She was mostly known for her educational endeavours as Minister of Education and competitions on both a National level and International. Later, she has also begun to show an avid interest in Alliances.
Sparkfyre took great interest in the system of the New World from the very start and almost immediately published her first article in her newspaper, TheJakal., later known as Forged in Fire. By the end of her first two weeks, she had been taken under the wing of &
They guided her from the very beginning and she still considers them to be her go-to people for any political queries or otherwise.
There was a whole dynamic of internal politics at the time which Sparkfyre eventually got entangled with but she maintained her Neutral position for her entire early life.
Minister of Education & Learning the Ways
Within three weeks of joining, Sparkfyre became a cabinet member under the Presidency of Ishamael Naeblis. Though some would think it odd that a new citizen would be given such a position, it turned out for the best! Sparkfyre was able to learn on-the-job, ensuring not only that she had a good grasp on the basic topics but also was able to convey them to others. She was greatly inspired by Kravenn in this regard.
At this point and time, Sparkfyre supported Ishamael Naeblis, even though there were a lot of negative responses to his Presidency. After completing his term, he left for USA.
For several consecutive months she held this position, slowly improving techniques and formats etc (helped by Cluster Storms).
She also became good friends with Muz1, Cluster Storms, Fyr, Kualkerr and .
And then took a pause for RL purposes...
Minister of Foreign Affairs & Internal Politics
TheJakal and Sparkfyre both agreed that some global exposure would be great for her. And though Sparkfyre was a great help, it was clear that Foreign Politics was not for her. She enjoyed her term for the exposure it gave but otherwise did not strive for the position again!
During this term, the internal political climate was rife with anti-DPP propaganda and more specifically anti-TheJakal articles and such. Though Sparkfyre remained neutral still, she made it clear that she would not go against one of her original teachers.
Minister of Education Again ... Shadows Loom
After her interesting experience of the unknown world of Minister of Foreign Affairs, she returned a little reluctantly to the Minister of Education position. However, as before she published a couple of articles and was active in guiding new citizens even before the introduction of the eRepublik Mentor system.
As for the disillusionment, Sparkfyre soon realized that there were some major hypocrisies shown by some citizens in Pakistan. Surprisingly, she found that the root for it was the gold-buying powers of one or more of the citizens. She was disappointed to discover that some citizens would go against TheJakal on account of him being a gold-buyer though those same people would, without hesitance, take advantage of his generosity. But this was only the start for Sparkfyre...
She continued as Minister of Education for a consecutive term.

Sparkfyre's first attempt at a National Level competition was very successful apart from a few errors. Her articleintroduces the competition (the graphics seem to have been misplaced).
The idea was to create activity and a sense of community with healthy competition. The Questions were designed so that answer of one would lead to the IRC channel of the next clue. A treasure hunt of sorts. The questions ranged from the New World(covering in-game activities, Wikipedia, IRC and Pakistani Forums) to general knowledge and mathematics questions!
