“Gratitude is when memory is stored in the heart and not in the mind.”

My first Ever experience of writing a blog on Medium.

A Journey from 0 to 1
A journey from 0 to 1

The most beautiful fact about me is; I always ready to accept new changes in life and believe that the environment and people around me bring Positive changes in my personality. I keep a keen view of the reality of life, approach people with a positive mind, attitude and always prove to be helpful with honest efforts and true dedication. Besides All, I always feel very festive and privileged to meet and greet people belonging to different nationalities and cultures.

The story today is about my Teacher Dr Ahmed Hassan, currently Residing in Berlin, Germany.

A teacher takes a hand, opens a mind, and touches a heart

Sir, I am grateful to the people who make me happy; they are the charming gardeners who make my souls blossom. When for the first time I meet You, on the same day I realize the actual meaning of living: The purpose of life.

Why we humans are here on planet Earth? this Question was Buffering in my mind since long and I was unable to grab a meaningful answer to it. In 2015 I meet with my Mentor Ahmed Hassan and on that day, I got a creamy answer to my Query.

If the only prayer you say in your life is ‘thank you,’ that would suffice.

Teachers and educators play a vital role in the lives of children. They help mould young minds and encourage students to challenge themselves on a daily basis. Parents trust teachers to look after their little ones and help them grow to become intelligent, caring people. It’s a job that requires lots of patience, understanding and a lifetime of dedication. With all that they do, it’s only right that we let teachers know how much they are appreciated!

It can be hard to put in words exactly how much of an impact a teacher has made in the lives of you and your family.

An Inspirer. An Empower. An Engager. These three characteristics are just a short sample of the many you demonstrate with all of your students, including me, every single day.

Too often we progress through the ‘ropes of life,’ and do not invest the time to express our gratitude and authentic value for the support you so eagerly share for our growth, as not only students but also as global citizens of society.

You make me feel authentically supported when you say, “Please let me know how I can be helpful” and genuinely mean it. Also, the excitement you express to co-learn with me rather than teach me, makes me feel like a partner in my learning experience when it is so easy to feel like ‘a sponge that can only absorb.’ I know you have so much to share, but I love how you also openly articulate how much I have to share as well and how much you learn by engaging with me!

Dr Ahmed Hassan

As an educator, your title can ensure the role of heightening my knowledge in academics. However, you see me not as one of the many students you have, but instead, you value me for my uniqueness and strengths. You promote an environment where I feel like I am able to not only share my contribution but also know it is actually considered and appreciated.

Thank you for being genuine. Thank you for seeing me as a partner in learning and sharing. Thank you for being you. Thank you for being one of the few great teachers out there. May you inspire others to achieve the greatness you have.

With gratitude,
