Master of Business Administration Batch 2020

Please tell us something about yourself, your family and your interests.

Things I find interesting would include a good book, rainy day and a delicious cup of tea. Regarding my family, they are all busy with their own work so I do not bother them much. Siblings go to college, father goes to office and my mother is a homemaker. Sometimes I like to cook for myself. Most of the time my office work keeps me busy and that is pretty much my daily routine.

What drew you to the program you are studying at Athena? Is it living up to your expectations?

Recommendation from a friend within my circle and a strong desire for permanent residence in Canada drew me to this program. It's just supposed to be a baseline requirement and a step towards my final goal. I have yet to complete the program to know if it were up to my expectations.

What would you like to learn next? What are your next career steps?

I would like to study Data Analytics and maybe do my PhD in that subject.

Are you working somewhere? If yes, what do you feel is the most enjoyable/rewarding aspect of your job?

Currently I am working in Huawei Technologies, and the most enjoyable part is tackling issues and learning a skill to solve them which is my kind of a mindset.

What do you see as your greatest strength?

My ability to learn new skills in a short span of time and adapting to changing technologies.

What is your most cherished memory?

Seeing the happiness on my parents’ face when I graduated is one of the most cherished memories i have.

Which country have you always wanted to visit and why?

A trip to Italy to visit Rome and see the Colosseum because I am just mesmerized by the fact that it was made by humans.

Do you have professional role models? Who are they and what do you find inspiring about them and their accomplishments?

Elon Musk* can be considered one of my role models as he has always made money as a byproduct and gave preference to the advancement of the human race.

If you could go on a road trip with anyone in history, who would it be?

Hazrat Muhammad (S.A.W)

What have you learnt from your experiences that you would like to pass on to others?

Never harm anyone intentionally and never lie. It is ok to own up your mistakes rather than lying.
