Fatima Amir, the 15-year old girl who made Pakistan proud in Special Olympics World Winter Games 2017 by winning a Gold and two Silver medals in Snowshoeing, is determined that she is not different from others and she can do anything.

“I am not a special kid, I can do anything,” says a proud and determined Fatima Amir.

After winning three medals in the global event, the girl from Karachi is determined to shine brighter in the future for Pakistan and bring more glories to to the country.

“I would love to compete for Pakistan again and win for my motherland once again,” said the young girl.

However, Fatima is not happy with government’s support for the special kids and she gets disheartened by that.

“It is disheartening when government does not support special kids, it is very disheartening,” she stated.

Proud mother of Fatima Amir urges that special kids should get complete support, they deserve everything that a normal child deserves.

The global sporting event featured 3,000 athletes from 110 countries. Pakistan’s contingent bagged 16 medals in the campaign that include three Gold, seven Silver and six Bronze medals.
