Study-In-Blog-Karte-HeidelbergI love life and all that it has to offer, including its ups and downs. I am currently pursuing my M.A. in Health and Society South Asia from the South Asia Insitute at the University of Heidelberg. Prior to joining this programme, I was a research associate at the University of Liberal Arts Bangladesh. I have co-authored several short articles on social and economic issues. I also worked as a sub-editor and feature writer at the Daily Star. Right now, I consider myself extremely fortunate to be studying at one of the best universities in Europe with some of the brightest individuals that I have come across. Apart from my new friends, I have my eight-year old son to keep me company. He is attending the German Elementary School (Grundschule) and has already become quite fluent in the language! Our home is nestled amid the lush green hills only a few minutes away from the Neckar river.
