“Anything is possible when you have the eagerness to learn. Was 1997 when I started working at a hotel in Japan. From dishwashing to salad dressing and gravy making I did everything and graduated to be the Head Chef in the same hotel. I could have stayed in Japan if I wanted but I longed to come back and so returned to Bangladesh and started my own business.  Won’t say that I didn’t experience loss in business but every time I had a downfall I got back to work with full enthusiasm. Hurdles are imminent in life but that’s no reason to stop. Maybe that’s the reason of my success. Now I own a restaurant, bakery and a food factory where I employ more than 400 people. I plan to expand my business more in future.”
