Goodbyes are always hard to say and even harder when you love the people and the environment. My AMAL fellowship came to an end last week. It was a 3-month long fellowship full of learnings, new and better experiences, improvements and of course amazing people in this fellowship made it more amazing.

Last session is still really close to my heart because it was nothing like the other sessions where we were given a task and had to complete in a specific time. This session was entirely different. …


“Technology is best when it brings people together.”

Ever since we started our project, we have been on a roller coaster of learning and experiencing new things. With Tech Nation, we have been able to develop not just some technical skills but soft skills such as teamwork, leadership, problem solving, networking etc. as well. Our project has continued to grow better and better and we can proudly say that we have made a difference not in just other people’s life but our lives as well. Lets have a look at our project’s progress.

Often in our lives we are faced by challenges and difficulties that try to take us down. Sometimes life throws bricks at us but the strongest of the people make castle out of that bricks. It depends on us that how we react to a certain situation.

Not long time ago when I started my AMAL fellowship, I was already occupied with a lot of other things. I was unable to do justice to all the things so ultimately, with a heavy heart, I decided to drop out of the AMAL fellowship. I talked to my Program Associate about it…


“Technology is best when it brings people together.”

As technology becomes ever more present in our daily lives, mastering basic computer programming no longer represents just a smart, forward-thinking exercise idea for progressive families, but rather a necessity for grown-ups and kids alike.

Today, even kindergartners can be taught the basics of writing code. Acquiring these skills at such a young age will greatly influence their overall development, and studies have shown that coding strengthens other academic areas such as reading, spelling, and math.

People who master coding and programming logic will blossom into better problem solvers, and will also…


‘You don’t have to be great to start, but you must start to be great.’

Last two weeks have been pretty hectic and great too. Collecting funds for Edhi Foundation has been an uphill task but together we did it. Our circle collaborated with circle 4 to reach a greater audience. We have been able to collect Rs. 17,992 amount till now.

The experience of collecting funds was very new and different for us because it was our first time doing something like this. We were anxious when we came to know about this activity because we had no idea…


The secret to effective time management is…thinking in tomatoes rather than hours? It may seem silly at first, but millions of people swear by the life-changing power to the Pomodoro Technique. (Pomodoro is Italian for tomato.)

This popular time management method asks you to alternate pomodoros — focused work sessions — with frequent short breaks to promote sustained concentration and stave off mental fatigue.

What is the Pomodoro Technique?

The Pomodoro Technique is a time management system that encourages people to work with the time they have — rather than against it. Using this method, you break your workday into…


As technology becomes ever more present in our daily lives, mastering basic computer programming no longer represents just a smart, forward-thinking exercise idea for progressive families, but rather a necessity for grown-ups and kids alike. In fact, programming for kids is becoming an increasingly popular topic.

“If you find a path with no obstacles, it probably doesn’t lead anywhere.”

Life is full of ups and downs. We often get faced by failures and it is completely normal to become preoccupied by the idea that you cannot achieve anything in your life. But hold on, there is a better way to deal with failures and that is, yes you guessed it right, growth mindset.

You might be wondering that what growth mindset is? It is just a state of mind that help you do wonders. In a growth mindset, people believe that their most basic abilities can…


Welcome to my room.

I know what’re thinking. How can someone live in this messy room? Am I right? Watching it today in this condition also made me question the same thing. The bed is going to be messed up again once I sleep on it but the side table is a lot messier than the bed. I usually like throw things on it and that can be seen pretty well. So after a lot of thinking now I’m going to tidy it up. But before that Let’s take a closer look of it.


‘Poetry is when an emotion has found its thought and the thought has found words.’ Robert Frost

When I was young, I had this habit of writing personal diary where I would write about my daily happenings or how I felt towards a certain experience, thing or a person. At first I wrote this to keep a track of things but with the passage of time, it became a gateway for me to escape into an imaginary world where it was only me. If I felt bad about a certain thing or I went through a bad experience or someone betrayed me or did something bad, I would write about it and would eventually feel good because…
