Cerebral palsy no handicap for Chin Chin
GEORGE TOWN: Tan Chin Chin refused to allow physical limitations to put a brake on her ambitions. Born with cerebral palsy, she had always dreamed of going to university and getting a degree.
The 24-year-old will get more than a scroll tomorrow at Universiti Sains Malaysia's convocation: She will receive the USM Chancellor's Gold Medal for academic excellence from Raja Permaisuri Agong Tuanku Fauziah, Chancellor of the university.
Tan is the first handicapped student to earn the Gold Medal, USM's highest award for academic excellence. She will also receive the USM Women's Association Gold Medal.
"It was not easy to study in the university, let alone do well. I am grateful and thankful for the support and help from the university, my friends and most of all my parents. Without them, I would not be who I am today," said the Anthropology and Sociology graduate.
Tan, whose father is a labourer and mother a housewife, is currently teaching at the Spastic Children's Association here, where she was a student for four years.
Dentistry graduate Ling Yoke Li was also named a winner of the USM Chancellor's Gold Medal for academic excellence and the USM Women's Association Gold Medal.
The 25-year-old daughter of retired teachers will also receive the Royal Education Award (non-Bumiputera).
A total of 1,126 doctorate and Master's students and 6,228 first degree students will receive their scrolls during the five- day convocation, USM's 35th.
USM vice-chancellor Professor Datuk Dzulkifli Abdul Razak said at a Press conference that dentistry graduate Nawal Radhiah Abdul Rahman and literature in education graduate Fakhrul Razi Sunip, both 24, will receive the Royal Education Award (Bumiputera) and the Vice- Chancellor's Book Medal respectively.
