"I worked hard and moved around, but my heart was still at my motherland Kashmir," he told IBNS.

He believes in his goals to change the thinking of people, especially the young people in Kashmir, where mere academics is often the only priority.

Now, with his success he has proved with skills you can do anything and can earn much better. He further adds: "Degrees don’t matter to me."

"I am just 17 years and earning much better than any job," he said.

Wasif attributes his success to the support of his sibling Wahid Rashid.

Wasif is spreading motivation all around and empowers youth to do some extraordinary stuff, achieving this along with his studies at Najam-u-Sehar Higher Secondary School.

He was learning new skill every day and to master his skills he kept applying his knowledge in some real-life projects.
