Meet the Staff
I was born in Pakistan and moved to U.S. during my childhood. I speak Urdu, Punjabi and some Spanish. I have traveled to Turkey, Nicaragua, Guatemala, and studied abroad in Ireland. Prior to coming to UB, I taught English as a Second Language at Sacred Heart University. Currently I serve as the International Student Advisor in the International Center for Students and Scholars. I am responsible for advising international students on various issues impacting them, including immigration and adjustment to life in the US.
Somewhere between frolicking from the foothills of coffee plantations in Coorg to the tall towers of Bengaluru in India, I mustered up the courage to step out of my comfort zone and pursue a Masters in Computer Science in an unfamiliar place, the US. As an international student, being an Office Assistant in the International Center at the University of Bridgeport has been the cherry on top of the experience. For the best training I’ve received related to the immigration policies to maintain status in the US as an international student, I feel confident to answer the student’s queries. I’ll be on my toes to serve you the best.
Like the students I serve, I came to the United States to study as an international student. A number of years have passed, but I felt like it was yesterday when I flew in with an oversize suitcase and a pair of eager eyes. A unique sense of fulfillment comes from academic achievement in a secondary language. The University of Bridgeport has a diverse student body and it is an exciting place to be. The entire staff and I are here to assist you in easing your transition into the University of Bridgeport community. I speak Chinese, and have traveled to Russia, France, Belgium, Austria, Canada, and Italy. I can be contacted by email at: email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org.
