Using my skills, I have also been mentoring other artists, and have gone to different districts in Bangladesh, to help them perform. I am interested in working in a creative and challenging work environment. Where I can flourish to my full potential. As a creative person, I would like to contribute in a meaningful way for the organization that I work for, thus playing a significant role to achieve the goal of the organization. In this respect, I would also like to work with new concepts and ideas.
