“Vision is not enough, it must be combined with venture. It is not enough to stare up the steps, we must step up the stairs.” (Vaclav Havel)
Vision and action combined are the most powerful force to bring change. Having spent my childhood and teenage in a small city in Layyah, I was raised up by my father, who was a school head master, with such a mindset as to change the world through education. I took admission in Agriculture University Faisalabad, in Bsc. Agri economics. However, my heart was not satisfied and I could never feel connected with this subject. I wanted to pursue a degree that would empower me to bring a powerful and efficient change in the society. Following this vision, I joined GC University Faisalabad and started pursuing Masters in Mass communication. Alhamdulillah’s, I completed my Master’s degree with a CGPA of 3.97 (Bronze medal). It was high time that I pursued M.phil and excel more in this great field.
I Completed my Mphil with the highest CGPA(3.87) and achieved the award of Gold Medal. My Father has played an immense role in getting me closer to my vision and dream, which is to bring a positive change in the world through media and education. To Pursue my vision I joined a TV Channel as a Producer and started many personal projects “Media chunks productions”, Bigss(Entertainment and Counseling) and business project as well. It is like a dream come true. Now Alhamdulillah I have an experience of working with 45 Different National and international Brands.
My life has been a blend of exquisite learning, exposure of media Industry, Public relations and tools of social change. I want to be a change agent who inspires and educate the students to use their energies in productive activities. I always believed that whatever we do, must have a vision and higher goal behind it. Life without a vision is not worth spending. In order to follow your vision, you will definitely face many hurdles and problems, but if you are consistent, persistent and show perseverance, you will ultimately reach your destination.
