Be The Voice! My Voice Unheard is an online initiative which not only focuses on changing negative Pakistani perceptions but also promotes the psychological benefits of self-expression. The idea rests upon a fundamental south Asian, culturally acceptable behavior of in-expressiveness which is considered akin to psychological strength. On the contrary, research in psychology lays emphasis on expressing one’s self, fundamental to a healthy mind. Hence, we promote the voices of the many. Be it in the form of writing, audio, visual, illustrations or videos. We encourage all sorts of self-expression. However, all posts are made public upon the review of the core team.

 Guidelines and ideas for your voices  under each category are mentioned below.
