Cerebral palsy student scores beyond expectations in SPM

SIBU: Nothing seems impossible for Alverth Hudson Awan Kebing, a student of SMK Rosli Dhoby.

Born with cerebral palsy, Hudson scored an impressive 6As and 2Cs in the 2022 SPM exams.

He got As in Bahasa Malaysia, English, Science, History, Geography and A+ in Moral Education.

The youngest among three siblings, Hudson, 18, was over the moon when receiving his result slip on Thursday (June 8).

"I was not expecting to get this result as my initial aim was 4As, but I have exceeded my own projections,” he said in jubilation.

Acknowledging the hard work, guidance and strong support from his teachers, he expressed his appreciation to them.

"The teachers here have been incredibly helpful. They emphasised memorisation techniques, especially for subjects like History. They conducted extra classes for us from Mondays to Saturdays, and I never miss any of them," he said.

Hudson, who aspires to become a Customs officer, also expressed his gratitude towards his caring classmates, who displayed genuine concern for his wellbeing.

His mother, Angela Mendong, was proud of his remarkable achievement.

"To be able to keep up with his classmates, considering his special circumstances, is already commendable.

“As long as he can lead a fulfilling life and take care of himself to the best of his abilities, I am grateful,” said Mendong, who is the chief nurse at the Oya Health Clinic.

Asked how she motivates her son in his studies, she said that she did not put excessive pressure on him but only encouraged him to do his best.

"I must say that the teachers' unwavering commitment and monitoring of his academic progress at home have undoubtedly played a significant role in his success," said Mendong.
