A Child's Vision
Last year, Aliha Nasrullah co-founded a nonprofit called the Barkat Foundation, which provides free, basic healthcare to underprivileged men, women and children in Pakistan. This free-healthcare-for-all initiative has already helped more than 4,500 patients.
Nasrullah moved from Lahore, Pakistan, to New York in 2014 to pursue her bachelor’s degree in biology at Adelphi University. She is currently enrolled in the joint seven-year dental program with New York University, College of Dentistry. In addition to running her foundation, she writes memoirs about her younger siblings and practices portrait photography. She is also a social activist and is passionate about women’s empowerment and interfaith harmony.
