Scholarship That Fulfilled My Dream

I am a student of department of Oceanography of University of Dhaka. I got a scholarship to do my internship at NIO, India. That scholarship program was jointly sponsored by French embassy–Dhaka and National Institute of Oceanography, Goa, India.

My background was biology. So, I worked there with Dr. Nagappa Ramaiah who was a scholar on biology. I was so lucky because I got such famous and eminent teacher as my supervisor. Unfortunately there was no French scientist in Biological Division at NIO, so I had to miss the guidance of French scientist. But, I learned so many things at biological lab of NIO. I believe strongly that training made me skilled person in the field of Biological Oceanography. Now, I am confident enough to do something better in this field because I know how to deal with it.

The people of NIO and Goa are so nice; they are so simple in their way of life. I was glad to see their simplicity and kinship. I loved their food habit especially the sea fish “Kingfish”. I am missing the lab of NIO and Goa so much; I can’t express my love for lab at NIO.

Now, I want to go NIO again to do my PhD in Biological Oceanography. In future, I want to be a researcher in the field of Biological Oceanography.
