Founder and President

After completing my Ph.D. from the School of Health and Human Development in Penn State, I joined the College of Brockport at State University of New York as a faculty. My interest in helping children and young people realize their potential started early during my Undergrad years when I was one of the founder members of AIESEC Bangladesh- a local branch of an International Student organization. I was further intrigued on the area while I started my first job at UNICEF Bangladesh and was given the responsibility to spearhead the first time held Youth Forum in 1999. Realizing the lack of sense of purpose and interest in learning for learning’s sake among most of my students at the college and also in schools—- I decided to start Heroes for All to help each young mind become stronger understanding their own abilities that can guide them to live a life of purpose. Quote I live by: “be yourself- not your idea of what you think somebody else's idea of yourself should be.”―Henry David Thoreau
My Mission: To support children and young people become conscious and aware global citizen who would know how to utilize their true potential to create a better world.
