"Growing up in a slum of Karachi may not have held many promises for me if a TCF school hadn't opened up in my community. TCF's excellent education is the reason I could bag a competitive Fulbright Scholarship in the U.S."

"Women feel more comfortable opening up to a female officer. And honestly, nothing beats the feeling of solving their cases. It's where I find my peace and joy."
