In 2016, Pakistan’s first social media celebrity Qandeel Baloch was murdered: an ‘honor killing’ at the hands of her own brother. Journalist Sanam Maher was compelled to write Qandeel’s story. Join Sanam as she reflects on the woman behind it, and life for young Pakistanis – where they find themselves in society, and where they would like to be.
