Nisha Rao has become the first transgender lawyer of Pakistan. She tells her struggle to fulfill her goals which were riddled with discrimination, humiliation, and insensitivity.
Nisha Rao hails from Lahore, but after matriculation, she fled to Karachi to escape from her family’s torture and constant physical abuse. After moving, she spent ten years begging and studying law with the same money. She attained her Law degree from Karachi’s Sindh Muslim Law College in 2018.
Nisha wishes to serve the transgender community through her non-government organization. She is mulling to set up a helpline where transgender can guide other community members. She wants to build a shelter home for elderly people in her community so that they can be treated well and spend the rest of their lives in comfort.
