Mr Yousaf is not only father to the mountain princess but is also his guide and climbing partener. He is such a supportive father that I am really proud to see that there are some people like him who believes that women can also do amazing things if the are given the chance

he said that through selena he wants to spread the love for Pakistan all around the world and he wants the world to see the real side of Pakistan . he really wants the kids of todays generation to get involve in positive activities and also want the women  to get involve in the field of mountaineering .



For writing this blog I talked for about 1 hour with is little amazing human and trust me I seriously felt I was talking to some one of my age 😛 . I know about mountains and climbers of Pakistan from many time but I never ever say someone so energetic and amazing like her ( may god save her from evil eyes ) . She really is made for all of these mountains , like I mean climbing mountains of +6000m isn’t easy for a 9 years old but she did it and proved that she can do it

I really do have higher expectations from her in the future and I am really proud of her



I would love to thank the one who created me Allah ALMIGHTY my bestie for life ❤ because without his blessings I am nothing and I cant tank him enough ❤
