About

As a youth activist I have had the privilege of working on various projects with many prestigious organizations.

“I have spoken at the United Nations, done projects with UNICEF Headquarters and worked with WWF-Pakistan as their youngest employee.”

I represented Pakistan as a young cultural ambassador as part of the Youth Exchange and Study (YES) programme in the year 2009-2010. Besides this I am also the youngest member of the National Council of Environmental Journalist.
My efforts on environmental awareness and civic service was recognized by Barack Obama who sent a Letter of Recognition for my excelled activism. I have also participated in the Secretary General’s High Level Summit on Climate Change held at UN Headquarters, NYC in Sep 2009. Moreover, was a Youth Delegate at the 20th Anniversary of the Convention of the Rights of the Child [CRC 20] held in Nov 2009 at NYC. I have contributed to UNICEF’s State of the World’s Children 2011 report and have worked as a blogger for Bertelsmann Stiftung Future Challenges.

I continue my activism to the limitations of my capabilities in Pakistan and beyond.
