What would people be surprised to know about you? 

I have 3 citizen passports (Canada, America & Pakistan).

Name a cause you are passionate about.

A cause that I am passionate about is bringing awareness and preventing human trafficking. I want to create a safe environment and destigmatize survivors coming out for help and overall create more safety procedures surrounding human trafficking.

Why did you choose MSP?

I chose to attend MSP because of the warm and accepting environment it has to offer to the faculty, staff and students! Everyone feels so welcomed and belonged here. I value their quality of education and commitment that professors have to their students.

What is your plan after graduation?

I want to open up a private practice one day and also take this degree to my home country in Pakistan. I want to open up mental health facilities there and a school for girls in remote areas.
