Every year, Forbes honors young entrepreneurs and change-makers who happen to challenge the world in their own special way. This year 13 Pakistanis have made it to the roster, and it is one proud moment for the country.


First up on the list is Abdullah Siddiqui

The young singer, Abdullah Siddiqui, who shot to fame with his song “Resistance” in 2018, has been selected in the Forbes 30-under-30 list for Asia. Following his rise to popularity, he has been making waves with his electro-pop music in the entertainment industry.

Next up is Misha Japanwala

A sculpture artist and designer, Japanwala uses her art to highlight the social issues in Pakistan. Speaking up about social evils isn’t that special, but what makes her work unique is her choice of medium, which is a breastplate. This is what made her stand out enough to get featured in Forbes.

Finally, we have Shayan Mahmud

Mahmud has made it to the 30-under-30 list for the media, marketing, and advertising category. He is the managing director of Eikon7, that is an advertising and digital marketing agency. It has offices in Pakistan as well as Romania, Rwanda, and the U.A.E. Other than that, he is the Director and Chief Brand Officer for ProPakistani – one of the leading digital news publishers in Pakistan.
