Another win for young achiever

SHE’S met former US president Bill Clinton and rubbed shoulders with Prince Harry and Meghan at international youth forums and now Fibha Frameen has been named on the 2024 Young Women to Watch in International Affairs list as part of International Women’s Day celebrations.

The youngest person on the Greater Cumberland Chamber of Commerce, Fibha has been committed to social justice from when she experienced struggles arriving as a 10-year-old from Pakistan in 2009.
She has accomplished a lot for a 25-year-old, completing a Masters degree in International Law, Human Rights and Policy, and was named Rotary Inspirational Woman of the Year in 2021.
She was selected to attend a Global Peace Summit in Dubai in February in 2022 ahead of being chosen among 150 young leaders from 73 countries, to take part in the Nasser Fellowship for International Leadership forum in Egypt.
Thrilled with her latest accolade, Fibha says her journey has been about breaking barriers and creating pathways for those who come after her, ensuring that no one feels alone or overlooked.
“When you don’t see many people like you inside a room, that’s when you know there is room for you to add value, for you to bring a new perspective or challenge the old and make a difference,” she said.
“Together we have the power to tackle even the greatest global challenges. Through collective action, one step at a time, we can forge meaningful change and build a brighter future for all.”
