Finalists – 25 Under 25 Award

The Little Art is celebrating 25 stories of resilience to encourage and inspire millions and is ecstatic to announce the 25 young women for 25 Under 25 Award! These 25 young women represent the geographic and cultural diversity of Pakistan and bring assorted experiences and determination to contribute towards positive social, environmental, and cultural impact in Pakistan.

Young women are continually leaving indelible marks over the framework of history and it comes at no surprise that wings continue to spread every day. In Pakistan, we are witnessing the change as it happens. From the seashores of Karachi, to the chilly mountains of Skardu, our 25 exceptional young women are breaking stereotypes while achieving dreams many have not yet dared to have.

You might find yourself in awe of the resilience and strength these young women possess, or you might marvel at what all they can manage to do in a day. They’re kicking footballs, and writing poetry. They are fighting archaic dogmas and stigmas to make sure the future isn’t like the present. They are focused to give more, do more.

25 Under 25 Award is a vision to recognize those young women, carrying extraordinary stories of determination and passion. We are excited to welcome Cohort 1 to The Little Art community, to inspire other young women and catalyze a positive change in society.

They are inspirational. They are unapologetic.
They are the 25 under 25.
