Norhamizah a beacon of true grit
GEORGE TOWN: Being confined to a wheelchair since she was a toddler did not stop Norhamizah Idros, 23, from achieving her dream of a university degree.
It will become a reality this week during USM’s 54th convocation ceremony when she receives her degree for graduating with a Bachelor in Electronics.
She is also due to receive the USM ViceChancellor Gold Medal award (disabled person category) from USM ViceChancellor Datuk Professor Asma Ismail.
“My disabilities are no reason for me not to work hard, I have never given up on my quest to be the best in whatever I undertake,” she said at a press conference yesterday at USM.
Another Chancellor Gold Medal recipient Lime Yen Ruen, 22, who will graduate with a Bachelor in Electric and Electronics said the secret to his success is proper time management.
He now works as an engineer with a multinational corporation. – by Imran Hilmy
