Hailing from Pakistan, Momal is a freelance writer, activist and an aspiring social entrepreneur. Her work in development and media communications, with focus on youth and gender equality, has been recognized by global awards, including a first place award from the United Nations for her work with women. Having seen the effects of violence on a first-hand basis and the hate being generated amongst the youth, Momal founded The Voice of Youth, an also award-winning youth network spread across 151 countries of the world. She founded The Freedom Traveller (TFT) to connect and empower female travellers, especially from the countries where freedom of movement for women is restricted, with a platform where women of all nationalities and beliefs can actively network, share knowledge and resources, and map their experiences of travel. Momal enjoys learning new things and meeting new people. She spends most of her free time travelling, reading and documenting her life through photographs or words.
At TEDxMünster she will share her personal story of being exposed to different cultures and how it led her to work on the cause of women’s right to mobility. Her message: Let’s give every woman the chance to experience what it means to be free. – (Talk in English)
