Faaiza graduated with an MSc in Development Studies from the London School of Economics and received my BA in Political Science Honors from Lady Shri Ram College, University of Delhi.
As she was interested in international development and public policy, she worked and consulted with organizations such as CIFF UK (The Children’s Investment Fund Foundation), Global March Against Child Labor, WWF (World Wide Fund for Nature) and others, working on issues related to child protection and sustainable development.
Most recently, Faaiza worked as a college counselor and writing mentor at an education consultancy in New Delhi. Mentoring students, guiding them during their college application cycle and working with them on essays, research papers and interesting intellectual projects was an extremely enriching experience. At Ascend Now, she supports students in their academic growth and development. She also wants to inspire them to initiate change and make a positive impact on society.
