I want to share with you all that, in my school we are provided with several opportunities to show our talents and was given a unique chance to express my artistic talent.

Hey! My name is M. Danyial. I am a student of Aga Khan School, Garden, studying in 7th standard. I want to share with you all that, in my school we are provided with several opportunities to show our talents and was given a unique chance to express my artistic talent.

I still remember that it was summer vacations, 2007, when one of my art teachers ‘Miss Shazia’ was kind to invite me to the Beach Luxury Hotel for an IEARN Project in which we had to work on an animated video that was to give a message to the humanity that we have to help others at every stage of life and to make them aware that people must stand with one another through thick and thin specially so if the nation faces a natural disaster or a real state of emergency. The Video was to give rise that as a nation we hold one another’s hand for every problem and at every doorstep.

I felt very glad to participate and somehow I was nervous as well, at the meeting of I EARN. I remember that I was in a state of fluster and was shivering, but my teacher supported me and also encouraged me that motivated me to do my best in the project. I spent four days there and had great fun. It was a thrilling experience to meet students from other schools. This was a chance for us to work as a team for making our project successful and praiseworthy. As a team we worked hard with true commitment.

The members of I EARN guided us and helped us in resolving the confusions. Initially it was very difficult to handle the project but with the passage of time together we were able to understand what was required from us and did our best. During this project we were able to know not only our own strengths but we were also able to identify each other potentials and found ways of utilizing the team’s talents in making the project worth while.

We were proud and happy at our achievement and when every one present at the event acclaimed our effort. The school management appreciated the work which made us feel a special part of Aga Khan School, Garden.

"Thank you my dear school for providing us this valuable learning experience."
