Syed Faizan Hussain

Syed Faizan Hussain, Pakistani Student to receive Queen’s Young Leaders Award

There are always two sides of a coin and the first side rarely represents the complete and accurate picture. In case of Pakistan the image is mostly dark and grey. With plenty of problems in the country, negative aspects are usually overemphasized over the positive ones. But the volatile transition of this country needs us to play our role to change the image of our homeland.

There are few people who are working diligently to promote a Pro-Pakistan image to the entire world. One such individual is Syed Faizan Hussain who is a social entrepreneur and is creating solutions for arising health issues in his community with the help of technology. He worked as a voluntary teacher at Saylani Welfare Trust and successfully trained more than 200 students with humble backgrounds. He taught them computer programming skills and empowered them to make a living on their own. Many startups were developed by Hussain such as Edu-Aid. This is an app that helps translate sign language into spoken language to help understand people who cannot speak. Another app known as OneHealth is a disease surveillance and tracking system that alerts health institutions about the possible breakouts.

Because of his efforts he has been awarded the Queen’s Young Leaders Awards in 2017. This is an award that is given to people between ages of 18-29 from Commonwealth of Nations after recognizing their efforts for their community.

The future plans of Hussain include development of a tech consultant and outsourcing company named Venture Dart, for entrepreneurs and small businesses. Such individual efforts from the young leaders can help in bringing up the social change that we all wish to manifest in Pakistan.

That is all you ever need to know about me but let me warn you, freelancing for me is a journey, certainly not a destination :)
