Studying in SZABIST and graduating with a Business degree in which the projects and assignments revolved around starting ones own business set-up and how to run it efficiently it was somehow my aim to be able to run my own set-up one day. If I would have known that even before graduating I would become a part of such set-up as a co-founder I wouldn't believe it but it did happen.
Being a founding member of "Kacheri" alongside SZABIST BABS Alumni Qumber Iqbal who is currently the CEO and founder of the set-up was an exhilarating opportunity for me to put all the hard work we did in projects all 4 years and implicate it in practical life.
Together with Qumber we launched KACHERI officially in 2019 as a legal Tech start-up and in the same year we got incubated in the National Incubation Centre Karachi and became the first Legal Tech Start-up all over Pakistan. From being the Regional Finalist of Pakistan Start-up Cup (TIE ISLAMABAD) to launching our services in three different cities of Pakistan was an exciting moment for us and we couldn't thank SZABIST enough for the skills and the tools they provided us to run our own set-up and succeeding in doing so

I graduated from SZABIST with a BS in Social Sciences in 2013 soon after which I enrolled in the MOA programme (for advertising). During my four-year bachelors programme, I gained a skillset that helped me kick-start my professional life with confidence as at SZABIST, among other areas, there is a focus on polishing the communication skills of students. Other than this, I owe it to my teachers of Social Sciences for making me grow into an individual who knows the meaning of celebrating diversity, team work and unbiased leadership. The one-and-a-half-year MOA programme was a refresher as, I had started my professional life. It made me realise, how important it is to stay in touch with the academia and to keep oneself updated as, a fulltime 9-5 job is not enough for personal, as well as, professional growth.

I was in SZABIST to pursue Bachelors in Business Administration (BBA) (Hons) from 2006-2010. In 2011, I moved to Birmingham, England for my Bachelors in Law (LLB Hons). Thereafter, I pursued the Bar Professional Training Course (BPTC) from City University London from 2013-2014 and was called to the Bar of England and Wales by Lincoln’s Inn. Currently, I am a Barrister-at-law working on various corporate transactions and litigation matters.

My time at SZABIST from 2006-2010 played an important role in shaping me as a Barrister. SZABIST offered me an encouraging, accommodating and supportive environment. The classroom sessions gave me a strong grounding in fundamentals. They trained me to think independently, reason critically and argue creatively – the factors that turned out to be the most crucial ones while I was doing my legal studies in England. 

In particular, I enjoyed the practical approach to teaching. The teaching methods used by the lecturers almost always involved practical assignments and/or projects which made the learning much easier. It was due to these methods that studying and learning was never an arduous task. 

SZABIST also helped me learn the skill of striking a balance between the curricular and extra-curricular activities. I founded Young Senators’ Society and, while being the Founding President, it was really exciting to organize activities inculcating political knowledge among the youth and simultaneously achieving good grades.
