I am passionate to do community servicing through leadership for the betterment of my country as well as the world. Therefore I am connected and spend a lot of time in community servicing in different nonprofit organizations to make people aware about different type of social problems to bring a positive changes in the world. Besides working in different nonprofit social organizations to motivate young people to get involved in community service works as leaders and active citizen, I am personally doing a project on child labor in Bangladesh to come up with a sustainable and better solution to stop child labor and create a better education system for the working children in Bangladesh. To stop gender based violence especially violence against women I am working with different nonprofit organizations mainly using new media and networks as tools to create awareness among the people especially the young generation. Besides writing article in several newspapers and magazine and blogs, through my photography I like to bring up critical environmental issues of Bangladesh. To fulfill my goals as successful activist and active leader, I am passionate to learn from different fields of knowledge to come up with better sustainable and applicable solutions.
