Assalamualaikum (May PEACE be upon you)
This is Adnan Firoze from Bangladesh. I'm a senior at college and have completed my Computer Science and Engineering major and finishing my minor in English Linguistics this semester and hope to graduate this December.
Life has been kind to me in every possible way - from academics to family. I have a nice home, two doctors as both of my parents and an extraordinary sister.
And my interests lie in music (I play the drums), mathematics, diplomacy, diversity of cultures and anything related to "peace" (which ever way you perceive that is up to your interpretation).
Someday, I wish to work higher up at UNICEF or "Save The Children" cause I want to make a difference by contributing by playing a pioneering role in making a world without "hungry children." The dream is to find food and shelter for children and not to find any hungry children - not here in Bangladesh, not in Somalia, not ANYWHERE. I have started my first step by sponsoring a school student for her education in rural Bangladesh through the Serve-BD Society ( http://www.serve-bd.org ).
That should tell my story.
