Farhan Baig

My name is Farhan Baig, and I am the President of the Gilgit-Baltistan's Goodwill Movement, a charity organization dedicated to serving people with disabilities in the picturesque region of Gilgit-Baltistan. Despite being visually impaired, I have embraced my passion for radio and work as a Radio DJ, using my voice to entertain, inform, and inspire others. Education has always been a crucial aspect of my life, and I am proud to have completed my Masters in Political Science from the prestigious Karakoram University in Gilgit. This academic achievement has provided me with a solid understanding of political systems, governance, and policies, empowering me to make a positive impact on my community. As the President of the Gilgit-Baltistan's Goodwill Movement, my primary goal is to uplift the lives of individuals with disabilities in the region. Through our charity initiatives, we strive to promote inclusivity, equal opportunities, and empowerment for those who face physical or mental challenges. By organizing events, workshops, and awareness campaigns, we aim to create a more inclusive society where everyone can thrive and contribute to their fullest potential. Personally, my journey as a visually impaired individual has allowed me to develop resilience, determination, and a unique perspective on life. I firmly believe that disabilities should never be seen as limitations but rather as opportunities for growth, innovation, and advocacy. By sharing my story and experiences, I aspire to inspire others to embrace their own capabilities and overcome any obstacles they may encounter. In addition to my work with the charity organization and my role as a Radio DJ, I actively engage in community activities. I participate in public speaking events, where I address important issues related to disability rights, social equality, and education. Through these platforms, I strive to raise awareness, challenge stereotypes, and foster a more inclusive society. My ultimate vision is to create a world where individuals with disabilities are fully integrated into society, where their rights are respected, and where their voices are heard. By combining my academic knowledge, my passion for radio, and my dedication to advocacy, I aim to make a lasting impact and improve the lives of people with disabilities in Gilgit-Baltistan. I am grateful for the opportunities and support that have shaped my journey thus far, and I remain committed to my mission of promoting goodwill, equality, and empowerment for all.
