Bio

I'm currrently in grade 12. This is my last year in high school. I'm looking forward to go college and get a better job after graduating from university. I have done 250 volunteer hours to help my community. I worked with Islamic society and for a school did door to door donation.

Story

My whole family had to leave Pakistan to immigrate to Canada. This was the big decision of our life's. We have to leave our family and friends. I moved to Canada in 2013. My first two month were really hard and I wanted to go back. But we moved here to get better education and a better life. I couldn't make friends in the first two month. But suddenly I started to make

Friends. I started my school in grade 8 here in Canada. Then I moved to a high school. I really loved to go high school because I made more friends there and got into the environment. Now I really love Canada. My life has changed. My parents have a good jobs. I have made a lot of friends. My favorite sports is cricket. I have been playing since I was 5. After moving to Canada I

have played a lot of cricket. I'm doing a lot of trainings every week to become a better player and represent my country. I'm also coaching as a cricket coach to youth cricket at my academy. The main problem I had when we moved to Canada was I couldn't really speak good English. I didn't had a good accent. People used to make fun of me. But I didn't really care about what they think about me.
