He also made it clear that the club aims at enhancing communication, collaboration and cooperation among students and fostering their creativity and innovation.
As the Chief Guest, Md. Ahsan Habib said, “Club activities help to build your professional skills including leadership, teamwork, communication and prioritization. All these skills are necessary for students applying to jobs and internships.”
Md. Ahsan Habib also said that such clubs activities will be helpful to make the students competent both nationally and internationally.
Appreciating the initiative of launching English Club, the Chief Speaker Admiral M. Farid Habib said, “Being involved in extracurricular activities allows students to learn the importance of being dependable, responsible, and trustworthy. These are not just clubs, rather early life lessons; each student organization relies on each student to do their part. If someone fails to fulfill their duties, it affects everyone. In turn, when everyone comes together to assist an individual in need, it builds solidarity among the group. A group with strong bonds is a group headed toward success.”
