I got involved in GSU by founding and running Bangladeshi Society (BSoc).

Tell us about your course at greenwich?
I studied BA H International Business with Economics (IBE). IBE prepared me to work efficiently in different cultures and leadership styles. Economics pathway made me aware of the political settings of businesses worldwide.
What makes you #ProudToBeGRE?
Connecting scattered Bangladeshis students and creating a platform makes me #ProudToBeGRE! Worth mentioning, in GSU Activities Awards 2021 BSoc won two awards, Society Community and The Best New Society award in its first year of journey under my leadership. Working as Green Ambassador to make Greenwich green and as Outreach Ambassador for Department of Economics and International Business to encourage primary school students from disadvantage background to study at Greenwich makes me #ProudToBeGRE!
