IPOH: “Being a visually-impared person is not an obstacle for me to succeed. I want to prove to everyone that people like me can ‘see’ success,” said Ain Nadiah Jamal Hurri, who scored 5As in the Ujian Pencapaian Sekolah Rendah (UPSR) which was announced today.
The Sekolah Kebangsaan Tanjung Rambutan pupil, who suffered from left corneal problem since she was six, said the disease however had motivated her to achieve an excellent result in the examination.
“I had an operation when I was seven but it was unsuccessful for me to have perfect vision. I can only read at a distance of about eleven centimetres. During the examination, due to my vision problem, the papers provided to me
were written in capital letters, so I could read the questions clearly,” she said after receiving her results at her school here today.
The youngest of four siblings said she studied for four hours and recited Al-Quran for an hour every day.
Ain Nadiah, however, did not expect to score straight As in the UPSR as she only received 4As and 1B in the trial.
“I am grateful to my parents who have helped and encouraged me a lot, as well as to all teachers who have guided me all this while,” she said, adding, her ambition was to be a lecturer.- BERNAMA
