I am Moiz Amer and I am currently an ACF major at LUMS. I was a cadet back in 2015 and have worked up my way in the command to Base Commander. Buraq has been a life changing event is something you’ll hear pretty much everyone say here but for me what Buraq let me exercise was my leadership skills. I can proudly say that I have put them to good use and have nurtured them through my role in the command. Do register for the upcoming entry test and I hope you get to be a part of the Buraq Family!
