Holding the position of a chemistry teacher at APS, Hajra Sharif had the knack of controlling a class effectively, and was very well-rounded in her subject, her colleagues say. She was helpful and polite to work with, and proved her mettle in a very short time.

Even her students inject that even though chemistry was a dull and boring subject, they thoroughly enjoyed her lectures and never bunked her classes.

According to Hajra’s siblings, she emphasised a great deal on women’s education, and her aim was to open a girls’ school in Karak.

A lover of Australian birds, she took immense care of birds in her native village.

Her brother says that she was his mentor and it was as per her wish that he joined APS.
