The topic of Saro’s M Phil’s research paper was ‘How to start a transgender business in Pakistan, business development objectives and challenges’.
She said, “I want the transgender community in Pakistan to come forward by education, do their jobs or business and play a role in Pakistan’s economy.
Saro is currently serving as a communications officer for a community organization working on the health of people in her community.
She believes that the place she is in today includes the encouragement of her family.
