A bit on the crazy side, I’m a Pakistani, I am a Muslim woman and yet I don’t fit the usual stereotypes people lump Islam’s followers into. As far as I remember, I was always perplexed with the unfriendly society and cultural norms of my country. I never realized that such an experience would have a strong effect on me to use my freedom with a sense of responsibility for human rights.
A human rights journalist-activist and a gender trainer, I have ample experience of working in h working in humanitarian sector. Being a woman and being a journalist in a developing country as Pakistan has been rough, challenging, but very rewarding. Most of my career has been spent in being a field reporter, trainer and being amongst the people, in particular women and children is something I cherish and enjoy the most.
Hence the blog, as in my free time I like to talk to about things that I see in my country or abroad. in my free time I like to blog about human rights issues that I see in my country, or abroad.
My areas of work includee variety of social issues, disasters, emergencies, conflict reporting and women rights issues. Additionally, I have been involved in several capacity building initiatives, plus certified trainer on human rights, peace-building and conflict resolution.
For my work, I extensively travel within Pakistan. The other countries I traveled for work purposes include: India, Nepal, Afghanistan, Thailand, Malaysia, Iran, Syria, UAE, Jordan, Algeria, Belgium, France, Austria, Germany, Italy, Spain, Slovenia and this journey continues.
