Ms. Mehvish Zahoor also added to the newsletter and welcomed Ms. Ammara Ghani, Peshawar Sub-section representative to the Pakistan WIE Forum.

One of the most prominent features of the spring volume was an exclusive interview with Ma’am Ramaltha Marimuthu, Chairperson IEEE Women In Engineering. Ms, Hudaisa Afzal being the interviewee, balanced the interview perfectly by asking Ramaltha questions about her personal, volunteer and professional life, and what are her aims and vision for IEEE Women In Engineering.

This Newsletter volume also contained Remarks from honorable IEEE personals, Mr. Om Parkash, R10 Student Representative (2011), who has always been a motivation for the Women In Engineering Affinity Groups in Pakistan and for the Pakistan WIE Forum and Mr. Amir Zahoor, Chairman IEEE GOLD Sweden Affinity Group, also one of the founders of the Pakistan WIE Forum, who has been a great source of inspiration for the Pakistan WIE Forum.
