How It Started – The Road to Dreams
Mahoor has always been inclined towards art since she was a kid. However, like most foreseeing parents, Mahoor’s parents also dreamt her in a white lab coat serving patients in a hospital. She did her high school in pre-medical on her own will. To make her parents pleased, she put in the maximum effort during the entrance test in order to get admission into a medical college. However, despite the hard work, Mahoor didn’t make it to the merit list because God has some other plans for her.
She took a gap year with an aim to appear again for the entrance test next year. But who knew, what life had in store for her.
During the gap year, Mahoor resorted to what she loved the most; art. She didn’t keep it to her own but started posting it on her Facebook page. All this time, her mother realized what Mahoor truly loved, and finally, she encouraged her to pursue art as her career.
