Hammad is of the view that Pakistan is a country full of unique, talented people.
However, unfortunately, these people are not provided with the environment that is essential for them to develop and prosper.
“I believe that bringing a revolution is not possible unless the latest standards of education are met,” remarks Hammad. “I believe that if our entire system is restructured in which teaching computer skills is mandatory, Pakistan will soon become a world leader in providing the best education to the youth who, I think, is the future of this country.”
Hammad draws inspiration from Allama Iqbal. Truly, he is beyond his years.
One of his most famous speeches is about how failure is an important step to success.
When he’s not engrossed in books or giving motivational speeches, you’ll find this little guy pursuing yet another one of his passions: photography.
Truly, Hammad Safi is nothing short of a national treasure. We can only put our hopes in young individuals like him who are forward thinkers. We wish Hammad all the best for his future. Let’s hope he soars and becomes the hero Pakistani needs in his own way.
