I am Nasira, born and brought up in Pakistan,I graduated in Plant Sciences and Education. I worked as a life Sciences teacher in Pakistan and United Arab Emirates for the past eleven years and got a chance to interact with the students and teachers from about forty different nationalities.
I am passionate about meeting people from multicultural backgrounds and in sharing knowledge about how they connect themselves with their agriculture, its practices and technologies in their own unique ways.I have a beautiful eleven years old daughter, SHANZAY, my biggest motivation in life. She makes me think about the interests of today’s children that help me in thinking in an innovative and creative way to reach the children.
I hold onto a quote by the writer James Baldwin:
“The world is before you, and you need not take it or leave it as it was when you came in”
This always sounds like something I want to do and that is something what has drawn me to join AITC-SK
as a Program Coordinator of Little Green Thumbs.
The moment I entered the world, I knew I had reached it.
