Sachan (BSc Accounting & Finance 2021) represented Pakistan at the Global Peace Summit 2022. The summit gathers young people from more than 35 countries in Baku to speak about global problems, post-war peace opportunities, personal peace initiatives, and took part in panel discussions. He was the only fully funded delegate from Pakistan. For Sachan, imagining a life beyond the boundaries of his hometown Kunri, in interior Sindh, was never possible. “I was always in self-doubt because I was mocked at school for my darker complexion and for being underweight. My father for the sake of us siblings moved to metropolitan cities for better academic and social opportunities. Standing up for myself and minorities in Pakistan was something that I learned very late in life. As a child, I avoided engaging in conversations related to diversity and inclusivity.”
