I a feminist, peace activist and is working for the empowerment of young women. At the age of 15, with my sister Gulalai and other young women fellows I co-founded "Aware Girls"; a young women led organization working for empowering young women by strengthening the leadership capacity of young women enabling them to work for social change and women empowerment, and advocate for equal access of women to health, education, governance, political participation, and other social services. I would like to get connected with other organizations working in the same issues.

I am looking forward to hear and learn more about the laws in different countries and how to get jobs as someone who is new in the field.
