Post-Fletcher Aspirations

"By using my Fletcher experience as a Fulbright Fellow, I aim to make a scalable impact through innovation across local businesses in South Asia. I would like to take on advisory role in Federation of Pakistan Chambers of Commerce & Industry (FPCCI) to offer assistance to the Government in promoting polices for sustainable economic growth using innovation. As an example, I would like to work on policies directed towards improving the state of cluster development where priority sectors are identified and steered towards transforming the country towards a knowledge-based economy. This would allow me to achieve my aspiration to make Pakistan an innovation-driven economy."

On diversity in the Fletcher Community

"I am both amazed and inspired by the diversity this school offers. I live on campus in Blakeley Hall where I get the unique opportunity to interact with students from more than 40 different nationalities, each one of them sharing perspectives on subjects ranging from geopolitics to security studies in the context of emerging developments in global affairs. Such perspectives and insights couldn’t easily be traced in the mainstream media. The exposure to such a diverse community has not only enhanced my interpersonal skills, but also given me the ability to view global issues through various lens."
