My decision to take admission at the Department of English and Humanities (DEH) in the University of Liberal Arts Bangladesh (ULAB) was not pre-planned, but that sudden decision just changed my life. I began to reinvent myself after choosing to pursue my degrees as a Literature major. At DEH, learning is more than earning grades. I started seeing the beauty of liberal arts, a pursuit of holistic knowledge that engages us with life. Our extremely qualified faculty, most of whom have years of experience of teaching or studying abroad, instilled a passion in me for active learning. They opened my eyes and made me see more than just what the front door had been showing me for years. They taught me to expand the horizons of my mind and understand the wide world outside. It was indeed a journey through excellence. And the greatest lesson that my university has given me is a belief that I can bring change not only to myself but also to the people around me, the world around me.
