ISLA Completion Ceremony

Towards the end of 2013 I joined the International Student Leadership Ambassador program and became an official ISLA Ambassador for the City of Sydney.

I made some great friends and got the chance to get involved in some of the city’s cultural projects with the leadership of Susana Ng as our project manager. I was selected as the Team Leader for the marketing team, although my work and study commitments did not leave me with much time but I tried and got involved when I can and it worked out great!

On Friday 24 April, 2015 we were invited to attend our completion and receive our certificate and welcome the new ISLA members as alumni. It was a great evening with food, drinks and even some dancing. Here’s a sneak peak of the fun times.

A little over 2 years later…

Two years is a long time especially when you’re trying to make it work in a place like Sydney, a city which is consistently topping the most expensive city in the world list.

A lot of great things have happened in the last couple of years which have had a profound impact on  my life, I’ve met some great people and have had a lot of excellent experiences which have molded me into the man I am today.

On the 13th day of June 2014, I walked out of Charles Sturt University after having taken my last exam and on December 19, 2014  I officially graduated with a Master of Information Technology. Woohoo!! That’s right….I now have a  Master’s degree which makes me a smart person.


Once I graduated, things just fell into place with a great job at OPPO Mobile Australia where I am now a Technical Analyst. Love the work, love the business and thoroughly enjoying myself.

On the flip side, one of the greatest things happened in my life while I was back in Pakistan for my sisters wedding last December, I met the most amazing person who in less than a year is going to be my wife!

Happiest moment of my life!

A lot of great things happening and coming my way…Can’t wait to see what happens next!
