My name is Hassan often people call me Hasan but my full name is Hassan Habib Khan. I was born in Karachi (Pakistan) which is in the state of Sindh. Basically, Karachi is the economic hub of Pakistan and biggest city of Pakistan as well. In Pakistan, I was living with my mother and two younger brothers. My family and friends describe me as a quiet and a reliable person.
In Pakistan most children start their schooling at age of three. I started and completed my schooling at Iqra Public School; these were my stress free days. This is different from Australia, where Primary School is from K-6 and 7-12 is High School and then University. In Pakistan the education system is divided into five levels: Primary School (Grades One through to Five); Middle School (Grades Six through to Eight) and High School (Grades Nine and Ten), leading to the Secondary School Certificate; Intermediate (Grades Eleven and Twelve, leading to a Higher Secondary School Certificate; and university programs leading to graduate and advanced degrees.
I have done my high schooling from St. Peter's High School, Karachi. In High School, I had many friends who are still my best friends, although we have gone our separate ways. In school I participated in the Annual School Function where I was given the opportunity to begin the program by reciting from the Quran (The Holy book), this is considered a great honour. I was an all-rounder student; I took part in the school’s Drama performance, the main theme of the drama was to present our personal view about how we valued our education. I completed my HSC from Government National College, Karachi.
After completing my HSC I was offered a place in the Bachelor of Software Engineering program at the University of Karachi (UoK) which is a public research university and is also one of the oldest universities in Pakistan. After studying for one and a half years at UoK I got an admission at Southern Cross University (SCU) on an advanced standing of 12 credit hours in the Bachelor of Information Technology (Software Development Major). So, basically I have one and a half years to complete this degree here at SCU, Sydney Campus.
I have had a passion for IT since High School so that is why I chose IT (Software Development Major). After completing this course, I can work in a Software Firm or IT Company as a Software Analyst or Junior Software Developer beside that I also have a Networking Course so maybe I can progress in the Networking field as a Network Administrator or something similar.
Beside studying I love to read blogs such as:
Propakistani is a blog, which is run by Pakistani IT blogger Amir Atta. The blog posts here are about technological advancements in Pakistan's IT industry also, the innovations overall the IT industry in the world. However, its focus is on Pakistan's IT industry.
This is also run by Pakistani blogger in the same areas as of propakistani.
As an all-rounder, I also love to play and watch cricket and play video games.
