I came upon a facebook page called One Young World by mere chance. I became ecstatic with the various possibilities a summit of this magnitude can have on youths of our country and the world.
I am in my last year studying Marketing and Human Resource Management. I have always considered myself to be one of many. I am not a special person with unique attributes that people can admire.
I am an average person with simple needs, who cares for her community, for the women and children of her country. As the former member of North South Social Service Club, I have participated in various programs. I have worked with members of the Quantum foundation and helped them organize the Blood Donation drive. I have helped raise funds for relief during natural calamities such as cyclone Sidr and Aila. I have helped a private organization’s venture by providing homeless people with winter clothes. I have volunteered in the Human Trafficking Awareness program and have written a research paper on the women and children trafficking in Bangladesh and their rehabilitation.
I am very grateful to be chosen as an OYW delegate and to have the chance to represent my country. I believe that youth of today’s world does not need special qualities to become a leader. With passion, dedication and motivation to strive for the best anything can be achieved. I came across a girl who needs to take at least 60 pills and 15 injections for different complications due to an autoimmune disease. She has never lost hope; instead she has been fighting the disease and continues to study in one of my most prestigious universities of our country. This kind of faith is what makes youths of our time so strong.
I plan to portray the essence of Bangladesh at the OYW Summit. I hope to make as many friends as possible with our future world leaders and bring every single country from different cultures under one platform and form a new family- A One Young World.
