Zara Naeem has thanked her father for giving her the education, appreciation, and encouragement to succeed. She also added that her father motivated her to work hard which ensured her success. In an Instagram post, Zara claimed her father was her ‘hero’. Her father, being a military officer, was the main source of her inspiration.
She said My father is a true role model for me. I grew up seeing him reaching great heights in his military service that always inspired me to follow in his footsteps.
She further added, “Seeing his gold medal that he was awarded his MBA made me challenge myself to live up to his legacy by dedicating myself fully to my studies.”
When asked why ACCA, she said it was the ultimate choice for her because a soldier’s family is always on the go.
“ACCA was a natural choice for me. Most military families move every few years, so I always knew I needed a qualification that ensures flexibility and offers global mobility.
