Shaf

I was born in Bangladesh and migrated to Queens, New York, when I was three months old. I have lived in Queens for a large part of my life, and this community, along with my family and friends, has shaped me to be the man I am today. I currently attend Baruch College where I am pursuing a degree in Marketing.

I currently work as a private tutor for a number of children ranging from the ages of seven to thirteen. My prime responsibilities as a private tutor are to make sure my students have mastered the current grade-level curriculum, to teach new and challenging material in a simplified and comprehensive way, and to promote teamwork by engaging students in solving challenging questions. This role has shown me how well I can work with, as well as understand, children. In conjunction with marketing, I believe that I can help industries that focus on a younger demographic better understand what appeals to young people.

My long term goal is to go on to business school where I can further elevate my knowledge and appreciation for the world of marketing. I believe America Needs You can help me achieve this goal through their commitment and dedication to me, which I will reciprocate right back to them. Through America Needs you, I hope to become a dignified individual, and I really look forward to working alongside other fellows and mentors over these next two years.
