Do you know that a simple girl has become the youngest Mount Everest climber? How cool is that?
A simple Pakistani girl from Gilgit-Baltistan achieved this extraordinary record which means as a national we have something worthy in our buckets.
There is no doubt the talent of Pakistani youth has been crushed for many years due to different reasons but time is proving that in terms of natural talent, Pakistanis are the most talented youth the world has ever seen.
Records in technology, sports, education, arts, engineering, politics and computer science without the availability of proper structure and facilities prove that Sky has no limits for green flag holders.
In this context I have listed out some of the most talented youth of Pakistan which has inspired me a lot and they are from diverse backgrounds, working diligently to promote a pro-Pakistan image abroad.
