Shamitha aiming to be M’sian-made physician

KLANG: Intent on becoming a neurosurgeon, 18-year-old R. Shamitha believes achieving her dreams would be more meaningful if she gained entry into a public university.

So the SMK (P) Methodist Klang student had put in her best efforts in preparation for the SPM. She scored eight 8As and one B.

“I will enrol for STPM and work hard to score good results to gain entry into a public university to read medicine, ’’ said the youngest of three children.

Shamitha said she wanted to study in a public university and be a 100% Malaysian-made physician.

“It will also make my family proud and happy because only the ‘best of the best’ get into the medical faculties in our public universities, ’’ she said.

On her study schedule, Shamitha said she spent her weekdays on homework, tuition classes and revision.

“On weekends, it’s strictly for fun things such as watching movies, ’’ she added.

Shamitha scored A+ in Physics, Mathematics, History and English and A for Moral Education, Additional Maths, Chemistry and Biology as well as a B+ for Bahasa Melayu.

Shamitha’s father, newspaper vendor K. Rajendran said both he and his wife Vinusini Kanthaiya were extremely proud of their youngest child.

“A child’s success is the ultimate goal of every parent. We are thankful she has completed the first leg of her journey, ’’ he said.

Shamitha was among thousands of SPM students who received her results yesterday.

The 2020 SPM was held between Feb 22 and March 25 this year after it was postponed twice from its original scheduled dates last year due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
