As the curtains fall on 2017, it would not be too far off the mark to mention that it has been a complete eventful year for the valley as whole. From Innovative technological developments to creative developments, 2017 has been a year which will go down in the history of Kashmir for various milestones and achievements in diverse fields made by the people of the valley. The back to back developments in Kashmir made everyone proud and we just can’t stop praising them.
The word impossible itself says “I’m possible”. These talents have proven it right, and the special thing about them is, they followed their passion and success came following them. It’s always a pleasure to write about such inspiring people.
Steve Jobs had said, “The only way to do great work is to love what you do.” One special thing about these people are, they always followed their passion and loved it, and when you love what you do you get great results.
Here are the two Kashmiri Youth who proved that nothing is impossible and became an inspiration in the Valley:
1.) Iram Mehraj: – Iram Mehraj hailing from Peerbagh, Srinagar is a proud mother of two beautiful daughters. Iram was very learned and curios since her childhood. She did her Post graduation in Biotechnology from Bangalore and completed her B.ED from Kashmir University. She has also worked in Max Healthcare, in New Delhi and then in SKUAST in Kashmir. She is passionate about cooking and is also fond of learning new things through articles and blogs. After completing her education and working for few years in Delhi then in Kashmir, started her own venture called ‘Shreen Libas’, a first among the online stores for women. She started this online business through Facebook in 2014 by #ShreenLibas. After getting fruitful results through Facebook, she took to Instagram and Whatsapp to help her reach a wider group of people. Slowly ‘Shreen Libas’ became a famous name and an inspiration.
2.) Jaffar Rather: – Jaffar Rather is another example of inspirational from the valley.
