2012, a great year it was. Full of learning, growth and development. Starting from TEDxKinnaird. Giving up on Thiel’s 100000$ fellowship. The mini adventurous hiking trip. I die on tumblr, yeah the worst part but then i came back to life or maybe im a ghost? The longest road trip of my life lasting around 18 hours. Missing a chance to get to see Bill gates in person. The CIE Preparation break and the CIE itself. The summers and Rodain Lala died :( Dancing like crazies while getting my result. The unforgettable Iftari For Poor 2012. The Ass Tapping group, oh yes the craziest days of 2012. The shortlisting of my name in top 25 young influential leaders list of Youth Service America. BBC Urdu Interview followed by a fun trip. Making it to Express Tribune Sunday Magazine. Started writing for Huffington Post. Fill The Gap 2012. Winning the Global Village at CSMUN. Best Birthday ever and yeah i turned 18. Lights Camera Action. SICA’s Business Challenge. The NYE with my best mates.
Much more that i missed out. 2012 was indeed a great year. Thanks to God for a perfect year and i believe 2013 would be much better.
Okay, this is the moment. I feel proud to tell everyone that i’m in the Youth Service America’s List of The 25 Most Powerful and Influential Young People around the world. Being one from Pakistan is another great thing to it. With the YSA List, they recognize and reward 25 incredible young people, and we hold them up as examples of what young people are doing all over the planet. List is also about changing perceptions.
Being in those 25 people, i feel great, representing Pakistan this far was unbelievable. Shukar-Al Hamdulillah! Thank you Allah.
