"Who say you can't get 4A for STPM? As long as you put in the effort , nothing is impossible" -- that's what Dennis Teo Wei Xiang always told me. I have to admit that it is an honour to have such an unique, humble, shy and funny classmate like him who sit next to me. He ain't no normal person. He's a visually impaired student who scored 4A in STPM. Yes , visually impaired. Dennis was not born in that kind of condition ,in fact, he was once a normal student , like you and me. He went to school to study, he went to play in playground, and he like to "play" water in the weekend. When he was 12 years old , he lost his sight without any sign of warning . Imagine you , wake up in a morning and you realise that your visual is not that clear compared to yesterday ,and when you wake up tomorrow , the situation got worsen and worsen. What will you do ? Pardon my language ,but do you dare to say that you still have the courage and guts to go on your daily routine like it used to be ? I, dare not answer that question.
But, Dennis didn't gave up, because he knew god have not gave up on him yet. He regain his faith, and he continued his study. Well, as I mentioned earlier , Dennis is a shy boy. When we say : Dennis , your pink colour laptop looks cute ,he blushed. Dennis, you and pui san run like doremon, he blushed. Dennis, why are you hiding behind the aladdin (he used a computer like magnifier called aladdin) ? He will also blushed ...

For you all 's information, Dennis did not score A in the first term Bahasa Melayu paper although we all know that he is the top gun of that particular subject. What's more , we was jaw - dropped when he said that he fail his bm paper. It took him double effort to re study and retake the exam to score A for it, and at the same time he was also juggling with other heavy subject such as the notorious sejarah paper.

Dennis , I bet you must be blushing now when you read this. Ok la, I didn't write this for you only, in fact I don't even know will there be people who will spend their time to read this "panjang lebar " speech. The last , but not lease , to of our visually impaired classmate - Dennis ,Kavein , Hairul Amidi, Najwa and izwani , you guys are really awesome , and undoubtedly you all are the strongest human being on earth. May your future ahead be bright, wide ,and smooth.

Blindness no barrier to STPM high achiever



 PUTRAJAYA: Smiling broadly, 20-year-old P. Kaventhran held up his exam results specially printed out in Braille and proudly declared that nothing is too difficult to achieve.Kaventhran, who is completely blind, said he was delighted to learn that he not only scored 4A’s for STPM but was also the top scoring blind student in the country.“When I found out my results I was so happy as I had fulfilled the wishes of my parents, my relatives and my friends.“Now I have to focus on what is next and for me, that would be studying psychology,” he said, adding that his dream was to obtain a PhD in psychology.
Kaventhran, who studied in St John's Institution Jalan  Bukit Nanas Kaula Lumpur, said there were many people suffering from psychological problems and he wanted to give free advice to them.
 

“Now I have to focus on what is next and for me, that would be studying psychology,” he said, adding that his dream was to obtain a PhD in psychology.
Kaventhran, who studied in St John's Institution Jalan  Bukit Nanas Kaula Lumpur, said there were many people suffering from psychological problems and he wanted to give free advice to them.
“For example, teachers. They have to go through so much and sometimes even end up being hospitalised in Tanjung Rambutan,” he said, drawing laughter from reporters interviewing him yesterday.
Kaventhran had earlier received a cheque for RM5,000 from MIC president Datuk Seri G. Palanivel at the Natural Resources and Environment Ministry here.
Another recipient of a cheque for the same amount was M. Kabilan, also 20, who achieved a Cumulative Grade Point Average of 4.0 in the examination.
Palanivel, who is Natural Resources and Environment Minister, said he would help Kaventhran through the Tan Sri Manickavasagam Scholarship Fund.
“I will also go around the country and hand out cheques to high-performing Indian students soon,” he said.
He declined to answer questions on MIC, saying “this is not a party event”.
Asked on problems he faced when preparing for the examination, Kaventhran said getting books and other materials in Braille was “the biggest challenge”.
“To get one book with about 300 to 400 pages typed out in Braille would sometimes take up to a month.
“Usually, only a few copies of a book in Braille are produced, and I would have to share with my friends,” he said.
His parents M. Pulanthran, 56, and M. Thanamala, 51, said they expected him to do well as he had always done well in school.
Pulanthran said their only concern now was how they were going to send their son for further studies.
“There seems to be no avenue locally for him, and we are looking at options in the United States as they have courses on Psychology and materials for blind students there,” he said.
