Can I pursue my passion and still be successful?

What will I be Mentored about?

Engineering or Medicine? A perplexing career decision most 18 year old South Asian students have to make with no option of ‘personal choice’! Our society has made these careers epitome of intelligence and success. Hence, to be the ‘successor’ and not the ‘failure’ we take this predestined pathway. However, we are living during a time of ample career opportunities tailored to our interests and passion. Then why limit ourselves to the conventional career choices? For many of us, the real obstacle is knowing what we are deeply invested in. The programme will give students the opportunity to explore their passion and interests through interactive sessions consisting of quizzes and Q/A’s with people who are living examples of success and happiness.

Zara Hussain

Hi! My name is Zara and I’m a second-year Dentistry student. This summer, I had the opportunity to volunteer with an organisation called IEI to create radio literacy lessons for children living in remote valleys of Pakistan, facing the digital divide. Despite lockdown, this experience was a reminder of the endless ways I could still reach out to help people. Hence, SAWC presented me an amazing opportunity to help guide and support students during this time of uncertainty. I am excited to be part of SAWC and hope to make it an insightful and great learning experience for others too. If I am not working, you will find me either playing badminton or reading but lockdown has definitely added Netflix to the list!
