My passion for nutrition stems back to my teenage years when I became interested in studying the impact of food on our health. I did my BSc (Hons) degree in Food Science and Nutrition from Islamabad. I then volunteered and got the experience of working in the health care sector before landing as a Dietitian at Shifa International Hospital.
I wanted to expand and update my knowledge, so I chose to do a Masters’s course in the UK. While in the UK, I worked at Holland and Barrett, MetMUnch, and also volunteered in community organizations to create awareness about healthy eating and lifestyle.

To bridge the gap between scientific research and latest developments in nutrition, and health advice.
