Belonging to a conservative society, Anita Jalil has fought all odds to pursue the interest she has felt very strongly for, vlogging.
At a young age of 20, Anita became the first vlogger of Balochistan using her vlogs as a platform to highlight societal and everyday issues of women in Baluchistan giving a voice to the unheard.
Anita said her journey was not that easy, “It took me a very long time to convince my parents. I also do theatre programs here. I have tried to inspire other women to come in this field.” Adding to which she said, “Vlogging was a very old interest of mine. When a few years back I lived outside of Pakistan I developed this interest of vlogging.”
As of today, Anita has more than 20,000 followers on her YouTube page
Anita is a source of motivation for girls in Balochistan and she recognises that fact. There are many girls, she says, who are motivated by my videos and they believe they are gaining confidence to pursue their dreams as well. “These girls only need a ‘push’, and once they have that, there is nothing that can stop them!”
