I studied in humanities or in arts group in all my life. So, at first, computer was a scary thing. However, I was attracted to Internet as I am always fond of knowledge and information. It was not easy for me to become skilled in using computer and Internet. Luckily or unluckily, in 1999, a new computer magazine was published in Bangladesh called ‘Computer Tomorrow’. They needed a freelance writer who could translate or write articles based on foreign magazines.
It was not a job for me but a freelance work. At first, it was very difficult for me as I did not still own a desktop PC. So, often, I wrote about the things that I had no idea. So, I had to struggle a lot but I decided to work very hard. I used to go the Computer Tomorrow office and spend hours every day reading many articles in English language. I started doing it from 1 September 1999 and by the end of the year, I gained good knowledge about this field of IT (Information Technology).
In 2000, I wrote many articles, reports and interviews for different Computer Magazines. On 1 January 2002, I decided to leave my job and totally focus on learning about Internet. I spent two years in a cyber café- day and night and night and day, 15 hours a day.
Again, it was not easy at all. It was a challenge and now I realize that this simple effort has changed my life. Now, I am the president of e-Commerce Association of Bangladesh.
I inspire all of you because I have seen that if you try for something from your heart you can achieve it. I have not become a Bill Gates or Steve Jobs but I have become the first president of e-Commerce Association of Bangladesh. Now, I am trying for this platform of Search English for all of you to learn English freely.
All of you are lucky because I have used all my knowledge, talent, effort and experience to build this platform for you. So, the only thing that you need to give is time and effort. We will have one after another success stories from January 2017. Of course, you have to be regular but the future is bright. I can say it from my own experience in life.
