Why I Wanted to Serve on the Alumni Council:

I wanted to help to give back to the college since I felt very grateful to come to the US through generous funding by the school. It opened new avenues and opportunities to me and turned me into a truly global citizen, something for which I will eternally be grateful to Grinnell. While I also went to grad school at UPenn/Wharton, my loyalty to my undergrad Grinnell comes before any other school.

I also felt it would be a good way to visit Grinnell regularly and stay connected (AC members have to come to campus twice a year) as well as to meet other alumni from different class years, many of whom I am lucky to call my friends now.

A Quote I Like:

"The harder I work, the luckier I get."

A Little Bit About Me:

I am currently a consultant at McKinsey & Co. in the NY office. I recently graduated with an MBA from UPenn/Wharton. Before grad school, I worked on Wall St. in Fixed Income and Global Macro/Asset allocation investing. I was born in Islamabad, PAKISTAN but consider NYC to be the greatest city on earth and lucky to call it home now.

In my spare time, I enjoy trying out food from various countries, impressionist art, theater, and playing + watching soccer (especially Arsenal FC). I love meeting Grinnellians from all over.

Other Alumni Involvement: Multiple, including Regional Planning Committee Coordinator; GRASP Interviewer; Careers, Life and Service (CLS) Volunteer
