The whole nation is congratulating Saro on her impressive feat. Her fighting spirit has been comended on more than one occasion, referring to her tireless campaign for trans rights in Pakistan.

According to the activist, society’s stigmatism and attitude towards her community strengthened her resolve and made her realize that educating oneself is a way to gain respect and recognition. This is the reason why she chose to pursue her higher studies and fight for the trans community’s rights.

It may be recalled that the topic of Saro's MPhil research paper was 'How to start a business for transgender people in Pakistan, objectives and challenges of business development'.

The activist has consistently spoken up about the transgender community, using both her voice and platform to bring light to many issues the trans members in society are exposed to.

Now Saro will be pursuing her studies to get a PhD from the University of Westminster, thanks to her dedication to the cause and exceptional skills. However, she will continue advocating for trans rights in Pakistan, emphasising how the community can be an essential asset for Pakistan's economy, boosting the country's financial situation. 

Saro is currently serving as a Communications Officer in a social organization working on the health of people in her own community.

It should be noted that even before this, she has represented the country many times on an international level; including her work with the United Nations.
