For 17-year-old Ramoll Baboolall, success is no accident, but rather the result of hard work, perseverance, studying, sacrifice and most of all, commitment and discipline.
This Anna Regina Multilateral School student of Hampton Court, Essequibo Coast, created history after securing passes in a record 27 subjects, including 24 Grade Ones and three Grade Twos, at this year’s Caribbean Secondary Education Certificate (CSEC) examinations.
The young man, whose aspiration is to become a biochemist, was on Thursday morning congratulated and rewarded with a token for his exemplary performance by young businessman Azruddin Mohamed, whose parents also hailed from the Essequibo Coast.
“It is without conviction, that the teenager has not only made his mother and teachers proud, but his community and ultimately all Essequibians,” Mohamed was quoted as saying in a press release.
The city businessman also congratulated the lad’s mother for her tremendous support during his studies, which undoubtedly played a pivotal role in her son’s performance at the exams.
He nevertheless, encouraged the young man to follow his career path by becoming the very best in the field.
“To this end, Mohamed has offered to offset the expenses for his tertiary education in the event he does not receive a scholarship from the Government of Guyana. Once again, he congratulated the young scholar and wished him the very best in his academic pursuit,” the release concluded.
