I have decided to answer wholeheartedly due to being questioned about this so frequently.

Habib Raza is 1 of the 4 Pakistani students selected for the Asia Kakehashi program 2019. Habib used to believe that he could not compete with students from elite schools but wants to tell students like him that they should not underestimate themselves. In this video, Habib describes his motivation for going to Japan as an exchange student.

What is Asia Kakehashi?

Asia Kakehashi is a scholarship for Asian high schoolers who are interested in building their global competence. It is supported by AFS Intercultural Programs, a non-profit organization that aims to empower people of all backgrounds with essential intercultural knowledge, skills, and understanding. Knowledge Platform has been supporting AFS in the process of selecting Pakistani students for the Kakehashi program since 2018.
