84 years of family history for new graduate

Adnan Intekhab graduated on Tuesday 13 December, proudly wearing the University of Leeds pin that belonged to his great-grandfather, who graduated 84 years ago. 

Motaber Khan attended the University from 1929-1932, graduating as a Bachelor of Commerce. 

Adnan, 24, is also a Bachelor of Commerce, having studied at his home university in Hyderabad from 2011-2014 before choosing Leeds for an MSc Global Supply Chain Management.

“I was interested in studying at the University of Leeds because of the family connection.” said Adnan. “I have loved my time at Leeds.

I have been able to retrace my great-grandfather’s footsteps; for example, he lived on Regent Park Terrace, Hyde Park and I lived nearby on St. Mark's Street. It is still a residential place inhabited by students – it is strange to think of him being there all those years ago.”
