In an interview with prominent Pakistani YouTuber Junaid Akram aka GanjiSwag, Shafiqa claims that "firms like Google and Facebook value open source work." Furthermore, she claimed that while "there is a massive amount of youth potential in Pakistan, people are unaware of the recruiting process because Google doesn’t have a physical presence there, such as an office."
Shafiqa also claimed that "organizations like Google and Facebook value the work done in open source. She also wanted to be independent, so she chose the sector and progressed through it until she was working for a reputable organization like Google."
Shafiqa further stated that "graduates from other nations already have a goal to get employed by Big Five Firms and begin preparing for competitions and internships as soon as they graduate. That is why Pakistan falls behind in getting hired by top companies like Google."
With the help of the exposure and experience Shafiqa is now gaining from working at Google’s Poland Office, she intends to make Pakistan proud in the future.
