DCLead Track: POLINN
BA: BA (Hon.) in Journalism, Beaconhouse National University, Lahore
Worked as: Communication Officer, Online Outreach Worker and Social Media Manager for a couple of NGOs in Pakistan.
I have chosen DCLead because:
Because of where I come from. I come from a city (Quetta) surrounded by violence, injustice and despair. It is a country (Pakistan) where communication is overlooked despite a rapidly growing digital and mass media footprint. I have ridiculously high expectations of DCLead. So many viewpoints, cultures and countries are represented by the peers I will encounter and from the teachers I will learn from. The interdisciplinary nature of the program, encompassing all aspects of digital communication, makes it a perfect match for me which is aligned with my educational background, work experience and future goals.
