I started my journey from 25th december 2017 midnight.While i was suffering by Insomnia to some personal issues.
I never had the oppurtunity to expose my ideas or start over until i opened my page “Glamshow”(Event Management)
I never thought i would step into this until i decorated my own birthday own 20th birthday on 17th November 2017.
Everyon praised about the decoration i took it very casually where my mom asked me “why dont u study event managment”I replied ” let me get my A.levels result i want to finish BBA firstOne fine night,i opened a page named glamshow and i thought of trying it out and updated all my birthday photos on it.I also uploaded few pictures from google esp the one’s which i would love to decorate.I fell asleep that night and by the time i woke up ,i found 5messages on page.And to me at that time 5 messages was a gift.I have always been hearing,’Women are made for kitchen’.Women can never be a good business tycoon.’Women in Bangladesh were born to shop with huband’s money.
These lines haunted me alot.Coming back on the issue of glamshow i got three bookings in 12 hours.
To be honest,i was freaked outwhen this happened because i did not get any inspiration from anybody.E
veryone out there use ask me,you think you really can do it?!Only my mom used to say”Best of luck for todays work”
My brother also supported me alot to stuck up with this proffesion.When i used to face obligations from family,he used to protest for me.Everytime i stepped into a new project i used to think twice if i fail the people who discourages me will win.They will make fun of me.Within 20 days,i did 7 events.Still,i used to face discouragements.But nothing could hit me because i had less time to be bothered about hat people say as i was swamped with events and management.I was on my vacation and applied to university.I thought of utilising every moment to the peak and achieve my goals.Gradually,the people who used to diacourage me were stunned after seeing my raising position
Within 25 days i thought of launching my online based boutique “Cozy Attires By Rnk” that i used to manage during my highschool.I could not concentrate on it properly during that time as i was busy with studies.It takes alot of finance to launch a boutique properly.I did not have much in hand as i am a student amd i am very shy to ask for finance from family members.All i had in hand was my profits from event and fees fromthe tution i did.
I could invest them to design my dresses only but lunhing it properly was difficult.
And again one fine night the idea of exhibition stuck me.I informed few of the enterpreneurs and surveyed if they are interestedin participating in any exhibition around banani in low cost.80% people were interested and i got positivity and encouagement in me.
I could not stop myself from continuing and making myself work like a robot even in weekends as well.
I plotted everything for my exhibition as it is the one i know that would bloom my Cozy Attires By Rnk.i organised everything through my event management “Glamshow”.We all discussed and set a date which was on 2nd and 3rd of feb 2018.I had such a short period of time in my hand.Likewise,i had zero helping hands.I did everything by myself and organised it neatly and invited everyone.
I took 10 participants in my exhibition which inluded food/desserts/shoes/jewellery etc.There were three special guests in my exhibiion
1) Fiona husein (owner of Mantra) 2)Nahila hedayet (owner of prive salon )
All these ifluencial female enterpreneurs came to inspire me.
And the moment they were congratulating me was the time when i thought “My hard works are paying off” It was a fatastic exhibition that led me to ecstasy and enlightened me to this stage.And then comes the big work of The Way Dhaka hotel.One fine day they called me and asked if i was free on valentines day?!They liked my work so much from the other events which i have decorated through my glamshow in that hotel.They incharged me with the full valentine work of The Way Dhaka Hotel.One after another oppurtunities were coming.
Not only that my ‘Cozy Attires By Rnk’ is also the supplier of T.shirts for Prive salon &spa Ltd.One of the most famous makeover studio and parlor in town.Last but not the least ,this Women’s Day 2018 i was invited as special guest on Dhaka.Fm to talk about womer empowerment and enterpreneurship skillsToday,the ones who used to ask twice”you think you really ca do it, asks me “Can you do it for me?”I proved that ‘Age is just a Number’ to the ones who used to say it’s not a cup of cake that you can do it in such an early age.My advice to all women out there,”you can do anything and everything if you really want it.If women were born to wash dishes our PRIME MINISTER would not have been a female.
