I had represented my country to share its culture with different people and it would be an interesting and fascinating job for me. I found myself able to share all the above mentioned information because I have profound knowledge and exposure to Pakistan’s culture and ways of living of its people. The most efficient way to share culture of Pakistan with people, who may not know it, is to let them experience it by celebrating fairs and festivals, by presenting them national dresses or by entertaining them with Pakistani music.
