Born to a family of a poor van driver in Thakurgaon, Alpana faced difficult times growing up. Braving all odds though, she managed to crack this year's MBBS admission test. But the teenager's struggles are unlikely to end soon as her father, Aftabar Rahman, has expressed his inability to fund her medical education -- literally a luxury for even the middle-class in Bangladesh. "I want to pursue my dream without putting any pressure on my father, who's struggling to make both ends meet. Already, he has done a lot for me and my three siblings," Alpana, a resident of Dharia Belsara village in Baliadangi upazila, told UNB. Also read: Khulna’s Meem tops them all in MBBS admission test
She has always dreamt of becoming an engineer -- the interest in the field probably grew in her childhood when she used to break toys to find out what was happening inside.

My father and mother have contributed a lot to this success,” Meem told UNB. "My parents are my inspiration in life, and I will fulfill their wish by becoming a doctor."

Meem also lauded the efforts of all her teachers -- from those who taught her the values of life to those who helped her prepare for the medical admission test. "My tution teacher Dr Siam deserves a mention. Shamsur Rahman, who taught us in Class V, also inspired me to do something in life. I have made all of them proud today," she said.
