Opportunity knocks: Kenzon at the press conference with his parents.

GEORGE TOWN: Sijil Pelajaran Malaysia (SPM) top scorer Kenzon Yeoh, 18, has taken a step closer to reaching his dream of becoming a computer programmer.

The visually impaired youth who scored 5A+ and 2A- last year has been invited by @CAT Penang programme director Howie Chang to the centre in Wisma Yeap Chor Ee to discuss the matter.

“If there are words to describe Kenzon, it would have to be his ‘beautiful mind’.

“It is clear to see through his commitment and strength that propels him to achieve success,” he said during a press conference at Komtar yesterday.

He added that @CAT Penang would find projects for Kenzon, SMK Georgetown’s top SPM achiever, to allow him to develop his interest in programming.

Kenzon expressed thanks for the support but said he was still uncertain whether to do Form 6 or enrol for a diploma course.

Earlier, Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng presented RM500 to Kenzon on behalf of the state government.

Also present at the event were Kenzon’s father Yeoh Chin Yeau, 56, and mother Thee Suh Pyng, 53.
