Balochistan is still a developing province, which means it is still likely that people there are not tech-savvy enough to become full-time YouTubers. Becoming a YouTuber means sorting out what content you want to work on, shooting the content, editing, and uploading whilst understanding the platform’s rules and regulations.
Giving a Voice to the Unheard
A 20-year girl, Anita Jalil, has beaten all odds and taken over this taunting profession. She is the first female vlogger in Balochistan who uses her platform to highlight societal and everyday issues of women.
For a young girl her age, it is difficult to break stereotypes in an area where women usually are found behind curtains in their homes, but that hasn’t stopped Anita. Her journey wasn’t easy. She said: “It took me a very long time to convince my parents. I also do theatre programs here. I have tried to inspire other women to come in this field.”
Adding to which she said, “Vlogging was a very old interest of mine. When a few years back I lived outside of Pakistan, I developed this interest of vlogging.”
