Meet Manmeet Kaur - Pakistan’s first Sikh female news reporter
Manmeet Kaur, who is a resident of Peshawar city, joined Hum News on Saturday. She completed her masters in social sciences from Peshawar University. She has four siblings.
She will be seen reporting on the issues of human rights, minorities, local communities and non-governmental organizations.
Talking to reporters in Lahore, the 24-year-old said although the media is not her field, she accepted the job to prove herself.
"In our country (Pakistan), most of the Sikh girls prefer to sit at homes after completing their formal education," Kaur said while urging her community to step into the practical field.
"I want to serve my country as a journalist and want to show the world that we [Sikh women] are also talented."
