There I was involved in Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) reports and also did a detailed study on solid waste management in Pakistan. Furthermore, I had worked in Environmental Protection Agency- Gilgit Baltistan for almost six weeks. During my internship, I learned about the reviewing of EIA reports. I had also participated in the Eco-Internship Program organized by WWF-Pakistan for four months. It was a very productive internship. During my eco-internship program, I worked with a group of people on a project which was about water conservation. The main purpose of the project was to educate and aware people regarding the importance and safe usage of water. Therefore, we went to the public schools in Islamabad and there our main target were the primary level students. We conducted various presentations on the importance and safe usage of water. My hobbies are sports, cooking, reading books, traveling, hiking and gardening.
