Danish Ali

Hello!

My name is Danish Ali, and I am a junior majoring in Accounting and Finance at the University of Texas at Arlington. I am an international student, born and raised in Pakistan. I transferred from Collin Community College a year ago. The transition from the Eastern to the Western world is a bit challenging, especially as I did not have my parents around. But this experience has made me independent and helped to face and prepare for upcoming challenges. My mentors and advisors were really helpful while I was settling in the new atmosphere. Guiding me through the challenges and helping me understand the education system here. I enjoy teaching as I would like to use my knowledge in any capacity to help people out. Other than attending classes and trying to settle here, I am very passionate about my hobbies such as photography and playing some sports like ping pong, tennis, and volunteering at charitable events. I am also part of Beta Alpha Psi, an accounting honors society where we interact with accounting professionals. Other than this I also volunteer at the charitable events of Aga Khan foundation where the fundraiser is for poverty alleviation and education.
