The experience in the UK was overwhelming. There was a lot to look forward to and a lot to learn from. I however had a keen interest in retailers offering branded apparels as I wanted to establish a business in fashion industry back in Pakistan. Once I had completed my bachelors degree, I opted for a masters programme and got admission in MSc Marketing. That further enhanced my qualification and also gave me more time to learn as much as I could from the UK.

It was not easy but I allocated a lot of time to my studies and emerged as a successful graduate. The studies had a practical approach rather than theoretical and from that I learned a lot.
