Farjana Akter is an outstanding eighth-grade student. She is so focused and diligent in her studies that she received GPA 5 (the highest possible) on her first board exam in class 5. She came to Dhaka with her parents, like so many others, with the expectation of a better future. Her father owns a little grocery store, while her mother works as a housekeeper for others. Despite their little income, they ensure that their children attend school. They just have one room to live in. Farjana wants to continue her education and has high plans for the future.

“In the future, I want to be a doctor and help people. I want to please my parents.” – Farjana said.
