My interest in computer science dates back to my years in high school. Because of this interest and curiosity to learn more about this field compelled me to choose Computer Science for undergraduate studies and also to pursue further studies and exploration of this field. Having a solid academic foundation resulted in impressive academic performance with me being among the top 2 students of class throughout my studies. I completed my Higher Secondary Education with Computer Science subjects from Government Degree College (GDC) Sheikhupura with 2nd position in class, and secured admission in the globally recognized University of Pakistan, University of the Punjab (PU). At PU my academic records were as impressive as ever. I attained 2nd position in class with a CGPA of 3.67 and and secured HEC scholarship for consecutive 3 years.
