International Interns under IAESTE Chapter for the year 2013-2014
I would consider myself very lucky and I am very happy that I got a chance to visit Pakistan and stay here for a couple of months. My stay was different from others as I get to visit Pakistan to extend of South to North and have been to the sea side at Karachi and mountain ranges in Islamabad during just one visit.
I came to Karachi and started working at Pakistan Navy Engineering College. I would like to say that Karachi is a wonderful city with all kinds of people living in it. However Karachi has its good and bad days. It is somewhat considered unsafe for un-administered hovering around. I say that mostly because, it was really hard, nearly impossible to find any food which was not spicy. People here like to eat a lot of spicy food.
But I enjoyed working there, although I had to stay inside for most of the times as I was the only IEASTE student in Karachi and there wasn’t much of trips and city tours planned. But again, this only gave me a chance to focus towards my work more and it helped me a lot in my educational side.
For the later part of my internship, I went to Islamabad in National University of Sciences and Technology, H-12 Campus. My stay in Islamabad was extremely pleasant and fun-filled as IAESTE Islamabad team had planned amazing trips across the Punjab Province (Including Lahore) and some trips in the Northern Areas of Pakistan.
Islamabad is a very beautiful and safe place. The hostel accommodation provided by the administration was extremely good as well and the university is also very vast and beautiful. I enjoyed all my time in Islamabad and felt like home in there.
I am very proud to know some beautiful people in Pakistan and if anyone would take my advice, I would suggest that you must go to Islamabad. It is extremely safe even for the foreigners.
At the end, I would like to thank everyone who made my stay unforgettable in Pakistan and for your unlimited help and support at every moment.
