Pakistani women’s athletes are now making the country proud. However, Gulmit’s Pakistani women’s football team has shown it’s an epitome of confidence, self-belief and determination. In Pakistan, every woman can take them as an inspiration to pursue their dreams.
These young, vibrant, and ambitious individuals show to the world that women too, regardless of all of the challenges that may come their way, can do whatever they want to do once they set their minds into it.
