chicago that would make it easier for me to choose the right school. Whether it is professors, students, or alumni, the people at Booth are some of the most helpful I have ever met.

Use three adjectives to describe your Chicago Booth experience: Exhilarating, collaborative, and transformative.

What do you consider a "must visit" place in Chicago? Explore the different neighborhoods of Chicago through food crawls! To name a few, have South Asian food at Devon Street, dumplings in China town, and go to the Ukrainian Village for a lot more than just Ukrainian food.

Ask me about...:  Moving to and settling in Chicago from outside the US and how to balance business school with a family.
