This case study consists of a combination of multiple intelligences for example; higher intrapersonal skills, creative development, self-concept with self-identity, determination, and passion in achieving desired goals of an early adult named Ms. Ayesha Awan. She is a student and working textile design professional and lives with her three siblings and a mother who is a single parent. According to many theorists and psychologists, a child has to face much trouble in any developmental stage of life who has been brought up by a single parent. However, after observing and interviewing Ayesha, it has been found that though having a stressful and negative childhood, she gained strength from her mother and set goals for herself, and work tremendously to achieve them. This case study can be used as a counseling paradigm for adolescents who face similar social and personal issues.
