"I have entered Asian Face of Pakistan because I believe I can represent my true heritage and culture within this role". 

My name is Sara from North West Leicestershire.  I am a Chartered Engineer with a Bachelors Engineering Degree in Digital Communications.  My work, as an Electronics/Spectrum Engineer, entails solving complex engineering problems using a range of tools and techniques.  I work with Fourier Analysis on a daily basis and use many other advanced Mathematical Tools in my daily work.


I am an ambassador for Engineering and work to encourage young women to consider engineering as a profession.  I have appeared on BBC Breakfast TV, with Professor Sir John Beddington, to launch the £1 million Queen Elizabeth II Prize for Engineering.  I won the Young Women Engineer of the year Institute of Engineering and Technology award out of a field of hundreds of applicants.


I enjoy reading both fiction and technical papers covering mathematical and engineering subjects.  I may come across as a bit of a geek and totally different to the usual entrant to pageants however I’m as much of a girly girl as anyone.  I love make up, manicures and dressing up.


I enjoy keeping fit and run every morning.  I regularly ride horses and enjoy clay pigeon shooting.


I believe that we should help the people, especially children, in disadvantaged countries and I regularly either contribute or arrange collections for this worthy cause. 


I believe I am the ideal candidate to be Miss Pakistan as I bring my passion, deep beliefs and my professional outlook to the role.  I wish to break the stereotype, of cooking and cleaning, of a girl with a Pakistani heritage and to show the world how a Pakistani girl can succeed.  If I am crowned Miss Pakistan I will use my position to increase the amount of support that we can give to the people in need in Pakistan.  I will also raise awareness of the issue of poverty and the disadvantaged within a large proportion of the people of Pakistan.
