Dar has created history by setting a world record in the ACCA examination which is held at a global level in the Chartered Accountant field.
This exam takes place in nearly 179 countries around the world. Zara is a student of the Financial Reporting subject. More so, above 527,000 students participated in this examination.
“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.” Zara said in an interview.
Explaining the reason for choosing ACCA, Dar shared, “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.”
“With bodies like ACCA opening access, you will be surprised to learn that ACCA now has a female student base of 58%. With more women than ever looking to become professional accountants. So yes, get ready to see cracks in the glass ceiling.”
