Zenith decided to fulfill the dream of her late father of traveling around the world on a motorbike. The journey was a huge step for a girl in Pakistani where it’s sometimes taboo for women to venture out alone. She embarked on a six-day journey to Kashmir and a 20-day adventure to the Khunjerab Pass on the border with China. She has taken two trips since then, riding into Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and Gilgit Baltistan, completing 20,000 kilometers on her motorcycle.

She doesn’t fear the man who has practiced 10,000 kicks once, but fears the man who has practiced one kick 10,000 times. Eman is surely a ‘Bonanza Satrangi Women’ as she resonates patience and perseverance.
