About: Kalsoom

I grew up in Islamabad, Pakistan, and received a Bachelors degree in Foreign Affairs and Middle East Studies from the University of Virginia and a Masters in International Affairs/Conflict Resolution from the George Washington University’s Elliott School of International Affairs. I was previously an analyst for a strategic communications firm, and currently head the social investment side of ML Resources, a small private investment firm, where I assess funding and provide support & insight for capacity-building and institution-strengthening projects and organizations, [mainly in Pakistan]. My strengths and interests tend to be counter-terrorism and counterinsurgency strategy and tactics, but this website and my current line of work have broadened my knowledge base to include all kinds of societal topics and issues pertaining to Pakistan.
