Laraib – A New Addition to Project Soft Image of Pakistan
There is no doubt that Laraib Atta is contributing hugely to project the soft image of Pakistan around the globe. She is doing marvels as a visual artist.
Mostly people from the West think about Pakistan a country that is constantly in disorder and chaos. And then they come across people like Laraib, who challenge every rigid concept that others might have about our country.
Laraib's work is fabulous and most important is that she is serving as an ambassador for a more lively, progressive and peaceful Pakistan. It also proves that Pakistanis can do exceptions even in unfavorable circumstances.

Laraib Atta wants other Pakistanis especially female to join this field and prove their talent. She expressed her thoughts in the following lines as:
"Back then when I started I was the only girl in the course and the youngest and of course the only Pakistani". "The goal is to get more women, young people into this, and more Pakistanis,".
