“I have been working for almost 15 years now. For the last 4 years I am working in a garment factory in Tejgaon. However, my story today doesn’t revolve around my work life.
I love dancing. I started dancing since I was a little girl. Of course, like most others, I also started off at home. Every time a nice tune would come on the television or radio, and that’s it! I would be on my feet, dancing. I have been meaning to learn professionally since my childhood. I finally started taking dance classes 5 years ago. Oh well! Better late than never.
My very first stage performance was in Uttara. The performance was flawless, that evening. No mistakes. But here’s the funny part – I was so incredibly nervous that I forgot to smile throughout the performance! Right at the end of my performance, there was a brief silence. Suddenly, one of my co-dancers started showering money on me and I burst out in laughter! The crowd cheered too, and this became one of the most memorable incidents of my life. A moment to cherish!”
