I am glad that I took the decision and came here as a volunteer. This is a great opportunity to meet people from all over the world. Most importantly Olympic is the biggest platform to represent Bangladesh among fellow volunteers. It’s really nice to see the appreciation and love for my work and for Bangladesh among my team mates.
|We had fun!!!|
I did seven days of work for the Olympic Games. For the first two shifts I was posted outside where my responsibility was to guide games spectators to complete security checks.

But I was part of the ticket control team for the rest of my shifts where my main responsibility was to validate tickets by scanning bar codes printed on the tickets. We had four to five volunteers and a team leader for each team. We had fun.
|We all become Usain Bolt!!!|
I am staying for the Paralympic Games and will be based at the famous Maracana Stadium and Olympic Stadium. Stay tuned for more excitement.
