Yes, you will surely be amazed by reading the title because we do not think of women in freelancing and rated among the top seller. Freelancing is growing in Pakistan. Many companies and organizations are seeking the services of freelancers because they prove to be more reliable, convenient as well as cheap as compared to the in-house jobs.
For the women, who cannot perform and follow the schedule of 9 to 5 job can quickly provide their services any time they want. Same is the case with Anum Zulfiqar who got her education from Karachi and then moved to Islamabad for the higher studies. She has done Bachelors in Software Engineering from Fatima Jinnah Women University 2012.
She wanted to do something exceptional for her community and realized that she is not a 9 to 5 job person. While other students were seeking for new opportunities, she developed her interest in freelancing.

Anum added that Aneela Syed was the only best friend she had in life. Aneela passed away in a brutal car accident with her entire family. And she used to remark that “Anum! You will see one day, I will be famous in entire world.” Aneela loss shook me.
