Pop sensation Momina Mustehsan has made it to BBC?s list of 100 inspirational women of 2017 from across the globe.

?The women on the list will be part of the 100 Women Challenge, tackling some of the biggest problems facing women around the world,? BBC reported. ?Coming together in four teams, the women will create innovate ways to tackle the glass ceiling, female illiteracy, street harassment and sexism in sports.?

Mustehsan, a rising star in the world of music from Pakistan, is so far the only woman from the country on the list that has yet to fill 40 spaces.

She told the news outlet the quote that helped her most in life: ?It only gets better when you get better.? The 25-year-old singer said she found the quote inside a fortune cookie when she was binge-eating through depression. ?That

woke me up.?

Besides being a singer, Mustehsan is an engineer and an ambassador for a cricket team, Islamabad United of Pakistan Super League.

Other than Mustehsan, those on the list from Asia include Mehroonisa Siddiqui Indian homemaker and mother of actor Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Rupi Kaur Canadian-Indian author and Sakena Yacoobi educationist from Afghanistan.
