Passing all my CS and MA units and completing my programme within 3 years. Submitting assignment before deadlines was also a great challenge.

How do you think USP helped you in your career?
USP helped me in many ways such as to become a team player, think critically, having a positive mind and to become a good citizen of my country. USP also trained in such a way that I can fit in any workplace with confidence.

Being equipped with the necessary knowledge and skills, I got employed in USP. I am looking forward to delivering the things I leant to my students in a manner that suits them the best.

Your advice to current and future USP students.
'Attempt till the last breadth'. Success only comes through hard work and dedication. If you are given the opportunity, then make the most of it. Think of your parents and those who are supporting you financially or in some other ways. Work towards your goals as nothing is impossible and finally if you are not sure of anything then ask.

What you hope USP will be like in the future?
USP will surely transform itself from a good university to a great university. It will deliver with excellence the programmes in the different fields of study.
