“Why suffer when you have Arslan Zafar”

 

Enough of Walls, Let’s build bridges!

 

“Achievement has no color” said Abraham Lincoln, but still why do we define ourselves with color everywhere.

Hello everyone, I am Muhammad Arslan Zafar. I am currently a first year Economics and Management student. Being advertised as a global university, you expect King’s College London to provide a quite interactive student experience. But why do we often see students from a certain ethnicity avoid interacting with students from different ethnicities and culture? This is something that has really concerned me and hence motivated me to act as a catalyst for change.

My first has been a quite challenging year for me. I came here missing the fresher’s month due to visa issues. But coming here, one of my important aims were to make friends from different regions and different cultures. Therefor I tried going to every society’s event and made friends from different part of the world.
