My Story

I was raised with an acute understanding that learning in essential, life-long, and not accessible to all.

I grew up in rural Sindh, Pakistan, where I  faced limited access to girls' schools with inadequate infrastructure and poorly trained teachers. Later on, when I finally moved to Islamabad for a better education, I found myself falling behind my peers due to the complexity of concepts and the English language. In the face of such obstacles, I embarked on a journey of self-guided learning, transforming complexities into engaging games and captivating shows to overcome these challenges.

My passion for learning drove me to design a personalized curriculum, shaping my path towards professional experiences in Learning & Development. Pursuing a Masters in Learning Design, Innovation & Technology at Harvard University further deepened my understanding of effective learning strategies.

Through my work with the United Nations Development Program and Carnelian Pakistan Ltd, I gained invaluable insights into the potential of effective learning, smart design, and capacity building for communities and companies.

Today, armed with this knowledge and experience, I am devoted to creating innovative and accessible learning designs. I believe learning can be a powerful tool for positive change, uplifting individuals and organizations, and unlocking their true potential.
