     - Dhaka, Bangladesh
    The MBBS degree followed by one year internship at Dhaka Medical College enabled me to equip myself with not only the diagnosis and treatment of day to day medical problems but also instilled in me a great sense of empathy. Even though I didn't pursue the career of a clinician, I always owe to this institute for teaching me hard work, perseverance and accomplishing goals on a tight deadline.

    EMK Small GrantEMK Center
    Since 2012, EMK Small Grant has supported motivated individuals who have the courage and conviction to take on major challenges; individuals who have a spirit of enterprise, initiating projects for the betterment of the community. I won the small grant back in 2017 with my proposal to organize a writing workshop for LGBTQ writers. The award money was used to organize the 7-day long workshop where 10-15 prospective writers from LGBTQ community participated. It was an eye-opening experience as this enabled me to understand the need for training among the budding writers. The sessions also enabled the young wordsmiths to connect with some of the renowned editors, writers and philosophers from Dhaka who also appreciated the initiative.
