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.
