Sharar Mahbub Dhrubo, Former Research Intern at CBGA.

“Joining the prestigious and renowned CBGA and having the opportunity to work with my respected teachers, seniors, and overall, some extraordinary and talented people is one of the most notable things that ever happened in my life. As a learner and the most junior researcher, I always learn from my senior colleagues and respected teachers. These beautiful people have added an extra meaning to my life that I always cherish from the core of my heart. Without any doubt, CBGA showered me with blessings, support, and affection that, I believe, will always be marked as precious gifts to me.”
