Pakistan has finally established a pageant for women over 29 years of age and created an addition to the already established Miss Pakistan World pageant that was created in 2003. After 17 years, the first Ms. Pakistan World to be crowned is Jennefer Rahman from Abbottabad, Pakistan. A Life Coach and meditation teacher, Jennefer Rahman has a degree in education and has been a school teacher. She is still pursuing her Master’s in Education. She speaks German, Pashto, Urdu and Punjabi as well.
When asked why she wanted to be a part of the Ms. Pakistan World competition, she stated, “I wanted to be on a platform where I can support others and have an influence when it comes to community service. I wanted to step out of my comfort zone and try something I secretly wanted. Probably also because my mother always said she sees me winning a crown one day. She meant a beauty pageant combined with a selfless service to others. Besides all this, nothing is impossible in life I thought, if you have the vision, dedication. Age, color, gender cannot bound you. You can achieve anything with hard work, it takes time discipline and time to get where you want.”
Sonia Ahmed, President of Ms. Pakistan World, said that this is a hue accomplishment, and that she is looking for to the opportunities that will come for the newly created pageant for single women over the age of 29 years. She further added, “After the Miss Pakistan World, Mrs. Pakistan World and Mr. Pakistan World, there was still a gap left for women who were career women and yet wanted to represent Pakistan internationally. These women like myself, never married, but focused more on their careers and by the time their careers were settled they were between the ages of 29 and 45 years old. In order to bring a strong representation for them, the Ms. Pakistan World competition was created!”
When asked about the cause that she is wanting to support, Jennefer said, “The platform I see myself on is around mental healthcare issues. I thought about it for a long time. What really moves me is the rise of mental health issues around us. I believe you should have goals, whether they are small or big and therefore one of my big goals is to setup an institution for anyone dealing with mental health issues, anxieties, depression and a general restlessness in life. Much needed in the time we are living in. The pandemic has changed life in many ways. It is difficult to adjust to this new reality for certain people. Which is fine. Which is why I am very much engaged in helping my clients find that inner peace and balance again.”
Ms. Pakistan World 2020, Jennefer Rahman will be focused on representing Pakistan is the upcoming Ms. Category competitions in the year 2021, till the pandemic settles down!
