Achievement of Sahara Hamza, from Singul, Ghizer


Achievement of Sahara Hamza, from Singul, Ghizer

"I'm from a very aesthetic, beautiful place which is very close to nature and surrounded by very high mountains; Yes it is Gilgit-BaltistanI started my educational journey from a public school in Bubur, Sun Shine Public school Bubur. The most crucial step in one’s life is the elementary schooling because it provides credible foundation of one's life. I would say that this school made my base very strong enough to sustain various ups and downs in life, by letting me to have access to quality education.
I moved to Singal -a more developed town- with my family and got admission in Diamond Jubilee High school Singal for my primary education. Getting education is a challenge in itself, because it is the most genuine way to make our individuality recognisable in this world of individual struggle. When I moved for higher education, I faced a lot of difficulties, yet I remained persistant to my hard work and strenuous efforts which turned obstacles into opportunities. I kept on achieving excellent grades in Diamond Jubilee High school.
In order to get the higher plus quality education I applied for the prestigious Aga Khan Higher Secondary School, Gahkuch because, it appreciates diversity and inculcates a good sense of tolerance in the students. I was among the top four students for Aga Khan Higher Secondary School, Gahkuch.This was the turning point of my life because I was aware of the fact that Aga Khan Higher Secondary School, Gahkuch is going to being the best out of me. We were students from different areas of Gilgit-Baltistan and we had a diversity in terms of culture, language and ethnic backgrounds.
My achievements at the school were up to my abilities and I achieved what I desired despite the obstacles in my way. The well-connected institute changed my life. Besides providing quality education it provides students with various opportunities like sports, extracurricular and diversified environment where one can explore different cultures and enhance his/her skills. I tried to utilize the opportunities provided by my school in broadening my dreams.
I applied for an internstional scholarship named as UWC (UNITED WORLD COLLEGES); this is a scholarship for students who want to study abroad experiencing different cultures in which one gets to know about students from various nationalities around the world. The students from all over Pakistan apply for this magnificent scholarship. I came to know about this scholarship through my school administration and then life gave me an incredible occasion when I heard that I am selected for this scholarship. Now, I'm studying at a UWC College in Norway.
This journey could not sound that smooth and beautiful if I was not supported by my dearly loved parents. They have always been helping hands and are certainly jugular vein of my life. They have made me know how to adopt a positive attitude towards life, they encouraged my spirits, and their support is unparalleled.
I would encourage youth to take part in extracurricular activities and competitive sports in order to understand the real meaning of education besides learning material from the book."
