The Heros Within Series I : Shaukat Ali Khan

The Heros Within Series I : Shaukat Ali Khan

“My firm belief in my religion and the teachings of my Father, the Late Tullah Khan, have helped me a lot in my life. My father had always been a great source of inspiration for me. He was a man of principles who passed down the long held family tradition of community service and social work to his children.

Besides the birth of my children, the most auspicious moment of my life was when His Highness Prince Karim Aga Khan appointed me as a member of National Council for United Kingdom.

Failures, despite being a major set back in life, help us grow as better individuals. I always reflect upon the setbacks in my life and learn from them in order to put myself in the right direction. I embrace moments of accomplishments by thanking God Almighty, and acknowledging the support of my family and friends. Above all, I seek humility in success.

The ultimate aim of my life is to become a humble and prolific member of my community, contributing in the improvement of the education sector and the overall development in the Gilgit Baltistan region of Pakistan.

(Shaukat Ali, Gilgit)
