I graduated with majors in Economics & Finance from Lahore School of Economics. I have been active in various volunteering positions including CARE Foundation, where i taught various subjects to children, who were unable to afford proper education.
My first job was at an E-commerce company, whereby i held the position of a Marketing Executive. As a marketing executive i was required to be creative, maintain good business ethics, and network. The responsibility of heading an entire region and creating a business foundation that would be followed in the years to come was indeed a challenging task, but it was fascinating to see my hard work reap success in terms of revenue generation for numerous merchants. I then moved on towards a new challenge. I worked as a Training Executive at Pakistan's largest private sector insurance company, whereby i was upgraded from being the foremost sales personnel to training company employees and employees of 12 banks with respect to Insurance funds, tax credits, customized insurance products, and soft skills. This was more attuned to my prior experience and academic background. I created a whole database of new training materials that could be used throughout the entity and helped numerous trainees make better product offerings. My most recent experience was with an IT firm, as a Functional Analyst, whereby i was responsible for customizing the finance module of an ERP software towards Pakistan's business requirements. In essence, i am an ardent learner and that helps me solve problems for companies and individuals, alike.
