The Youth Summit in Heilbronn is approaching at a really fast pace. Not only German, but students from all over the world have joined our mission so far and will be present that day – on site or virtually. We asked the students, what their expectations are and what the Youth Summit means to them. The first series of our comment section features the students from Rangdhonu, a cultural school in Bangladesh, „sourced by labor, love and collective dreams“, according to their own mission.

Both of my parents work in the garment industry, but unfortunately, my father Aminul Islam Shama passed away in 2020. I have one sister, and my mother continues to work in a factory to support our family. For the past two and a half years, I have been involved with Rangdhonu (Rainbow) cultural school, where I have been learning and exploring new things. I am also receiving training to become a tutor in the future. Currently, I am a student in class IX at Srishty Central School and College. I have a keen interest in astronomy and learning about global warming. By participating in the youth summit, I hope to have the opportunity to exchange ideas with students from diverse cultures. I am eager to learn about their way of life, culture, and perspectives. Attending the summit will provide me with the chance to explore new topics and gain new insights. I believe this experience will broaden my knowledge and give me a fresh outlook on the world.

I have been working with the cultural school Rangdhonu (Rainbow) for almost three years, and I am currently serving as a coordinator there. My mother works in the garment industry. I have recently completed my higher secondary school exam and am now preparing to take admission exams for university. In my free time, I enjoy playing with colors and doing painting. I am excited about the youth summit in Germany because I believe it will provide an excellent opportunity to learn more about the environment and meet students from diverse regions. As I have not had many opportunities to learn from different cultures and acquire new skills, I am eager to interact and learn from my fellow participants. Overall, I hope the summit will broaden my horizons and equip me with new knowledge and perspectives that I can use to create a better future for myself and my community.
