ABBOTTABAD: A 21-year-old Pakistani student, Umair Masood has received ‘Young Scientist Award 2021’ at an international conference featuring students from as many as 121 countries from around the globe.
“It took me three and a half years [to get this distinction]. I failed in researches multiple times. I was facing financial issues. It was not that easy,” Umair said, recalling his journey to the global recognition during ARY News’ morning programme Bakhabar Savera.
“I also got disheartened because of repeated failures and thought of giving up but then motivation came from within that I can do this.”
