A role model for almost every person in our generation, Zebu Jilani is giving back to her community in Swat Valley, Pakistan. Swat Valley is one of the regions in Pakistan that many have not heard of. Taliban militants took control of Swat in 2007 and current issues that took place after the earthquake in 2009 brought Swat to mainstream media. Instead of learning about its beauty and what it was originally, as termed by Queen Elizabeth, the "Switzerland of Pakistan", Swat became known as the tribal region occupied by Taliban militants. The whole system has changed in some locations within the district, and what was destroyed needs to be rebuilt. From healthcare to education for its women, Zebu and her husband have found a non-profit organization to improve water quality, health care and reduce poverty of its women and children. Her eloquent speech and passion for her town makes Zebu a very inspirational person to learn from. She's a woman doing things that mostly men would do. Zebu leads her team of social and health workers with her to Swat and directly helps local villagers in Swat Valley. Her husband is behind her and supports her along the way. She exemplifies the kind of woman that is portrayed less in the media.
