- Chadni is 10 years old
- She is from a poor background
- However, she is determined to be a doctor so she can offer free treatment to poor people
A 10-year-old girl in Bangladesh is not letting her poor background get in the way of her dream to be a doctor.
Chadni's story is told on photojournalist GMB Akash's Facebook page.
She begins by saying that her name means "moonlight" and that her mother chose it so she can bring light in the darkness.
She adds that her parents work as laborers at a rice factory and do not make enough money to everyone in their family of five.
Chadni therefore joins them to work after school to make additional money for her tuition fees, because, as she says, she loves going to school.
She hopes to become a doctor. She says: "After becoming a doctor I want to give proper treatment to my elder sister Josna who cannot walk properly from childhood. I want to give free treatment to poor people. I want to give out light in the darkness!"
