Standing in front of bright, idealistic BBLTJ participants, I often find that even if we come from different backgrounds, our thinking is the same. That we are not merely a part of a classroom, but a unit. This sense of solidarity motivates me to unite young minds to foster social cohesion in Bangladesh
