A story not to be missed."My dad is a fruit seller on a street in Karachi. He made sure my brother and sister and I go to school because he believes education will improve our financial situation and also help level the playing field for many others like me. It’s been a long journey for me from school to O’levels and A’levels from one of the most prestigious institutions in Karachi which was possible through a part merit based scholarship and part sponsorship by a wonderful ex teacher who believed in me. Last month, I got my acceptance letter from McGill University.All I dream of now, is finding enough funding or being granted a full scholarship so that I can actually go.”He did not let me click his face. His friends and peers who he studied with do not know his story because all he really wanted was to fit in. He still believes his journey is incomplete and there is much to be achieved. He also wants to be able to sponsor someone like himself one day. This photograph was taken at his father’s fruit cart where this boy sat (and still sits) every evening after school (and now work) to help his old man by giving him a break and asking him to go rest while he takes over his work.
