Yesterday, Pepsico organized a very inspirational event called “With Purpose”. Four people from different walks of life spoke about their journey that had a purpose – empowering others.

The founder of Soul Sister needs no introduction. Her facebook group has over 100,000 women from across the world. Kanwal spoke about her journey. Her contributions were noticed by Facebook when they chose her to be part of Facebook Community Leadership program.
Umair’s speech was the most interesting one. He actually made us rethink about our life goals. He insisted the audience to focus more on the journey than the destination, which is very true.

We must choose our path and not be scared of societal norms.
