Esha Iqbal

Biography

An avid rock climber from the region of Azad Kashmir, Esha was the first girl in her family to get admission at one of the preeminent universities in Pakistan, the National University of Sciences & Technology (NUST) in Islamabad, where she completed her Bachelors in Business Administration. When not studying and not climbing, Esha works with Pakistan Relief, at their Resource Center, where she teaches basic computer skills to the children of underprivileged communities in Islamabad. She spent this past summer in the Guraize Valley, in the northern areas of the Neelum Valley, where she educated children and women. After completing her studies, she hopes to become a Fellow with Teach For Pakistan. Esha was also recently invited by the Pagosa Springs Rotary Club in Colorado, as the Ambassador of Peaceful Pakistan, to attend meetings and share Pakistan Relief’s humanitarian efforts with their sister community in the US. However, after learning about the Emerging Leaders program, Esha chose to forego that opportunity and participate in ELP because she felt that this opportunity would give her the skills to be a leader in her community and country.
