YASMINE Sofea Hairulnizam, 18, is a third-generation Felda student who scored 10As in the Sijil Pelajaran Malaysia (SPM) 2021 examination.
She diligently took extra classes to gain an in-depth understanding of each subject.
The granddaughter of a Felda Air Tawar 1 settler in Kota Tinggi, Johor, said being selected to stay at Asrama Semai Bakti Felda in Kuala Lumpur for five years gave her the opportunity to excel in her studies.
“The hostel provided additional classes every week and I used the opportunity to gain a better understanding of each subject and participated in group studies with my friends,” she said.
In addition, her determination to continue the legacy of her parents was what motivated the SMK Aminuddin Baki student to study hard.
Emerra Balqis Mohd Ruslan, granddaughter of a Felda Raja Alias 1 settler in Jempol, Negri Sembilan, scored 8As, proving that hard work and determination will lead to success.
“Nothing can stop us from achieving success when we have determination.
“I have proven that the granddaughter of a Felda settler, who went to a Felda school, can also excel in her studies,” said the eldest of three siblings.
Emerra, who went to SMK Bandar Baru Serting, Negri Sembilan, also expressed her appreciation to her teachers for their tireless efforts in helping her obtain excellent results.
Her best friend, Nur Assyura Sulaiman, 18, who also scored 8As, hopes to become a teacher and plans to pursue English language studies for her tertiary education.
Assyura, the granddaughter of a Felda Raja Alias 2 settler, said she was pleased to have obtained a good result despite enduring the learning challenges posed by the Covid-19 pandemic. – Bernama
