University Backgrounds of Previous Cohort
The Fellowship has given me purpose, direction, and a masterclass in adaptive leadership. I witnessed lives changing for so many people including myself. I am not the same person on the other side of this journey.
If you want to challenge yourself to do something extraordinary, Teach For Pakistan is the place you need to be at.
I wanted to do work that helps me understand the issues facing Pakistan's education sector. In my two years of teaching, I witnessed the glaring absence of participatory policies and the use of data to drive policy decisions.Maryam Khalid Shah MSc. Data Science for Public Policy, George Town University
This led me to pursue a graduate degree in Data Science for Public Policy and focus on equity in policy, driven by the lessons from the Fellowship.
