My first thought when I learned I was awarded this scholarship

I was wordless with joy when I learned I was awarded this scholarship as first women from Bangladesh to study Master of Science in “Manufacturing Systems Engineering” at Hong Kong polytechnic University.

Why I’m interested in trade

Trade has increased the flow of goods, services, money, people, knowledge and jobs across geographic and political boundaries. Technology has brought us instantaneous communication with the remotest regions of the world. Today, all business is global, competition comes from everywhere, and jobs are borderless. During my working period I have travelled some country (some part of China, Malaysia, and India) and I have visited many footwear factories, last making, out sole making and mould making factories. It helps my skills to meet with global industry and professional standards. Develop a universal work identity and this was only possible due to trade.

What I’ll bring to my dorm to remind me of home

I bought with me valuable feelings from my family. In one sense it is very hard for me to stay here without my family but in other sense it will remind me to utilize my time here as efficiently as possible. Those feeling are the source of hard working.

My favorite hobbies and other interests

In my leisure time I enjoy most with historical western movies and music (Bengali, Hindi & English). I am very much passionate about travelling. Though it is out of my boundary to travel whole world but I always nurture this dream with me.

My proudest achievement so far in life

There are some good achievements in my life. But I think one of the proudest achievements from those to be first women Hinrich Foundation scholar from Bangladesh.
