Malaysians proud of Adelina Raisa Sufian

ADELINA (LEFT) POSING WITH HER FRIENDS AFTER SHE WON THE WESTLIFE TRUST PRIZE AT THE UNIVERSITY OF LONDON RECENTLY

A 21-year-old has done Malaysia proud when she was adjudged top student in English at the University of London’s Queen Mary College recently. Adelina Raisa Sufian, who obtained a Bachelor of Arts (English) degree with first class honours, won the coveted 2009 Westfield Trust Prize for outstanding academic achievement in English at the university last month.

Commenting on her achievement, Adelina attributed her success to encouragement from her parents, businessman Datuk Sufian Majid and Datin Alissa Fitri. Adelina, who is also an accomplished pianist, has represented Queen Mary College in choir and mathematics competitions. While pursuing higher education at the Ockham School, Britain, in 2004, she won the Headmaster’s Prize and was adjudged top student in Mathematics, English and Chemistry.

“I set a target throughout my study,” she said. “Most importantly, we must have the determination and confidence to succeed. “I am glad that I was able to compete with native speakers of English, as well as students from other countries,” Adelina added.

On her future, Adelina said she planned to write, pursue a Master’s degree and work in Malaysia. “I love my country,” she added. This young girl made our nation proud and determines to contribute to Malaysia after finish her study. This is one of the best examples to show our patriotism. Hope other students that studying in international universities emulate Adelina’s step in contributing to Malaysia after complete their studies.
