I am passionate about

Actions

As an Advisory Panelist of the Queen’s Young Leaders Programme, I make recommendation to the Executive Board of the Queen Elizabeth Diamond Jubilee Trust to select the Awardees and Runners Up for the Award. In the last two years, the most rewarding aspect of my work in the QYLP has been seeing 120 young leaders from across the commonwealth develop their leadership capacities, scale up their projects and intensify their impact in their respective communities. I'm currently the Editor-In-Chief of Dhaka Law Review, the first of its kind student run publication in Bangladesh that provides law students, academicians, and professionals a novel and accessible platform to showcase their work and thoughts. The organization publishes authors from all over and a team of 7 excellent editors ensure the impartiality of the pieces published. I’ve worked with Bangladesh Youth Environmental Initiative (BYEI), a youth led nonprofit capacity building organization, for five years since 2011. Through the organization, I’ve trained high school students on the basics of climate change and sustainability and equipped them with skills to design and implement community development projects that aim to resolve local issues. Through the organization, I have also trained students on effective communication and rapport building to engage their focus groups in their projects.
