Story of Balochi Girl UET Lahore
*All your life they will tell you NO, quite firmly and very quickly, YOU TELL THEM YES.*
Despite being raised in a Baluchi family where studying isn’t considered important enough, my parents were quite supportive. After clearing my FSc, the question of my graduate studies was raised. Most of my relatives thought that i won’t make it to university and in case if I do, I won’t be able to make it work there. My father who has always proved to be the most supportive person all along, didn’t let my morale go to trash and sent me to another another city for my engineering. It didn’t end there.
I still remember the initial days of the classes, when teachers asked about marks, I was the only one having marks in 800’s amongst top scoring geeks. That day, a threshold was set, and they used to say, “If she can clear my subject, everyone can.”
Those little things disappointed me but I worked harder, smarter and I even got scores more than former top scorers. During my 3 and a half years, there have been ups and downs, but the thought of my parents kept me going.
I do what I love, I ride a bicycle in the university, I have been to many places, had a lot of fun and yes! Questions are raised, fingers are pointed towards me, about my methods and all. But I wouldn’t be what I am today If I had listened to people.
