I was born in Pakistan and spent a significant amount of time growing up there before my family moved to the United States. I attended the University of Wisconsin, Madison and graduated with my Bachelors in Biology with a certificate in Japanese and Environmental studies in 2017. I then proceeded to get my Masters in Bacteriology in 2019 from UW Madison as well. I have always been interested in healthcare, and think that the dental field is an amazing field. I hope to continue to learn from it, and help bring dental care to communities with limited access to care. In my free time, I like to read and paint. I also love travelling and learning about different cultures.
