“Failure is the result of giving up hope. If you stick to hope you will have no failure. My elder sister is my inspiration in the life. Born in Hundur, Yasin Valley, Ghizer, GB, I started my educational career from the Federal Government Boys School of my village. I got admitted in DG School, Gilgit and completed primary education from there. I did middle schooling from Army Public School (HS), Gilgit. I remained first position holder throughout primary and middle education. After completing middle school, I got admission in Aga Khan Higher Secondary School, Gilgit and completed SSC. Again, I remained a position holder in board examinations.
I always participated in extra-curricular activities. I received my Mechanical Engineering degree from UET, Taxila. During the four years stay at UET, I represented the University in all outdoor games including football, volleyball, rock climbing, and swimming. After graduation, I joined the Pakistan Air Force as a commissioned uniformed officer. I served all over Pakistan. and currently, posted in Gilgit as an Engineering Officer.”
