She passed her tenth class from Gujranwala in 1951 and got herself enrolled in F.S.C in Lahore College for Women. However within the two months she fell seriously ill and was advised to stay away from any sort of mental work. Since her childhood, she was made to think that she would have to be a doctor one day so she finished her twelfth class with a private scholarship. After that she did her graduation.
