I was born in Lahore, Pakistan to a middle class family. My childhood had its ups and downs and there were some hiccups along the way. As a teenager, I spent most of my time with family, specially with my cousins. We grew really close and our relationship grew from merely cousins to best friends. I joined a private institute for O'Levels and then another for A'Levels. I had always been a hard worker and loved to learn new things, be those related to my studies or otherwise. My dream was to become a pilot because I fancied flying but due to some physical injuries, my chances grew slim and I opted for engineering. I got admission in the Electrical Engineering Department at a university in Lahore. The first 2 or 3 semesters were lucky for me because I turned out to be able to grasp concepts pretty well and quickly. I found out my talents and skills over time. I guess I was also lucky to find good friends who were always supportive in addition to my family who always had my back, as well. During the four years at the university, I realized I was a pretty good programmer because I could develop logic out of thin air. I could also visualize the problem and imagine its solution. In other words, I could solve problems in my head. This turned to work out for other fields, e.g. Maths, as well. As a result, I could easily score above average marks.

Education aside, I love to socialize with my friends over activities which usually involve movies at cinemas, food at various hotels and games such as cards.

During my mid teenage, I became a big fan of driving. I learnt how to at an early age. It has ever since been one of my extreme passions, even though I have been through a lot of road accidents, some really fatal. On the road, I can be a maestro and show my full potential, as a driver, of course. I have learned a lot of things from my mistakes.

Growing up, one of my biggest dreams was to travel the world. I tried to get some NGOs to sponsor me as well but to no avail. Even today, I feel like I want to be able to visit the places I haven't seen so that I could get a feel of what the planet is really like..

All in all, I would say I have come a good way and I have much more to go.
