Interesting Facts About Me

Growing up I was a taekwondo athlete, and I would compete in multiple tournaments across Australia. My biggest achievements include getting my black belt, becoming a Queensland champion and 3rd place in Australia.

My background is Pakistani; however, I am BYElingual, do not play cricket or eat spicy food. My parents are disappointed, but they still love me!

Let Me Tell You A Story…

I was bodyboarding with two of my mates at the Gold Coast sitting behind the waves. I noticed a fin sticking out of the water. I have never screamed so loud in my life! I swam so fast back to shore, leaving my friends to fend for themselves. Instead of screaming and following my lead, I looked back, and they were LAUGHING! I later found out it was in fact not a shark, but a small dolphin – I still refused to get back in the water.
