Lahore is a city known for its cultural richness and artistry. Among the many talented individuals striving to make a mark in the vast world of entertainment, there’s one name that stands out – Darood Adeel.
A 22-year-old university student, Darood juggles her studies with her role as a student marketeer for Red Bull Pakistan. But that’s not where her journey ends. While many her age are still figuring out their paths, Darood has already ventured into the world of talent management, with @mustisphotos, a budding music artist, being one of her prized talents.
Recently, @mustisphotos made his debut performance at Royal Palm in Lahore. Under Darood’s guidance, he took the stage alongside leading Pakistani artists such as Faris Shafi, Hasan Raheem, and Young Stunners. And if sources are to be believed, he captivated the audience with his artistry, proving his mettle among the seasoned artists.
How did Darood venture into talent management? She reveals, “I never really thought about it, honestly. I just made a public account, and the overwhelming love and support I received from people around me propelled me to reach greater heights.”
However, as is often the case, the journey to success isn’t a bed of roses. Darood admits, “It’s challenging to strike a balance between education, a job, and my business.
Yet, these challenges have sculpted me, teaching me how to multitask effectively.”
Her tenacity and passion are evident in her achievements. The young influencer recently garnered a whopping 4 million views on one of her videos, an accomplishment she fondly reminisces about.
But with the joys of success also come the challenges of being in the public eye. Darood says, “When you’re a public figure, there’s a mix of adoration and criticism. While I cherish the positive feedback, I’ve learned to brush aside the negativity and stay focused on my journey.”
Looking ahead, Darood is optimistic. “In the next five years, I envision myself spearheading my own talent management business. While continuing my journey as an influencer, I am especially eager to elevate artists like @mustisphotos to global recognition.”
Darood attributes a significant portion of her growth to her experience at Red Bull Pakistan. “Working as a student marketeer has been transformative. From enhancing my communication skills to refining my personality, the opportunities and faith bestowed upon me by the Red Bull team have been instrumental in shaping who I am today,” she expresses with gratitude.
As she continues her journey, Darood is a beacon of inspiration for many young talents in Lahore and beyond. With her unwavering determination, passion, and the support of platforms like Red Bull Pakistan, the sky’s the limit for this rising star.
