Youth Success Stories from Pakistan: Who can lead the Nation?
The International Society for Research on Children and Youth (ISCRY) in collaboration with The International Institute of Knowledge Management (TIIKM) as the Associate Partner hosted a webinar on the International Youth Day (12th August 2020) under the title “Youth Success Stories from Pakistan: Who can lead the Nation?”.
This webinar was organized to share the stories of outstanding Pakistani youth. The main purpose of this webinar was to encourage and motivate the young generation and the young leaders in the world. The webinar was moderated by Rameen Mehmood (Media personality) along with Aliza Khanum (Pakistani Freelancer) Usama Virk (Pakistani Broadcast Producer) Dr. Haseeb Ur Rehman (Sports Champion) and Abbas Ali Sherazi (UN Ambassador of Pakistan). They all discussed their struggles, challenges, and the problems faced by the young generation currently.
Aliza Khanum discussed the future of youth in freelancing and explained why Pakistan is still lagging behind in freelancing when youth work so hard. She provided solutions and in the case of Pakistani youth, they will have to work more on improving their communication skills if they want to become freelancers. Nowadays, youth can earn easily in freelancing and there is no need for a Special Degree for it. She also shared that the platform which ISCRY is giving to the youth all around the world is certainly a great opportunity. Usama Virk shared about the broadcast opportunities and the difficulties for the young generation and the freedom of speech in the society of people where the difference of opinion is not much appreciated and encouraged youth to be motivated when losing hope. Dr. Haseeb shared that sports has always been a healthy activity for the youngsters and it’s always a proud moment for a man to present his country globally in sports. Abbas Ali Sherazi shared his experience at various platforms and he is a living example for the youth for engaging people globally for a better cause and he expressed that youth can do anything if they have the “will”.
With that the one-hour session was wrapped up and it was an interactive session for all the young people to get some motivation in their life. Youth from Pakistan are really thankful to the ISCRY Association for providing the platform for them to share their ideas on a special day like the“International Youth Day”.
