GUWAHATI, June 25 - �The SOS Children�s Village is like a heaven for me, where I got a new lease of life. Today�s success was because of the motivation I received there,� said Nazrul Islam who scored 66.6 per cent marks in the Arts stream in the Higher Secondary final examination with letter marks in Logic and Philosophy.
Nazrul is an inmate of the SOS Children�s Village located in the Azara area of the city and appeared in the examination from Anundoram Borooah Academy, Pathsala.
�I lost my parents at a very early age and my family�s financial condition was very weak. So, in 2011, my guardian sent me to the SOS Children�s Village, where everyone helped me develop mentally as well as physically,� said Nazrul, whose native village is located in Darrang district.
Nazrul wants to pursue higher education in business administration. �I love Economics and English and I will try my best to get a seat in the BBA course in any reputed institute,� Nazrul added.
Director of the SOS Children�s Village, Subodh Das said, �We�re very happy with the result. He is a brilliant student and we hope he�ll be able to realise his dreams. At SOS Children�s Village, we live like one family; so it is a very special day for us.�
