Last updated: August 29, 2017 at 20:58 pm

2009 – Rosheen Khan became the first female scuba diving instructor in Pakistan after undergoing training in Thailand. Ms. Khan, a PADI Master Scuba Diver Trainer (MSDT), is originally from the province of Balochistan where women are often not allowed to complete their education. Scuba diving is still an uncommon activity in conservative Pakistan, where tight fitting wetsuits are considered improper by many. Ms. Khan is now the Director of Training at the Karachi Scuba Diving Center.
