WeGoRo collected 20 stories from people who revealed their personal achievements. We hope that they’ll never stop and will continue to strive to fulfil their dreams.
“My landlord’s daughter is the same age as me. She studied at school, at college, and then at university. Recently she married a wealthy man and refused to find a job. She believes that her parents should pay all of her expenses. My landlord calls me illiterate, but my salary helps my parents to live in a good house and to buy good food. The money that I get for the extra hours I work helps my younger sisters to study. The work that I am doing is my dignity. In this case, I am happy to be illiterate.”
"I am a 4th-year student, and the only watch that I ever had is an ordinary Fossil one that my girlfriend gave me for my birthday. I wore it every day for 3 years until I dropped it and it broke. That happened almost 2 years ago. I haven’t been able to afford a new watch since then. This summer, I made it my goal to work hard and buy a new watch. Finally, I achieved what I had wanted for so long. I’m really glad that I bought it, and I don’t regret the efforts I made to buy it.
“20 years ago, I moved to Dhaka with 3 little kids to teach maths. My day started at 7 in the morning and ended at 11 in the evening. I didn’t use public transportation and walked 8 kilometers a day; I didn’t eat practically anything, and I saved money for my children’s education. Now my daughter is a doctor, my elder son is an engineer, my younger son studies at Dhaka University. 4 years ago I bought a drugstore with my savings and stopped teaching. All my dreams came true thanks to my hard work and determination”.
