A Radio Jockey reaches the audience in a way no one else can: On the streets in a traffic jam, late at night in a melancholic mood or any time your eyes just aren't feeling up to consume mass media. With an unforgettably sweet voice and demeanor, Rj Arunima is one of the most talented and promising radio jockeys in Bangladesh today.
Plans for New Year's Eve
I am very excited about the 31st, as I have two close friends marrying each other on that day! I am a bit worried about juggling work and giving my family some time, so let's hope that I can start the New Year on the right note!
My Biggest Achievements of 2017
One of them would certainly have to be the love that I have received for my shows, especially my signature Ek Cup Bikel on Fridays. Academically, I've met a few personal goals. I made some unique new connections and I travelled to different places. Professionally, I had been working on some well recognized projects at Radio Foorti. Overall, it has been a fantastic year for me.
New Year's Resolution
More than ever, now is the time to be extremely fearless. I have resolved to inch towards my goal without the fear of failure.
Something I'd like to change about myself in 2018
I am extremely lazy, and I'd like to fix that. I vow to become a morning person and be more productive in general.
A memorable moment of 2017
I've had a lot of memorable moments, but the first and my most favorite one came at the very beginning of the year. I watched the sunrise by the sea on exactly 01/01/17 and that was a highlight of my year.
What I plan to achieve in 2018
Miles to go before I sleep, really. I have much to do. 2018 for me will be all about not wasting a single second. I want to work harder, eat healthy, make time to socialize and for recreation, travel more, spend more time with family, and conclude my academic pursuits. In short: not let adulthood exhaust me and burn me out.
