Haseeb Ahsan Javed is a National Outreach Program (NOP) scholar, who recently graduated from LUMS, completing his BA-LL.B (Honors).

"Law was the last choice on my priority list when I applied to LUMS. I was least interested in pursuing this degree.  However, despite my personal inclinations, I decided to study law (a decision which I certainly do not regret) because the National Outreach Program was the only hope for me to continue my education and obtain a degree from a renowned institution."

Belonging to a humble background, Haseeb's father passed away when he was only 6 months old. He was raised by his grandfather and his mother. The struggles that he encountered growing up, motivated him to work hard and stay committed to his studies. His hard work ultimately paid off when he was granted a scholarship in F.Sc, and was, subsequently, selected as an NOP scholar.

"Life at LUMS was a difficult yet an exhilarating journey, which gave me the opportunity to prosper and become who I am – a more confident and definitely a more refined person. During my five years at LUMS, I came across, and made friends with people from extremely diverse backgrounds, with different life stories and experiences to share, which all added to my life experience. I had a hard time adjusting to the new life, but in retrospect, I realize that without those challenging days (which include failing a few subjects and falling below the minimum GPA requirement to retain my scholarship!), I wouldn’t be where I am now. LUMS taught me to never give up, no matter what the circumstances are."

During his stay at LUMS, Haseeb became a part of number of societies. He also conducted information sessions and coaching classes in his hometown, for students who were interested in applying to LUMS. He assisted them in the admission process, and prepared them for the admission test as well.  Owing to Haseeb’s effort and guidance, a number of students received NOP scholarship, and are currently studying at LUMS. During the last two years of his degree, Haseeb was given the opportunity by one of his instructors to work at his law firm, who described Haseeb’s journey as "per aspera ad astra"

"Life after LUMS is definitely not a piece of cake. But there is no denying that LUMS has prepared me well to face the challenges that I am encountering, and will encounter in the future, as I strive to attain my goals and dreams."
