This girl is going places, and inspiring millions of young professionals across the globe, especially Pakistani women to step up their professional game. The daughter of Attaullah Khan Isakhelvi, a well known musician belonging to Pakistan, chose visual arts as her line of profession, and has stood out to practice her professional skills in the latest release of the Tom Cruise franchise, Mission Impossible Fallout.
Laraib is the youngest Pakistani VFX artist, and the first time we could see her credits in an actual movie in Hollywood was when she was 19, would you believe that? In an interview with BBC, Laraib says that she had an absolute zero percent idea what she was getting into, but she was affected by the fact that ‘Visual Effects’ is one of those elements creating magic for the viewers to enjoy. The first time she got impressed enough to think what goes behind the scenes was when Toy Story emerged as a brilliant concept that touched the hearts of many teenagers and children. Claiming she always knew she had to do something related to art and technology, her determination, support from parents, and her relentless efforts made her land to the spot light, inspiring enough to be talked about on global platforms.
Laraib says she wants to work upon women empowerment, and she hopes to inspire talented women to be a part of this industry, specifically mentioning Pakistani women. Through her first hand experience, she said there are still more than 70% men in this industry, but she would like to see that number increase in the coming times.
Her credits include’ X-Men: Days of Future Past’, ‘The Chronicles of Narnia’, ’10,000 BC’, ‘Prince of Persia’, ‘Sweeney Todd’, ‘Mission Impossible Fallout’ among others, and maybe a lot more in the days to come, as her drive and her determination, both are giving us a hint she’ll rock it in future.
