By focusing on early childhood education, we can build a strong foundation for lifelong growth and empowerment. I am committed to championing initiatives that provide quality education to all girls, empowering them to overcome challenges and achieve their dreams from an early age.”

Mountain climbing achievements

  • Record climber: the only Pakistani woman and the third Pakistani to climb 11 of the world’s 14 highest peaks above 8,000 meters.
  • Speed ​​Climbing: The only Pakistani to climb seven peaks above 8,000 meters in less than six months, achieving this feat in 2023.
