Aafreen Shaikh, a proud daughter of an auto rickshaw driver in the city of Ahmedabad, has scored 98.3 per cent marks in GSEB SSC examinations.
A hard working Aafreen Shaikh wishes to accomplish her parent's dream as she wants to be a doctor in future.
An elated Afreen said, "My parents wants to see me as a doctor and I will work hard to fulfill their dreams.”
Continuous revision, uphill struggle, parent's backing plus an objective to be a part of MBBS course in the coming time are a few of the key reasons Afreen credits her triumph too.
“I am indeed delighted with the results I’ve got and plan to take up admission in the science stream. I wish to become a doctor as nobody in my family has pursued this career and I am always inspired by the way doctors help the people heal their wounds,” said Aafreen who studies at FD High School in Juhapura area of Ahmedabad.
Aafreen's dad, Shaik Mohammad Hamza disclosed that his hard-working daughter always wished to serve the nation by becoming a bright medical doctor.
“I nurture a family of four and will do all that I can to educate my daughter and fulfil her dream of becoming a doctor. We’ve never differentiated between a girl or a male child and I will be the proudest if my daughters study and become independent. I am trying to arrange for financial assistance so that Aafreen can pursue a career of her choice,” Afreen’s dad told media people.
