My Scholarship entry - A 'place' I have visited

Pakistan | Thursday, 3 January 2013 | 5 photos

I studied marketing & now work as a freelance travel writer. I decided not to join the corporate world since I always had sense of freedom within myself for creating something that is beyond working at a desk 9-5. I was born and grew up in a small town surrounded by mountains & lakes in western Pakistan, close to Afghanistan. Later, I moved alone to the metropolitan to study in a university. I would spend my time wandering alone in the city and traveling to faraway places and it was then that I discovered the storyteller in me & I started expressing myself with writing stories. It became important for me to take photos for my stories, especially of the characters to bring more intimacy to the feature. I am passionate about travel and extreme adventures that took me to the 14 day base camp trek of second highest mountain K2. As a writer, I am a keen observer & always find a story in my surrounding. Apart from writing, I want to make more visually strong stories and compelled towards recording moments that may be common or special but reveal unknown to the world. I believe there are stories around us, and some are diminishing with time. I wish to document them all along my travels.
