Emotional Quotient (EQ) is one of the important parts of our life but many individuals fail to develop balanced EQ and this results in an emotional imbalance that causes severe problems for an individual. And that’s why I think it is important to connect and do things just for your emotional uplift sometimes because you have that potential but still you do not even try to get there. Sometimes all you need is emotional uplift from a close one or it could be from anyone. Work is also an important part but sometimes you can’t handle your emotions and it…


Before joining the Amal Academy, I was a fallen tree in a dark forest, who lost all the hopes and felt sad too.

A fallen tree

At the start of this journey, I was a bit confused that what was all about because I didn’t really know about this course, I haven’t learned it before.


Self-reflection is where you intentionally take time to ask yourself questions about your life, experiences, and goals. It is one of the important parts of our life as it allows us to practice thinking about our experiences and then analyze what was wrong in them and how I could improve myself. It leads us to the growth mindset. Practicing self-reflection and exercising a growth mindset are qualities leaders often exhibit as they engage in a continuous journey of self-development.

An instance that has had the most profound effect on me. The instance or incident that has made the greatest impact…


The Pomodoro Technique is a time management method developed by Francesco Cirillo in the late 1980s. The technique uses a timer to break down work into intervals, traditionally 25 minutes in length, separated by short breaks.

I want to build my CV and I know that it took time maybe 2 days or more. So, I decided to use this Pomodoro technique because I wanted to complete this as soon as possible.

This technique has several steps. First step is to set a timer of 25 minutes. Therefore, I set an alarm of 25 minutes and then start writing. The…


To find the problem, all you have to do is to observe your surrounding. I want my mega project as simple as possible so that I can initiate it and also I want it to be small because I can’t take a risk with something big. The city I live in is ‘Karachi’ and it has several problems in it. The problem can be about social welfare, or an entrepreneurial idea (remember, every business starts with a problem or gap that it tries to address).

Therefore, I decided to first divide my mega project ideas into individual and team work.

A GIFT OVERDUE

THANK YOU CARD

Friends are the biggest part of our life, like I can’t imagine myself without friends. Some have good friends while others have badly as well. As every individual knows that they have a different past as compared to others because everyone is living its own life and that’s what make you unique.

The recent task of Amal academy gives me motivation to write a thank you letter for my friend. And I never said a really thank you to her because I never realized that she was too important in my life until today. …


FIXING STUFF AROUND YOURSELF

As a human, every individual is responsible to solve every other problem and try to fix things around. Starting with the mind, one who can solve its own mind conflicts would be having inner peace for himself/herself.

Anything can be fixed/improved/cleaned/organized/mended/attended. A home always need renovation while a lot of things can be fixed in that process.

Here I am trying to fix stuff around myself, the first thing that hit me is beds of my younger sisters, they are always messy because they keep everything on the bed. …


#JUST START EXPERIENCE

I want to run an organization for the students of Karachi by September 2021 that helps people to get a job by providing a platform where students and industries can connect through learning presenting skill and also building a team from Amal Academy.

I have this goal because even after 2 years of my graduation I didn’t get a job so I thought instead of finding a job, I should build a bridge between students and industries, so they don’t have to suffer in order to find a job. …
