It was a fully-funded exchange semester, making her the first student to be accepted from Ziauddin University, North campus.

She attended the University of South Dakota (USD) in Spring 2022 as an international exchange student and cultural ambassador under the Global Undergraduate Exchange Program (Global UGRAD), sponsored by the U.S Department of State.

She wishes this opportunity to come true for other students as well. Moreover, a very interactive Question and Answer session occurred after the presentation.
