A little boy who was once a poor village kid of Bangladesh. But who knew that this boy would one day leave the country and spread the fame of Bangladesh in abroad. Most of the people know him, and guess what you know him too. So hold on to your breath, this is going to be an exciting, inspirational, and emotional story. It was the 8th of February 1991, when this boy opened his eye in Ghullia, Bangladesh. Yes, his name is Md Hussin Alam. The Bangladeshi village boy now is living in Poland. His academic achievements have caused quite a stir in Europe and around the world.
Yes, I am talking about Md Hussin Alam.
Hussin Alam said, I have achieved these dreams of success with hard work. My tears have become the ink of the pen in every exam. Study in Bangladesh and UK was a biggest challenge for me. It was a great difficulty that I obtained the certificate of a ranking university in Europe, including London. I was born such a poor village in Ghullia of Mohammadpur police station in Magura district. My village 80% people are illiteracy and most of the people live in bottom of the pyramid area. From this village higher study was like a nightmare. I was grew up this village my childhood. In a word, I am a village boy. Since there was no high school in my village, that why I was admitted to Ghullia Dakhil Madrasa. I passed Dakhil exam in 2005 from Ghullia Dakhil Madrasa.
Hussin Alam said, my childhood was very hard and a nightmare. In a village where people start their morning with farming and have to run for their livelihood from one field to another, it is very difficult to find good words for inspirational education. Another main problem was financial difficulties. We had very hard time. We didn’t have enough money for study. I did farm work; full day work salary was only TK 90. I provided lesson for class 3 and 4 when I was class six, it was continued before go to London. The dream of studying in London was the dream of making the impossible to possible.
When I went to Canterbuty, Kent, UK, I didn’t have any place to sleep. Somehow, I found a place for sleep top of the restaurant. My one year expend was around 18/19 thousand pounds, as a middle-class family not possible to give me money for study in UK. To earn this money, I had to do three jobs, including kitchen pottery and cleaning. I used to do cleaning job in the morning, then hospitality management job at University of Kent and in the afternoon I was working as a manager of Indian restaurant till midnight. After work, I would stay up all night studying. I don’t remember how many tears I shed and how many nights I didn’t slept. I remember Friday, Saturday, Sunday, these three days I slept only 2/3 hours. What is hard life I know very well.
