With great power comes greater responsibility, however, very few take this responsibility seriously. While many celebrities love and enjoy their star status, they forget that they’re seen as role models by millions. Fans take them as inspiration and Mehreen Syed is one influential artist who does not take that role lightly. She has been in the news for being socially aware and we absolutely love that about her.
Mehreen recently had the opportunity of meeting some extraordinary people at the 2018 Special Olympics National Games. Sharing her experience she said, “It was such a wonderful event. It was lovely to see such enthusiasm and confidence and determination shown by these kids. The highlight was seeing how much everyone enjoyed themselves. Each and every person has their strengths and should be celebrated for it!”
We truly agree that these incredibly talented people deserve every right to represent Pakistan on an international stage! Sending them more love and best wishes, Mehreen added, “We should have a better infrastructure in place and have vocational training centres. Companies and communities should step up and ensure that differently-abled members of society are not only supported but also trained.”
She’s just as beautiful on the inside as she is on the outside. Mehreen has also been working on the economic empowerment of young girls at iCare. Sharing her journey and source of motivation she said, “I’ve always wanted to give back to the society. I feel that each and every one of us should go out and help others, in any way possible. I passionately believe in and support women empowerment and iCare was founded with this purpose in mind. It gives me so much joy to see these young women able to support themselves and their families, to see the way they gain confidence and a sense of self-worth. It’s truly inspiring!”
Apart from social work, she shared her plans for 2018 saying, “I have signed on with L’Oréal Paris as their spokesperson and am currently working with them on various exciting projects. 2018 will be a fabulous year so let’s see what the future holds!”
Best of luck to this wonderful person! We wish you all the success for 2018!
