I am from Bangladesh. I came to New Orleans in 2016. Moving to another university for higher education without any hostel life experience was tough initially. I took it as a challenge and tried to gather new experiences. After coming here I met with many people from different backgrounds. I also experienced different cultural events which broadened my outlook. A girl who was living with parents turned into a strong, independant lady. My friends and Tulane community helped me a lot thoughout this journey. I am going to graduate with a M.Sc. having lots of memories and inspiring experiences.
