There are four members in my family. My father is a Teacher & mother is a homemaker. I have a brother. I’m the first son of my father. My younger brother is still studying at Uttara College.
Talking about my strengths and skills, I’m good at communication skills which enables me to convince people in my favor through logical argument and critical discussion. I am innovative, hardworking and a quick learner. I can work under pressure. I’m computer literate. I participated in extracurricular activities on a regular basis.
I also have a desire to do research. I have also eight research papers published in International journals .
Besides my study, I am also a President of Dhaka Agricultural University Computer Club which is a volunteer club that provides additional computer knowledge exceptional from academic topics to the students of the university and also arranged a number of workshops and seminars regarding higher study.
I believe in working ethics. To the organization where I work, I uphold moral and social ideals. But I have a weakness as well. Despite having decent communication skills, I occasionally have difficulty maintaining appropriate contact with my friends and relatives because I become so involved in a certain task that I forget about the rest of the world.
My hobbies are watching movies, listening to songs, playing cricket.
My ultimate goal is to pursue a career in an organization or in academia. With the appropriate studies I believe that I predict myself as a very successful employee- and customer-oriented manager in an organization, or a faculty member at some leading university in near future.
