Asher’s Story: The Proud Son of a Pakistani Presbyterian Minister

Education is important to me because provides stability, self-confidence, and chances for better career opportunities, which leads to better financial security. A good education will help me support my family, and it’s a vital part of feeling accepted by those around me.

For the world to become equal, it needs to start with education. Education is our most powerful weapon for making dreams come true.

My father and mother are raising my elder sister and me. My father is an assistant director at an NGO, and my mother works as a training & and follow-up supervisor. Even though they want the best education for us, my parents cannot afford to pay university tuition because of financial restrictions. 

I am immensely proud to be the grandson of a dedicated Presbyterian who passionately served the church and played a role in the denationalization of FCCU. I am honored and humbled to be part of this esteemed institution.

My elder sister recently completed her Master of Divinity and volunteers with our local church. 

My primary goal in choosing to attend FCCU was to obtain an exceptional education. The campus environment and academic facilities were genuinely inspiring. They offer plenty of extracurricular activities and opportunities to study abroad.

FCCU is a place where everyone is welcome regardless of where they are from or which religion they belong to.
