Setting aside all stereotypes and pushing away the throes of the patriarchal decree, Uzma Nawaz has set the standards of change way too high. The invincible, 24-year-old Uzma, a female car mechanic hailing from a small town Dunyapur, has set the strength of womanhood on the pillars of highest praise. Growing up in society that has little to offer her, Uzma grew up her femininity into a prowess that well differentiates her as an iron lady among masses of mere flesh.

Holding a qualified degree and then honing her skills by having worked into a field characterized by men presence, Uzma made her way out and sparked her skill making no room for subjected gender inclusion. She is defeating all taboos of defining jobs according to gender and making space for thoughts that bring her more strength and power.

The attitude that helped her grow out of her limits isn’t that of an ordinary being, but the liberty and emancipation of her thoughts makes her the torch bearer of change. Even though fate had it differently, and being born in a family that couldn’t afford her hefty dreams and aspirations, Uzma fought all odds and proved her abilities through her academic achievements all on her own.

Belonging to a profession very few indulge into, Uzma proudly up lives her passion and drives around the heavy wheels and spare parts symbolizing the women are as strong as men, only if they believe so. 

She lives as an inspiration for all those aiming to rise above the cultural barriers and societal limitations yet deep down believe in their own selves because this is who they have grown up with. It is zealots like her who challenge the status quo and create about a change that makes them have their own identity.

Knowing it isn’t easy to maneuver the mindset of a society far too invested in patriarchy, Uzma still believes in the power of her dream and is certain that she has the will and determination to face every obstacle. Being fortunate enough to have a family that supports her ambition and cushions her endeavors, Uzma knows her struggle has half paid off, the rest she can well do on her own.

This strokes a stride for all those pushed back by societal pressure and cultural imprisonment who have killed their dreams in an attempt to salvage the dignities and respect of a society that has failed to feed their dedication. Before we all sink back into our collective depression, lets for a single moment think of Uzma and dare to deliver those dreams that once shaped our childhood, put us to sleep, and followed us in sleep yet died too soon at the hands of a threatened reality that shattered us way too conveniently.
