When other children in my class wanted to be astronauts and doctors, I wanted to be a teacher. My favorite American history teacher, Miss Dupriest, made me an American. As an immigrant from Pakistan, I became fascinated by the men and women who fought for freedom, wherever that fight happened to be. I was inspired by their actions, courage and willingness to stand up for what they believed. Since the 5th grade, I wanted to teach everyone not only their stories but the stories of other individuals who made an impact in the world.
After I graduated from the UTeach-Liberal Arts program at University of Texas, I continued my studies on a full scholarship to the Institute of Ismaili Studies and Institute of Education in London. via http://whyiteach.learningmatters.tv.
