Author Bio

Though I was initially born in London, I was raised in Karachi where I attended an old British school that was founded before the creation of my country, Pakistan. Here I studied Economics, World History, Mathematics, and Art and Design under the A-Level Cambridge system. After graduating from high school, I spent one year in a small liberal arts college called Bennington College in Vermont. The small size of Bennington College and the individualized attention I received there allowed me to realize my ambitions. After one year I transferred to Georgetown University to study Economics and Chinese. Find me on twitter at @AghaUzayr and instagram at @uzayruagha.
