Fighting great odds and overcoming seemingly insufferable obstacles, an SSC examinee secured a GPA of 3.61 in his exams writing with his feet as he has been without his arms since birth, UNB reports.
Md Omar Faruk Sumon, son of Mujibur Rahman of Uttar Shahpara in Sherpur municipality area, appeared in his SSC exams from Sherpur DJ High School this year. He wants to go for higher education and to become a high government officer.
During visit on Monday, this correspondent found Sumon’s father Mujibur who is a decorator and his mother who is a housewife. He has two brothers and two sisters. Among them, Sumon is the youngest one. The two sisters got married off.
One of his brothers runs a small business in the village. His father has to pay the cost of study with great difficulty.
While talking to UNB, Sumon said, “I am very happy after hearing my result in SSC examination. I am very much interested in study from childhood. My parents could not stop my study although passing hard days in poverty. I will apply to a college and after that to a university. I want to be a high government officer after completing my education.”
Mother Fatema Begum said they are continuing Sumon’s study with great difficulty in poverty as he has keen interest in study. He passed PEC with GPA 4.35 from Sherpur Municipality Government Primary School and passed JSC with 4.15 from Sherpur DJ High School in 2015.
Sherpur DJ High School headmaster Akhtar Uddin Biplob said, “We believed Omar Faruq Sumon would pass. He is studying with great difficulty. His unwavering desire has brought him so far.”
