Rana Ferdous is the general secretary of Bangladesh society
of New York. Formerly a college professor in Sylhet,Bangladesh Rana started her
career in New York with a Finance & Marketing business organization .
She then got involved with the Bangladeshi community in New
York and began working as a social-cultural worker before she was elected to
her present position of General Secretary of Bangladesh Society of New York.
Ferdous thinks it is important to be active in Bangladeshi politics to be able
to help Bangladeshi compatriots but it is possibly equally important, if not
more to be actively participating in main stream American politics
and contribute to the society that we are living in and interacting
with local conditions.
In this connection she cites example of the recent
U.S.Presidential elections in which President Obama
returned happily victorious to occupy the White
House .Rana is married to a Bangladeshi freedom fighter and is a mother
