According to the sources, after finishing the 23rd Short Service Commission, Gilgit-born Fatima Changezi was recently recruited as a Sub-Lieutenant officer in the Pakistan Navy.
These services that Changezi passed comprise subsidiaries like the Logistics, Medical, Pharmacy, Information Technology, Law, Public Relations, Education, etc.
As per the sources, Fatima Changezi has many other honors under her belt, involving getting a Gold Medal in sports for her excellent performance all over the education and training period.
Fatima said while speaking to the media, “In the small town of Gilgit Baltistan, I had enormous dreams & ambition, to make big in psychology. When I was only 13, hiding in my closet to read novels, I soon realized that my interests differed from most of the girls & a long journey of struggle was ahead of me”.
“However, I knew that amid all this chaos I had one person who had my back to push me toward my goals, my Baba (Rehmat Ali Changezi). I learned into 1 of the best institutes for my degree in psychology & was the first-generation female graduate in my family.”
Sadly, Fatima’s father passed away a month earlier after she got into the Navy academy, she stated “I know he would be proud of me”.
She further added that “Where my sisters were getting married with no college degree, I had to defeat all odds to proceed with my education. The stones of societal expectations were hurled at me for not contemplating marriage as my sole object of existence.”
