I am doing a module on the History and Culture of China on my BSc Management course, and also studying Mandarin on the Language Entitlement Programme.

I am interested in the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) and I have been able to advance this interest at SOAS.  I am doing a module on the History and Culture of China on my BSc Management course, and also studying Mandarin on the Language Entitlement Programme.  I have also taken modules on corporate social responsibility and marketing business. 

My goal is to go back to Pakistan and empower women who are not financially independent by advising them how to build up small-scale businesses; this kind of vocational training for women would help to make them self-sufficient. 

I have enjoyed studying in London: there are so many activities and societies available, and I have joined the Pakistan Society so that I have not felt homesick.
