Hi,
Im (genetically) bengali who is living in Canada. I have a B.Sc in Computer Science, and simply do not feel I fit in here. Mostly due to my height being 5'2 male. Ive been threatened with assault and humiliated a few times. Such is life.

I speak perfect english, but broken bengali (only spoke it at home till the age of 7 or so).

Is it possible for me to make a life in bangladesh?

Dear Ardia,

Bangladesh is a tiny country with 167million population. The average salary for someone of your qualifications in Dhaka is about $250/month. There is an endless line of qualified locals available for each position so there will not be any expat jobs in that field.
Thank your lucky stars that your parents got you to Canada. Use common sense to keep yourself out of potential situations...and maybe learn Thai kwan do ou something, and get on with your life.

Moving to bangladesh is really a good decision because people do not bully or anything. The people here are very sweet and helping and the country has suffered so much and people are so supportive to each other is very good. You can ofcourse go it. You have made a right decision. All the best :)
