When I first decided to be an event producer, I thought my work could do a difference in people’s lives, that I could bring them joy.
Later on, I started studying Human Rights. How we can, as individuals, as society, be held accountable for every human being on earth.
Almost ten years have gone by. And every time I think I overachieved, a new job comes in to prove me wrong.
We just finished Malala’s visit to Brasil. And, as a woman, as an activist, as an event manager, I couldn’t be happier or prouder. Proud of the flawless service we delivered. Proud of what my team, vendors and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs were able to pull together. And happy to fly home today and say to my family: Hey, you know, I did something meaningful today.
I’m grateful for the profession I carry as a faith. Grateful for having seen Malala and Zia together and recognized myself and my beloved father in them. Grateful for having seen a lot of girls experience things that, if not through sports, music, and education, they would never have experienced.
Some people work for the money. Some for the PR. As for me, I’d have done it all for free and it would still have been worth it.
I am honored. Thank you, Malala, Zia, and MF team: Thank you. #eventmanagement #humanrights #malalafund #girlseducation #worklover #activism #womensrights
