Proud Moment For All- Kanwal Ahmad becomes the first Pakistani Facebook Creator to be featured by YouTube CEO

Susan asked few questions from Kanwal Ahmed about her journey towards empowering the women of Pakistan and creating a safe and open space to express their feelings and get encouragement from the ladies worldwide. She started her journey when she saw the media news channels and dramas delivering content aimed to dehumanizing women. She rather wanted to bring out the good aspects of women in society. Using the power of storytelling and videography, she steered the society towards positive development of girls rather than making them suppressed due to the media influence. Her efforts majorly aim to bring out good in South Asian women whose generations have been paralyzed due to the wrong influences given through media on screens. She rather brought real inspirational stories of women who struggled and attained their goal.

She also raised sensitive issues through her interviews like domestic violence, child marriages, cyber harassment, emotional harassment, the taboo of remarrying, and child labor. Even her first interview was on domestic violence which gained huge attention of viewers and filled the comment sections of multiple platforms. Her idea is to show people that these incidents happen in real and they are ignored and deflected by society. Also, she wanted affected people to know that they are not alone. There are many people who are with them and will share their stories worldwide. According to her “No story should feel like it’s not important enough to be heard.”

The 32-year-old Kanwal, while talking about her channel, called it an attempt to bring change in society by using internet power. The stories and struggles of Women around her became the motivation to create a channel.

“My own experiences, growing up and internalizing the struggles of women around me inspired me to create spaces that can serve as the catalyst for change. In this day and age any of us with access to the internet has the power to use our platforms for a purpose and championing the stories of women became mine,”

In the new season 3, she has changed the format by inviting the guests to the food table making the format more attractive for the South Asian people who are fond of food.

Kanwal Ahmed also asked YouTube CEO Susan to back such inspirational stories so that it extends in every home where ladies could see and understand that this happens in real-world so they must care. Also, she requested to open the brand campaigns and programs that support the entrepreneur creators.

Looking back at her journey, Kanwal feels proud to fulfil the aim and wants to continue the journey of humanising prohibited topics and sharing thought-provoking stories. On her upcoming season, she decided to keep the format lighter as they want to recover from the emotionally and mentally disturbing period of Covid-19. “However, we are still talking about important things including the stereotypically negative associations of female relationships. This season is all about smashing that stereotype,” she concluded.
