Born and raised in California, USA, Kevaan Hasnain is a young American Pakistani who is the newly awarded Mr. Pakistan World 2020. Hasnain belongs to Lahore, Punjab from Pakistan and is keen on promoting Pakistan in many international contests in the coming year.
The year will be very busy for Hasnain as he will be meeting international and national political dignitaries from the Governor of Punjab Chaudhry Mohammad Sarwar to various party heads conveying the message of the youth and advocating for a positive image of Pakistan. Hasnain is one of the many pioneers in bringing both Pakistani and American backgrounds in the limelight and is concentrating this year on bringing the focus on the youth and the issues the youth faces in Pakistan.
Kevaan Hasnain will also be going to international pageants in Mexico and Malaysia in the coming months where he will be solely representing Pakistan amongst other nations.
He is currently in the university studying Business and takes time out to work towards various charities. He has helped and promoted charities such as SOS Village and Edhi Foundation and will be aiming at spending more time helping more charities this year.
When asked about his winning the title, Kevaan said, “It feels amazing, it’s truly surreal for me. It’s always been my goal to be a leader, a role model, and set a good example for others. Just as I have been inspired by certain successful people from the previous generation, I intend to pay it forward to the next generation as well. I hope to make a difference in Pakistan, the country where my roots lie and a nation that has been so kind to me. In the next coming months, I plan on giving back to several charities that I care about. It’s important to give back to the community and help the underprivileged.
I also plan on speaking to representatives in the Pakistani government on how I can help Pakistan and make a positive impact. My plans for international pageants are to represent Pakistan on a global stage and make my country proud as I will be promoting the travel and tourism industry of Pakistan as well. I want to accomplish a lot for Pakistan and gain respect as well as recognition for my country and fellow Pakistanis.”
Sonia Ahmed, President of Mr. Pakistan World said, “Last year was a very active year for us with international pageants, and I’m sure 2020 will be even busier. With Kevaan Hasnain being the current Mr. Pakistan World, we are hoping to cover more international contests and represent Pakistan in as many contests as possible.
Our primary aim is also to work with some of the charitable organizations in Pakistan and cover topics like women issues, youth and child abuse. We are also joining hands with various organizations to promote travel and tourism for Pakistan. So, we are looking for a full year of various activities and hopefully we can bring Pakistan on the map in regards to competing internationally.”
