Shazil Paracha was born in Darya Khan (Bhakkar), a backward city of South Punjab. When he was 4 years old, he was introduced to computers for the first time in his life. As a curious child, obsessed with technology, Shazil quickly learned how to use basic computer functions. He was taught by his father.
Shazil’s father had a good running business but gave his family, particularly Shazil good time that helped him grow as an inspiring young boy. As Shazil grew, his interest in computers grew as well. After gathering information about websites, primarily internet-based businesses, Shazil decided to build his own blog. He designed and developed his first blog when he was only 14 years old.
A year later, In 2019 when he was 15 years old, he started his freelancing career by providing web designing and graphic designing services for clients on freelance marketplaces such as Fiverr, Upwork.
There was no institute teaching online earning skills in his city. Initially, he faced a lot of problems but his resentment to defy the odds/challenges and learning on his own; helped him progress in his obsession to make money online.
Using YouTube, he learned Graphic Design skills from GFX Mentor (Imran Ali Dina). Then in one interview, he saw Hisham Sarwar LIVE with Imran Dina on the GFX mentor channel, he started following Hisham Sarwar YouTube channel.
The urge to learn “how to make money online” did not stop there. He wanted to get a certificate of his learnings and came across Digiskills after watching one video on Hisham Sarwar’s YouTube channel. Shazil enrolled in the Digiskills program, learned Freelancing (again after watching Hisham Sarwar’s videos), and also learned Graphic designing. He completed both pieces of training and received certificates too.
Shazil started working online by creating more than 4 accounts on Fiverr initially (all disabled) but that did not stop him. He did not lose heart. never got demotivated from this loss. He wanted to become a successful freelancer and worked hard until his lucky day arrived.
Eventually, after a lot of struggle, Shazil achieved his dream of making money online. On Fiverr, he completed a 15$ order. The first order took 4 months. The second-order however did not take much longer. It took 18 days for Shazil to get the second order. Soon. he achieved a level one badge in June 2020.
From there onwards, this aspiring — hard-working teenager never looked back. Today, he continues to make a huge footprint as a successful freelancer by working on Fiverr and on the platforms on the internet.
