Guys,

Can each of you please post a brief intro to yourself as a response to this thread? It will be a good start for everyone on the forums to get to know each other, and will eventually form the basis for member profiles on our web site.

Here is the template to use:

Subject:
Your full name

Body:
1) Name
2) Location
3) Occupation
4) Bulleted educational summary (including graduation years)
5) Something about your background, interests etc.

I am going to post mine as an example after this.

Tarim Wasim
Boston, MA
Student

- A.B. Computer Engineering, Dartmouth College (1999)
- MBA Candidate, Harvard Business School (2005)

I grew up in Karachi and Islamabad, and came to the US after completing my A' Levels from Froebels. Realizing that people in engineering were too smart for me to have a prayer, I switched to business (consulting, investing) after college. I'm very interested in how we can catalyze Pakistan's development, especially the issue of sustainable progress. I am moving to SF in August, so let me know if you want to help me launch our first West Coast chapter there!

Nadia Shaikh
Lahore, Pakistan (moving to Karachi soon. One day I want to live in South Africa).
Consultant

B.Eng Computer Engineering, McGill University (2001)

Earlier years were spent in the rolling-stone life of a foreign-office kid. Then got a chance to enjoy the hospitality of the boarding houses of OPF College Islamabad, where I completed my O and A'levels (and also learnt how to pick locks). Then moved to the most gorgeous city, Montreal, for my undergrad. Followed that up by a consulting stint in the US. Three years later and I still can't give you my job description. The next chapter of my life has taken me to Pakistan.

I want to be involved in educating Pakistanis - arming the people with knowledge that will allow them to break free of poverty and stand on their own.

Name: Maham Abbas Mela

Location: Oxford University (until June), then moving back to Stanford University, CA, USA.

Occupation: Student (with no hope of being anything else, my uncle said)

Educational Background:
- O & A Levels, Lahore Grammar School, Lahore, Pakistan
- Currently a junior in Stanford University, spending the quarter at Oxford, majoring in Economics, International Relations and honors in Education.

Something about me:
I'm the eldest of three siblings and it shows because my brother wanted to go to college anywhere but Stanford. People have made fun of my last name a lot (including Mubarik Faisal Imam who is not a guy, like she says), and they have consequently gotten beaten up - literally. I used to stay awake all night reading with a torch under my bedcovers but I've hardly read anything fun since college.
And this is NOT a complaining opportunity.
However, I'm also interested in working in public policy, internationally as well as in Pakistan, focusing on economics and education. I've worked with NGOs but I think my niche is the public sector. I'm thinking of graduate school in public policy, law, business and medicine (even though I haven't taken any biology since 8th grade) and consequently my family think I'm crazy and will never get anything done.

Mohammed Anjarwala
Boston, MA
Student

BA Applied Mathematics, Franklin & Marshall College (1999)
MBA Candidate, Harvard Business School (2006)

I grew up in Karachi and came to F&M in 1995 after having done my O & A levels from Karachi Grammar School. After graduating from college, I moved to Chicago (one of the most beautiful cities) where I worked as a consultant for three years. Since 2002, I have been in Boston where I first worked at a private equity firm and am now completing my MBA (i.e. improving my golf and poker skills).

I'm interested in how market-based methods can drive and sustain development. I've recently become interested in micro-finance and its growth and development in Pakistan. I truly believe that if major financial institutions enter the micro-finance sector as a profit-making exercise, the lower-middle class could benefit tremendously.
