I won an award!


Pic by Sana Saleem

I’m honoured and humbled to report that I’ve won in the Best Celebrity Blogger category of the Pakistan Blog Awards. The Unconference organized by CIO Pakistan and Google Pakistan for the first time ever in Pakistan was a fantastic venture and a glitzy ceremony! Their aim was to ‘discuss, recognize and platformize one of the the fastest growing online mediums in Pakistan, the blogging community.’ And I for one think they pulled it off fabulously!

Thanks so much to Rabia Garib and her team, all the fellow bloggers who convinced and helped me to start a blog (Ammar Yasir of Teabreak, Jehan Ara of Pasha, Sana Saleem of Mystified Justice, who actually arrived at my home to set it up along with Poppy Agha), and DiscoMaulvi/Aly B who nominated me. I’d be remiss if I didn’t mention Faisal Kapadia and Awab Alvi for encouraging me by featuring me repeatedly on The Laidback Show.

A big thank you to everyone who voted for me! 😀
