She was also featured in the campaign called #ChangeTheClap which was initiated by Asia Pacific Transgender Network (APTN) in partnership with with BBDO Pakistan.

Moreover, she recently did an empowerment shoot with Generation, a leading clothing brand, which focused on women who rose above dogmatic views and took the challenges head-on to pursue their passion.

Irha future plan is to study abroad and return back to Pakistan to implement all that she learned and bring a positive change in the trans-community.
