Invited at a Dawn News Show "Do Raaye"

2017

Loved to be invited at DawnNews on their show Do Raaye on DawnNews. Talked about Social Champ, Startup ecosystem and the role of incubators such as The Nest I/O! I can still speak good Urdu! ^_^ Although this was my first time looking into the lens of the camera, they offered me a Lead Acting role in an upcoming Drama! Only if Zohaib and Shakir allow me to act, I'll confirm! Just kidding! :P You can watch the full show from: http://bit.ly/2oTPKuH Special appearance by: Guy Kawasaki, Peg Fitzpatrick, Jehan Ara and Lyndsay Phillips into the news slides! ^_^ Peace!

With Guy Kawasaki - in his super car

2017

A dream day spent with Kawasaki family! Guy thinks to visit Pakistan, with Nate, his youngest son! ^_^ Thank you for the delicious dinner Guy Kawasaki with your family and then dropping me off to station in powerful Mercedes-AMG GTS, what a ride! We played Ping pong, saw Guy play Hockey ( I couldn't play xD), and Nate gave me a tour of his home, showed me 13 eggs from the little farm, and Nohemi played piano too! What a day! Guy doesn't invite anyone to his place, I'm honored! Peace!
