Going down the memory lane, “A Reflection of Amal Fellowship”

I had to think about my whole Amal Experience and Visualize it. I have to think of something, place or person which reminds me of my first two weeks at Amal Academy.
The Problem is, everything, place and person is reminding me of Amal. My friends and family are complaining that in the past couple of weeks I have nothing else to talk about other than Amal and Amal Fellowship.
I keep talking about my experience, I keep talking about the wonderful and amazing people I have met at Amal. Seems like Amal is revolving around every part of my life.

I had a hiking trip a few days ago in Ayubia National Park with my friend and classmate “Hamza Amjad”. And at the end of day he was saying, “Please talk about anything other than Amal, (yeah i did not stop talking about it during the whole trip).

Hamza Amjad is a very good friend and class fellow who told me about the Amal Fellowship. I meet Hamza a couple of times every week and whenever I see him or talk to him, I am thankful to him that because of him, I got this wonderful experience of Amal Fellowship.

When I think about my first two weeks at Amal, I get mixed feelings. I have both memories and feelings. I remember that I was quite excited about the fellowship and the whole journey. When I was done with first two sessions, I was too thoughtful and energetic about the remaining sessions as even the first sessions exceeded my expectations.

At the start I was a little nervous and tooexcited about meeting new people in Fellowship. Seldom did Iknow that these people would become a family. And along with a journey of learning and thoughtful discussions, I will also have the fun of my life.

These first two weeks at Amal allowed me to take a Journey of knowing my self. It enabled me to identify my strengths and weaknesses. It also showed me how to set, pursue and achieve goals. Before that I did not know how to identify the “WHY” of a goal inorder to refine it.

Most important of all, those first two weeks taught me how to choose a Life and Career path for me. And the remaining path taught me how to pursue that path.

In the second week of Amal, I started learning Python Programming Language for life long learning. I am glad that I am done with the Beginner, Intermediate and Advance courses of Python. I have started learning Artificial Intelligence and Machine learning with Python.

Amal fellowship helped me discover myself. I came to knoww about how good I am at Leadership without authority. I realized that being an MVTP does not need to be the leader. And most amazing of all things is the fact that in this fellowship, I have these amazing friends and my whole batch is like a family.

Now when we are at the top, Everything is more clear.
