About: I was born and raised in Indianapolis, Indiana. My parents are immigrants from Pakistan and always made sure our family valued our cultural traditions.

I am currently a freshman at IUPUI studying Informatics. The School of Informatics and Computing was very appealing to me because of its importance to diversity and inclusiveness.

I became a student ambassador so I could show incoming freshmen all the amazing opportunities offered by the School of Informatics and Computing. I am currently also a part of the Pakistani Student Association (PSA) and very involved with my scholars’ programs.
