Assistant Counsellor


Working as an Assistant counsellor with Ad Astra.

My name is Marziya Farooq and I am a recent graduate of LUMS with a bachelors in Economics and a minor in History.

An aspiring academic with a passion for community service and women’s rights, I have always geared towards doing activities where I feel I can give back to the community, however, minute the contribution is.  Hence, AdAstra is the perfect place to work. I have always loved working with students and over here not only do I get to help them make, perhaps one of the most important decisions in their lives but I also help prepare them for that journey.

Deciding which university to go to and how to apply for it is a challenging and mentally exhausting process, for both the students and the parents alike. As an assistant counselor, my goal is to make sure all the students who come here feel supported and guided. By focusing on each student’s strengths and individuality, I want to show the students I counsel that they are important and valuable people of society and nothing makes me happier than opening a world of opportunities for students and helping them find a college that fits.
