Kainat Junaid Becomes First Female Fighter Pilot From KP
In a male dominated society like Pakistan, it is difficult for girls to showcase their talent. Especially, when we talk about a bit more conservative part of our country, Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa, where girls have less opportunities compared to boys.
But, Kainat Junaid did not let social barriers come in her way of achieving her dream of becoming a fighter pilot. According to a report, Kainat Junaid has become the very first girl from KPK to be serving as frontline fighter pilot at the Pakistan Air force (PAF). The iron-lady of Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa is also the first ever Pakistani female fighter pilot.
Kainat Junaid has the blood of a soldier running through her veins, her father also serves at the Pakistan Air force. Her father —Junaid Ahmed—currently serves as a squadron leader at PAF Peshawar.
Talking about his daughter’s historic milestone, the proud father stated that Kainat Junaid is inspired by Pakistan’s first female pilot (Late) Marium Mukhtar and is fully committed to serve her homeland.
“She [Kainat] is fully committed to serve the country,” Junaid Ahmed stated.
Kainat Junaid has a strong educational background. She did her schooling from PAF College Badaber and later she moved to Peshawar for her F.SC. She did her F.SC from Jinnah College Peshawar. Jinnah College Peshawar is one of the top colleges of Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa.
