dc.description This recording and transcript form part of a collection of oral history interviews conducted by the Chao Center for Asian Studies at Rice University. This collection includes audio recordings and transcripts of interviews with Asian Americans native to or living in Houston.
dc.description.abstract Shahid Javed was born in Lahore, Pakistan, in 1967. Today, 47 year-old Shahid lives in Houston with his wife and two daughters. He is currently employed at BP in Houston, but the journey that brought him here is a fascinating story about a self-made man striving for the classic American dream: achievement and success through hard work and “a little bit of luck.” His path took him from Pakistan, through Georgia Tech and Stanford University, and through several jobs at A.T Kearney, Transora, and others, along with several relocations before ending up at BP.
