Too loud to SPEAK? WRITE them OFF !!!

Feb 10, 2022 9 months ago

This is the true story of a girl who was born in an area where writing her diaries could only yield her happiness as the prevailing environment was that unhealthy for a young girl. She rose in an environment where the existence of being a girl was nothing more than marrying early or handing over her fate to the next strange man as her husband. Did she ever think? What! Writing her best wishes and those impossible dreams in hidden old diaries would make sense later? No, she hadn't thought of it that way but it always urged her to escape the entire negative aroma of writing her dreams to be saved into pieces of paper. What were the utmost goals for her at such young age? She always wanted to stay different. She was rebellious to those norms. She wanted to fight stereotypes. She never wanted to be one of the hundreds of common girls living one common life. She was different. She knew it from early childhood while counting far away in the sky stars in the sky. She was always determined to be one of those yet waiting to shine. She used to say to her diary; that she was born to fly as its main title. The girls would laugh at what heights she wanted to reach. She never minds it. Though the whole environment depicts the devastating picture of women and girls living no right to live hence she could only view it through her lens. She never understood why they were very fine with that scenery of their life which is painted by others – the canvas was always throwing the colors by circumstances. She wanted to fill her colors. She never wants to give ownership to others. She witnessed many young girls even her friends dropping school and then marrying at an early age with no resistance. She witnessed her school not allowing girls to join sports with so many useless norms which made no sense to her. On the other hand, she was telling her diary to remember that she would have to travel the world yet, she would have to study for for her higher education diploma yet, and she would have ther o raise voice for them yet, and so on. It is the story of a girl who kept believing in her words and made her diary her best friend. She pointed it out wherever she felt it needed to be changed. She joined sports and led a girl's team from a rural area to a big city on a national level. This happened for the very first time but she had to do it. She then enrolled in a higher degree education program for aviation management studies and led successfully four years of a forum called aviation literary forum. She became raising the first Pakistani voice for those 31% of rural women around the globe. She traveled to world-class conferences to speak and highlight women's rights. She is now a name just like a STAR. Do you know why her story matters the most? Because whatever she wrote in the diaries back in her childhood she is living most of these at her young age now. This is the power of words which should never be underestimated. She once yelled it saying: too loud to speak. Write them off!
