Lilly Chaudry

I was born in Pakistan and came to the US at 3 years old. I grew up in Maryland most of my life. I have a BS and MS in the field of Information Technology (IT), and have worked for over a decade in the field of IT. But I have always been interested in self-help books, talks and just trying to get to the most positive place within myself as I possibly can. But it is hearing QAS’s talks that really inspired me to start this podcast. And since he lectures exclusively in the Urdu language, I wanted to create a way for an English-speaking audience to also benefit from his teachings, including myself. And I am also hoping to create a way for others less fortunate to really benefit from this podcast…details coming soon!
