Pakistanis are not afraid of heights and are scouring new mountains of success. No literally, Samina Baig, raised the head of all Pakistanis with pride when she became the first Pakistani to conquer the threatening height of Mount Everest.   Samina at the age of 21 is also the youngest girl to do so. She comes from the mountainous regions of Gilgit Baltistan and has been a mountaineer since the age of 4 when I was eating cereal. Her craze for mountaineering has taken her to numerous cliffs and heights and she is driven to defeat them all.

He has, amazingly set up his own computer lab at his home and developed a network, which he proudly calls his own network. He loves computers and likes to spend most of his time in his lab.

All of these people are a source of motivation and inspiration for all of us to idealize as they have accomplished in their respective fields, not what everyone could accomplish. If we follow in their footsteps and show the same level of dedication and devotion to our work, we too are on the same path as these people and may one day end on their spots.
