According to the post, Meerab is pursuing an undergraduate degree in Fashion Designing and does her night duty as a KFC rider to cover her fees. She intends to remain a rider for another three years until she graduates post, which she plans to launch her own fashion brand.

"I got so excited that I stood outside the gate to receive her and we (my friends and I) spoke to her for a good 10 minutes about many things, including her pursuits, passion and bike riding skills," said Ijaz.

Users praised Meerab's passion and sense of responsibility.

"Thank you so much for the shoutout Fizza Ijaz Meerab makes us so proud!
