I was born in Karachi, Pakistan but moved to Toronto, Canada at the age of 5. After living in Canada for several years, my family decided to move to Massachusetts where I currently live to this day. Growing up, I was a rather simple person who played basketball and football constantly, chilled with friends and studied when need be. I came to Rutgers in hopes of an adventure that would be unmatched by any other school out there for me, and so far Iota Nu Delta has really helped achieve that goal. I am defined by my family and the experiences that I have encountered, so this brotherhood was more than what I was seeking. I hope to one day become an oncologist as it not only intrigued me to no end but has been the goal to my efforts.

I was born in Mercer, NJ and lived in Somerset when I was younger before finally moving to South Brunswick, NJ. I graduated from South Brunswick High School in 2014. I've always had a passion for helping people and that is what encouraged me to pursue a career in medicine and ultimately decided to come to Rutgers as a Pre-med student. I love to play and watch basketball and football and am a big fan of Dwayne Wade and the New York Jets. I love talking and meeting new people and am always hanging out with friends. I wasn't sure how to get involved at Rutgers and ultimately decided to join a fraternity. I joined Iota Nu Delta my freshman year and I'm grateful to have gained a second family that I can always look to for support and guidance. It has changed my life and has taught me to always pursue my passions and to never let any obstacles stand in between me and my goals.
