While I was in class 9, I started writing for a newspaper called âShomotolâ, the first community-newspaper in Bangladesh. Being a journalist I witnessed first-hand various crimes, violation of human rights, problems etc. But I was unable to do anything. Neither did I have an idea of how to solve these issues. After completion of high school, I got a scholarship at the Bangladesh Youth Leadership Centre for a four-month long leadership training program entitled âBuilding Bridges Through Leadership Training.â A month of academic studies and 3 months of field work taught me various skills in community-based activities. It also increased in me the sense of responsibility and love for my country. Therefore, I decided to focus firstly on changing myself and then on changing others, as we are very loud when it comes to talking, but hardly available when we are needed for work. I have volunteered for various national and international organizations. I usually work in projects related to Education, Health, Environment, youth empowerment, Social Entrepreneurship etc. As a Delegate I was attend the Youth Leadership Summit 2011. organized by Bangladesh Youth Leadership Center. As a Delegate & representative of Bangladesh I was attend the 1st South Asian Youth Conference, Bangalore, India. Changing hearts and minds is difficult. People always search for that which benefits them, but hardly do they wanna do that which would benefit the society. Here-in is the need for awareness, as most of us love our society, but often lack the desire to contribute. Lacking is the awareness of the fact that the society needs us. Hence, I have been using Facebook, twitter, Linkedin News Papers, Blogs and various other online-networking to bring awareness among the youth.
