Leading the Skateboarding Community
Vice President of Bangladesh Skateboarding Community
As the Vice President of Bangladesh Skateboarding Community, I have been actively involved in promoting and growing the skateboarding culture in Bangladesh. I have organized numerous events and initiatives to bring together skateboarders from all over the country, and to encourage new participants to take up the sport. This experience has allowed me to develop strong leadership, interpersonal, and event-planning skills, which I apply to my work in social media marketing and beyond.
I have a keen eye for design and a passion for creating visually appealing and user-friendly interfaces. I have honed my design skills using tools such as Canva, Figma, and Illustrator, and have extensive experience in UI design. My clients appreciate my ability to understand their design needs and my attention to detail in delivering custom, professional, and high-quality designs.
With a degree in English Literature, I bring a love for the written word and a passion for crafting captivating content. My expertise in writing runs the gamut from social media posts to advertisements to emails. I use my skills to create content that is not just informative, but also connects with the intended audience on an emotional level.
Marketing is my passion, and I bring a wealth of knowledge and experience to the table.

When I’m not working on social media marketing, you can find me behind the lens capturing stunning photos and videos. My passion for videography and editing has led me to work with local clients to bring their stories to life through visual content. My love of skateboarding also extends to documenting the local skateboarding community, where I have the opportunity to create amazing videos of skaters in action.
