Few words from Shahid
“Being a part of this organization, it gives me a lot of happiness and joy that words can never describe. With multiple information providing channels, students find it difficult to understand the confusion related to colleges, admissions, and related information. I find this challenge as a tough patch and enjoy the process of making articles more concise. As a person from a strong and sound academic background, I always make sure that any kind of confusion must come down to simplicity.
Not just deciding which college to get in, but knowing which course suits the interest of a student keeping the scores in my mind must be the brainstorming part. Apart from this, I really prefer to make my after-office hours productive by participating in NGOs, theater, stand up comedy, public meetups etc.
