Ayman Sadiq childhood
On 2nd September 1992, Ayman Sadiq was born in the Comilla district of Bangladesh. His father is Abu Taiyeb, an Army Brigadier General, and his mother, Sharmeen Akter, is a housewife. Ayman Sadiq’s are two siblings.
He has a younger brother named Sadman Sadik. Sadman is also a familiar figure of Facebook and YouTube because of creating educational videos. Ayman Sadiq spent his childhood in Comilla and took his primary and secondary education from Comilla’s local school.
Educational background of Ayman Sadiq
He studied science in his school life as he wanted to be an engineer or doctor. In 2010, he came to Dhaka and was admitted into Adamjee Cantonment College for HSC. From this institute, in 2012, he passed HSC with a brilliant result.
After that, he was admitted to the faculty of IBA of Dhaka University. He completed BBA and MBA from there in 2012-2016.
But, at the beginning of his university life was horrible because earlier, he was a science student and turned into a business admission student. As a result, he couldn’t understand what the lecturer lectured in the classroom. All the lectures went over his head and mind.
At that time, the internet was accessible in Bangladesh, and YouTube was slightly famous, so he searched there about his course’s lecture. But, he was disappointed and didn’t find any suitable lessons there, especially in Bangla.
He found some tutorials on accounting and other business administration-related courses, but those were in English. He found the lectures very helpful, and the video lecturers taught him accounting effortlessly. So, at last, he could complete the courses by watching the tutorials from YouTube.
Ayman Sadiq’s career
Ayman Sadiq was a very bright student from his childhood. So when he was a student of Dhaka University, many students came to him and requested to teach them. Mainly it was happening at the time of the university admission session. The students wanted to know the tricks and tips of how to make excellent preparation for university admission when they had limited time at hand.
Starting of Ayman Sadiq’s career as a tutor
First, he started to teach a student for university admission tests. Fortunately, the student got the chance. And the students referred another student the following year. Thus he became famous as a tutor and taught many students who got success. Then he thought, why not teach in an admission-based coaching center that helps me teach many students. So he started to teach at a renowned admission coaching center at Farmgate in Dhaka.
Behind the story of creating 10-minute school and debut as an entrepreneur
All the things went very smoothly and well while Ayman Sadiq taught at the coaching center. But one day, a student came to the coaching center to take admission. Ayman Sadiq saw the student’s request to reduce the admission fee because he came from a village and didn’t have much money. If he spent all the takas for admission purposes, he didn’t have money for food, transportation cost, mess (where many students live in a small room), rent, etc.
By seeing this, Ayman thought about how he can help him. Even he is not alone; every year, an enormous number of students suffer this crisis. Sometimes, it happens that they live on the road and eat unhealthy food for lack of money.
But, if we can reach them in the village and ensure quality education, they don’t need to come to Dhaka. If we can, then we will benefit from both sides. Such as we can reduce the over-human load from small Dhaka city, and the poor students get quality education from their home, which will be excellent.
When he was thinking about all of these, an idea peeps into his mind. He thought, what if he starts to teach online and makes tutorials on different topics of the admission test. When he was a student, he benefited from foreign tutorials. But, as most Bangladeshi students are poor in English, they can’t get their lectures.
Then he thought about what his platform’s name would be. One day he wanted to discuss it with one of his friends. The friend said, “Ayman, wait 10 minutes; I am coming.” By hearing these words, he finalized his platform’s name. He kept his school’s name 10 minute school. Primarily he made infographics and reached the students to provide better education.
Once, he made a short video on the geometry of math named “One Formula to Rule them All,” but a renowned company refused to publish it. Then he decided to open a YouTube channel and post the video there. Overnight the video got viral because every student liked it. In this way, the journey of 10-minute school started. This school is an unprofitable business.
Received Telecommunication operator Robi’s sponsorship and collaboration with the ICT Division of Bangladesh
Ayman was doing well with his 10-minute school project. But, he couldn’t manage the fund to create sufficient better and updated content. Then in 2017 ICT division of Bangladesh and Robi Telecommunication collaborated with Ayman Sadiq’s 10-minute school.
Robi sponsored all the costs of making tutorial videos, and ICT minister Jayant Ahmed Palak provided a well-furnished office infrastructure in Karwan Bazar, Dhaka, to make videos.
By getting sponsorship and government support, Ayman Sadiq enhanced the 10-minute school’s educational program and reached more than millions of students.
Now, 10-minute school covers grade 1-12 Bangladesh national curriculum books. According to 2020 status, 10 minute school produced more than 19440 video lessons, more than 1114 SmartBooks, more than 49530 quizzes, and more than 1300 blogs. They reached almost 4000+ government schools to provide quality education with fun.
