Bengali Word of the Day January 13th

নিচু (Nicu) Humble

Today we found out that our team member Shamir Shebab is being awarded the Queen’s Young Leader Award for his work in establishing the Bangladesh Youth Environment Initiative. There is no one more deserving of this award than Shamir.  He is very dedicated to the environment of Bangladesh and is one of the hardest workers I have ever met.  One of the most surprising things about Shamir is how humble he is.  He has accomplished amazing things and yet never brags or shows off about all his work. Most of the students we have encountered here in Bangladesh are like that.  They work tirelessly for their causes and yet never once feel like they should be honored for their work. They help because they want to help. I find that truly incredible!!!! Congrats to Shamir and his organization for all the hard work they have accomplished.
