Maryam Zohra, Quaid i Azam University, Islamabad.
I am currently a student of International Relations in a well known Pakistani university named Quaid i Azam University, Islamabad.
The School of Politics and International Relations (SPIR) was one of my goals which I achieved in 2019 after hardwork, consistency and a bit of luck! This university is full of intellectual minds and is rich in culture, plus students are from diverse backgrounds (it is also nown as "Mini Pakistan").
Life here at QAU was very challenging for me. I was the first child from my family who was getting an education. I lacked friends and a social circle and many more academic obstacles came my way.
We have a saying, "Time heals". After 1 & 1/2 semesters I coped with all these fears and mental disturbance with patience, positive thinking and hope. Now I feel like this university is my home. During this whole process, I have been so grateful to my friends and my supervisor (Dr. Raja Qaiser Ahmed). Their presence is a constant motivation for me.
Stay safe and blessed.
