My name is Aijaz Ayyub and I am a resident of shah faisal colony - Karachi, Pakistan. I am working on a local petrol pump as a cashier. When i was in 7 class, I usually participate in our schools functions, acting in drama tableau and been an organizer as well. From the childhood, I really loved art and culture things. when i appeared in 10 class, my father has been passed away and unfortunately I had to leave my schools and joined garments factory for covering my family's bread and butter. Time flies, I grew up as a working boy, nor a student neither an artist. Today, (On 19 November 2017) I wasn't feeling well so i decided to take leave from my work and be at the home. In the noon, i heard some noises on our street, when i came out from my home, I saw a beautiful cultural setup where our national songs was played on the sound system, I felt really good to see such thing after an ages, I walked and reached to the people there (Team Thespianz), asked them about the happening and I got answered that they are promoting our culture through string puppetry and spreading peace and harmony through this activity, i was really very happy to heard this. I just asked to them what you need? I mean how may I help you? what you want from our area? I would love to help you people!! I brought my area's male female for being an audience for this activity, I served them (team thespianz) with water and tea. I really loved those puppets dance on our folk songs, it gave me goosebumps and took me to my past when i was organizing my school's functions. i just forgot my illness cuz i was really enjoying the happening. After ending of this performance, I realized that my passion for art is still alive inside me, I spoke to one of representative of Thespianz Theatre that I would like to be a volunteer with you people on my holidays. He gave me very positive response and agreed to call me for participating in their events. I came back to my home with smiling face :) "It's been an awesome day in my life after many years and I cannot forget this day in my whole life".
