Karachi, the biggest cosmopolitan city of Pakistan and an indubitable melting pot of an immense

number of different cultures and ethnicities, is the place I was lucky to be born and raised in. This grand

city gave me unlimited opportunities to interact and live with many individuals, each different from the

other, and with a unique set of attributes. From kindergarten, right up to college, my socialization with

people spanning from all walks of life played a vital role in my quest of getting insight into factors shaping

team leader and enforcer who can perform crisis management in high pressure environments.

the world, I came across a motion regarding the Korean Economic Model in one of my economic themed

debates. Having heard the phrase for the first time in my life, naturally, I lost the round. Yet this loss

fueled my appetite for more knowledge about the Korean economic model. As I started my research, I

came across this course being offered by the World Bank with collaboration of the Korea Development

Institute, “Policy Lessons from South Korea's Development”, it became a casket of knowledge of all the

important information about Korean transcendence towards one of the most dynamic economies of the

world, despite having very limited viable natural resources. And this
