PAKISTAN 🇵🇰: In 2014 I worked for 4 months in Lahore. I was doing a large education strategy project and though I was busy with work, I also got a lot of time to learn about the country and its cultures. From playing cricket after work, my long talks with my driver while sitting in traffic, on my nightly runs through the park across from my hotel, or in the many conversations with clients and colleagues- I began to see the richness and complexity of this great country. Most people have very negative views of Pakistan- its problematic security situation, its abuses against women and minorities, and its rampant corruption. And though I learned first hand about many of these things, I also went deeper to understand the contexts and conditioning that create Pakistan’s reality and to see many examples of the progress that was (and continues to be) made. They call Pakistan a hard country, and this is very true- but along with that comes many incredible things. If we allow the bad to blind us from the good, then we are absolutely missing out. In my new video I talk more about this and my views on breaking the stereotypes in this country.
