Getting admitted at Dhaka University is a dream come true for many, as it is a renowned academic institution and only students with very good results gets a chance. In 2019, I was successful in passing the admission test, ranking 156th and got enrolled in the Department of Accounting and Information Systems. I owe my success to GLP where I studied from KG to Class VIII. The supportive and healthy environment at the school helped me to build a strong foundation. Continuous encouragement from my mother, who works as a support staff at the school, gave me the confidence to aim high. My future plan, after completing my graduation in 2024, is to do an MBA and then study Chartered Accountancy. I am proud to be a GLP Badda alumni.
I consider myself fortunate to have the opportunity to study at GLP, Badda, from KG to Class VIII. Encouragement from my teachers gave me the confidence to successfully seek admission for my Class IX and X in Gulshan Model School, where admission exam is very tough. After completing my SSC in 2017 and HSC in 2019, I decided to take a 3 year course in Paramedics which I completed in 2022. Since then, I am working in Medilink Hospital in Badda. I am grateful to GLP for giving me the life changing opportunity by providing the initial years of education and to dream big and pursue a medical career.
I studied at GLP, Gabtoli from KG to Class VIII from 2006 to 2014. Supportive teachers, quality education and friendly environment at GLP helped me to gain a sound foundation and enabled me to continue my education. While at GLP, I looked forward to the nutritious snacks that was provided during the tiffin break. Currently, I am doing my B.A. (Hons) at a local college and also working as a part time computer operator at the City Corporation office.
The years I spent at GLP were of joy in being able to go to school, be able to read and write and go into a new class every year. The class rooms decorated with colourful drawings by children attracted me, teachers trying hard to explain the lessons to us inspired me. My former teachers at GLP, Badda, who worked so hard to make us understand the lessons, must be delighted to know that after completing a 4 year Diploma degree in Dentistry, followed by an internship at a hospital, I am now practicing at my own chamber in Badda Bazar. Simultaneously, I am attending classes for a graduation degree in dentistry. To support my studies at school, I used to work as helper in a local dental clinic and this experience motivated me to seek the profession of a dentist.
If GLP was not located in our area, I would have been deprived of an education. As they did not charge tuition fee, I was able to study from KG to Class VIII. We enjoyed the visits of foreign visitors to our school and they told us funny stories which made us laugh. After completing secondary and higher secondary school, I am now doing my B.Com. in Accounting. I also run a small stationary shop through which I am able to support my educational expenses. I am proud to be a GLP, Gabtoli alumni!
I am extremely grateful to GLP for building in me the confidence, determination and belief that nothing is impossible and girls can achieve the same things as boys. If I did not get the opportunity to study at GLP, I would not have been where I am today. I studied at GLP, Badda from KG to Class VIII. Despite financial problems, I did not drop out and in 2021 did my SSC from Badda High School. As I want to pursue higher education and do not want to be a burden on my parents, I am working in the evenings as a waitress in a Japanese restaurant in Gulshan. This has helped me to add to the family’s income and at the same time pay for my college expenses. I shall complete my HSC from Gulshan Commerce College this year. I am proud of GLP, Badda.
