Do you have fond memories?

Absolutely! From attending classes in the homely social sciences building to hanging out in the Warwick Arts Centre, shopping at Costcutter, walking all the way to the post office to collect deliveries and shopping around Heronbank with friends - Warwick gave me the best memories.

Where did you live while you were at Warwick?

At the lovely Heronbank!

What are you doing now?

I was working as a research associate for the USAID-LUMS programme but got married and had to move to Islamabad. So I resigned from the job and am currently looking for another one.

Why did you decide to become an alumni ambassador?

It's a small effort on my part to give back to the University. Plus it would be nice to coordinate alumni in Pakistan and have get togethers like so many alumni in other countries do.

What kind of people make up the Warwick alumni community in your area?

They are all locals. Almost all of them studied business at warwick and are now working in business sector
.
Have you been back to Warwick recently?

Yes! I went in September 2014, visited the campus and met my dissertation supervisor. Never felt happier!
