Hello Dear Anum,

How are you doing? Congrats on your presentation, but I'm sorry you didn't win the actual prize... this time, anyway:-) Junk Away sounds like they have a great mission, too! Thanks for sharing.

Hope you're doing well, and having a great week!

I am good. Thank you for the wish. Unfortunately, the team didn't get the chance to get into the finals but they were in the regionals. I was in the advisory role for one of the business institute's hult prize chapter here in Pakistan. I was the guest of honor for this event. Yes, Junk Away is an amazing idea. We have brilliant Startups here in Pakistan. I will share the stories of few in my upcoming stories. Good Day! Peace!
