Who is Faiqa?

I have been always occupied with awareness and social work. Meanwhile, I was just 10 when I talked about jealousy among the students. I grew up to look around a world with loopholes to be filled. Back in 2018, I was associated with Make a Wish Foundation and helped fulfill the wishes of disabled children.

In 2019, I won an honorable mention for the design of a Co-working and Co-living space hosted by Archiply an International Architectural Workshop. In 2020, I worked with PNCA through a competition. The contest was to bring awareness for a balance between the rapid growth of Pakistan and its resources. 

During COVID-19, I designed an intervention for restaurants that could reduce the spread of the virus. Moreover, I did that by not disturbing the actual interior of the restaurant. The design was a generic intervention that can easily be implemented in restaurants.

The year 2020 has been a year of revolution and adaptability. Meanwhile, I try my best to help society using my creativity and make this world a better place to live in. 

 

Pakistanis are so talented. A young student Muhammad Abdullah just recently broke a world record by scoring the highest marks in the ACCA exam. Meanwhile, another young Physicist broke Newton’s record at the tender age of 16.
