MGSHSS Alumna goes to Columbia University, USA

MGSHSS gave me the platform to hone my ideas and the way that I thought about and viewed the world. While I majored in Economics, I simultaneously was able to take courses in so many other disciplines that allowed me to not only expand my understanding of various fields, but also allowed me to develop a multi-faceted view of my own field of study. Without the teachers that challenged my ideas and, quite literally, unlocked my mind, the learning that allowed me to grow, and the peers that supported me, I don’t think I wouldn’t be anywhere close to where I am now, pursuing what I love; all because of the encouragement I received, and the growth that was fostered in me, through MGSHSS and through LUMS.

Hira graduated from LUMS in 2018 with Bachelors in Economics and is currently pursuing a Master’s degree in Sociology at Columbia University.
