Muhammad Abdurrehman Asif

Student
Minerva Schools at KGI

Muhammad Abdurrehman Asif is from Pakistan, currently living in the United States. He is avidly interested in Technology, Finance, Social impact and Education. Coming from Pakistan, he has seen how genius minds don't always have a positive way to channel their intellect. This observation fuelled a desire to work for a reformed education system. This reformed system would not reward people based solely on their ability to memorize mathematical or scientific formulas but for talents such as art and music. Through his experiences of travelling and meeting new people, he has seen the world through many different lenses, finding the truth in the idea that each person is unique. He has always found it a privilege to be educated, one that unfortunately not many people experience. Henceforth, he has always been keen to find ways to make education more inclusive, affordable and useful for society in the future.
