Abdullah is a sophomore at Kirkland House planning on studying some mixture of Applied Math, Economics and Computer Science (he's as confused as you are). He is the treasurer of the Harvard College Pakistani Students Association, plays for the Harvard Cricket Team (he's mostly benched), and is a member of the college's debate team. Proud of his Pakistani heritage, you can find him in Harvard dining halls, whining about how good Lahori food is in comparison to the bland dishes on the menu most nights of the week. He religiously follows the Pakistan Cricket Team as well as (unfortunately) the Lahore Qalandars, loves listening to independent Pakistani artists and enjoys reading about history and politics.
