Statement of Intent. A statement of no more than 1,500 words on academic and professional interests and goals.
I believe, my life journey is to bring social equity to any community via social entrepreneurship in education field. Why me I have worked at corporate America for seventeen plus years. During this time, I have consulted with my friends like Iqbal Quadir and have come in very close contact successful social entrepreneurs like Sir. Fazle Abed of BRAC NGO founder in Bangladesh. Like them, I have started similar initiatives myself. E2D Education Services Inc is the result of my journey towards social equity for all, using education as the vehicle. Today, e2D education services can provide service to a community of 20,000 students for after school math education regardless of the students socio-economic background. The more I work towards my life goal the more I find so much to learn from my friends who are in the same journey.
I have seen an NGO who strives to provide high quality after school program in Brazil s most dangerous neighborhood. I have seen schools that are floating in rivers in rural Bangladesh. I have seen a residential school in Washington, DC which prevents students of color from dropping out of school. I have seen organizations which operate in Chicago s most dangerous neighborhood and try to prevent youth violence and death. I have studied with an African refugee student who fled the country because if he voiced his opinion he could have been killed. Among so much goodness, my efforts and journey seem very justifiable.
I was stunned to see a 21 year old young man planned and killed global citizens who went to serve Bangladesh (Holly Artisan incident in Bangladesh: terrorism kills 18 foreigners in Bangladesh). I became more puzzled to see when an 18 year old student, who did not live his friend from different religion and accepted death as honor in the hand of self proclaimed jihadists. Both of these men were from Bangladesh. I was born in Bangladesh. Given my upbringing was different; I can see how I could be in either of the sides.
From my Masters Degree seminar at University of St. Thomas, one of my peers stated Students really do not learn anything from the classroom; they learn everything outside the classroom . With reasonable limitation of this statement, I truly believe there is a proportional truth to this. The reason I did not derail, because my parents, friends and my home tutor. After school learning from my home tutors has transformed my life. Co-incidentally I now own a Global afterschool franchise which is present in 16 countries and able to provide part time employment to thousands of youth.
While American schools are consistently failing to close the achievement gap. After school franchise ventures like Sylvan and Mathnasium are transforming how learning could be very individualized with an 90% track record of one student success at a time (EdLab). While they are doing well within their own small focused communities, due to limited resources these programs are not able to have more transformative effects. To increase their scope of service outreach we need to adopt solution like ExpandEd research from Wallace foundation. Wallace foundation have created programs like Sprocket. Sprocket is a network of service providers, youth workers, parents, students and teachers who are more involved in youth empowerment movement.
More involved and active parents and teachers after school means, more involved youth. More involved youth means more educated and emotionally balanced future citizens. These educations are more individualized, culturally conscious and socially just. Since they will learn to deal with their friends and neighbors more, they will know how to better manage their conflict. Due to the influence of online internet culture, I find my son to be growing up more isolated that how I grew up. We always went outside of the house and played as groups. It was something that naturally came to us, but for my son, it seems like we need to manufacture something to make a playdate happen. Multiple call, time alignment and two parents to give ride and approval.
Imagine a day in future we have busing or Uber type of carpooling happening between the time of 3 to 7PM after the school. 20 plus locations are hosting both free and paid activities from selling coffee, dinner to tutoring to playing games. Everyone knew that they could just hop in to any of these activity transportations and be at a location in 5 -10 minutes to hang out with the community and this could be any week of the day. If we could not afford to participate in these programs, there is a sliding fee for those who cannot afford these programs. This is not an imagination, it is already a reality in 12 American major cities. So, my non-profit foundation initiative of The After School is that journey. I would love to see that my children are growing up in a school district, where social equity truly exist in every academic level.
One idea we struggle with even after school, that so many students do not have proper home learning experience. We have seen SEED residential schools by Operah Angel investment foundation, a residential school program with at risk students. Similarly, in Pernambuco, Brazil the governor and the state has created a program called Win the world (Ganhar o mundo) . These students when they return to their communities can have transformative life changing experiences. Imagine some of these students were hosted with families with stability and could get world class education at a local school or at a global school. Imagine affordability of these programs are within reach of any American families. It is possible to create such organization. It does exist today within America. Colleges like Berea college and Universities like Harvard can provide indiscriminately world class program to any student who qualify for such programs.
I have worked with several global organizations to scale out their academic operations globally. These involved non-profit startup, grant proposal, fund raising, program piloting, partnership development and any such initiatives. As my small organization grows globally, I would like to be more equipped with knowledge, platform and a global academic platform. This will allow me to recruit my peers and make differences in the future communities that I would like to work with. By joining Columbia University, I will be more close the global practitioners in my field. I am confident we will mutually enrich each other s portfolios as global educators.
