Employee Spotlight: Muhammad Tayyab Asghar

  It takes weeks to get Muhammad Tayyab Asghar to sit down for an interview. Initially we chalk this up to a certain strain of modesty but when he finally consents to talking about himself it is immediately apparent why the delay occurred. Tayyab is quietly brilliant and genuinely focused on his work. He is, it is clear, not a man who gives his time to something unless he can give it his complete and utter focus. This is why he is the perfect fit for Technology Manager at Knowledge Platform, a designation that requires him to continuously develop and implement new products. He is also the one of the main people driving the development of Ultrabot 10, one of […]

A Day in the Life of a Class 10 Student

The Fall Challenge has now ended. However, we’re so pleased by the relationships we’ve built with participants through LSP that we wanted to continue on in the spirit of community discussion.

Employee Spotlight: Sajid Ali Anjum

The Games and Mobile Department sits in a wide, relatively high ceiling-ed room. Wadood Ahmad is at the far end facing the entrance to the room. To his left and right are the other team members. Often, a casual passer-by can see the team swiveling around on their chairs, animatedly talking to each other. Sometimes the Games and Mobile department is dead quiet as everyone works to meet deadlines. Sajid Ali Anjum, it is clear, is an integral part of the team. He has a palpably contagious energy and he seems to be always having fun. In fact you would be hard pressed to find a person more ready to have a laugh than Sajid. As Lead Game Developer, he brings a blend of […]

Letters to My Future Self

Editor’s note: This week, as part of a task that would help us choose Learn Smart Pakistan Ambassadors, we asked LSP participants to write letters to their future 30 year old selves. The idea was to pick the writers of the best two letters as our Ambassadors.  The deadline for the task ended yesterday at noon. However, we are continuing to receive notes from students and can safely say: they’re absolutely amazing.  These letters talk about religion, parents, Angeline Jolie, the fear of failure, marriage, independence, the need for acceptance, the desire to fit in. They remind us why its useful (from time to time) to wear our hearts on our sleeves and hope for the best.   What follows this small […]
