A student but married, Nazmin Bagum has got A+ in her Secondary School Certificate (S.S.C) board exam 2010 from Amberkhana Girls’ High School and College, Sylhet, Bangladesh. Behind her success the path she underwent was really harsh. She was in a different frame of life just a year ago, Nazmin’s father, a mason, got cancer and became a burden to the family. Her mother, Zohra Begum, had all the responsibility to drive the family alone. She had a dilemma financially about her husband’s cure and her daughter’s education expenses. Meanwhile, there was a wedding proposal for her daughter Nazmin from Middle East. Thinking about the poor situation of her family, Nazmin’s mother thought it would be the wise decision to stop Nazmin’s education and give her marriage to Jamil Ahmad in Jakigong who came from Middle East.
After wedding Nazmin’s new life started with torture, ignorance and misbehaves by the in-law’s family members. Within one year, her husband went to Middle East and Nazmin stayed in her in-laws house. Yet, excessive suffering by her mother-in-law she had to detach from her husband and that house. Inconsolable Nazmin came back home but grew strong desire to prove herself, live with self-esteem. Therefore, she were admit in her previous school Amberkhana Girls’ High School and College. The struggles of her life were not finished yet...
Her admission in the middle of the year in class ten was really a complex procedure for her and for the school also. This time she embraced right people’s hands. Her class teacher Madam Zahida Bagum, my mother, helped with her admission and get her admitted in class ten to get prepared for S.S.C exam. Along with Nazmin’s class teacher, her mathematics teacher used to take care of her with extra attention as well due to her critical condition of life. In one of her television interviews, she acknowledged both teachers and their contribution on her success. Her teachers not only helped her financially but also helped her psychologically to go further. The principal said that she was never been noticed at class as a good student, but her victory really changed his attention. At the end Nazmina has achieved her desire, achieved her goal through her dedication, industriousness and self-confidence. Cruelty of life should not be an obstacle to success because there is only one chance in life to prove self.
