A determined and hardworking Nor Faiza Rosidin, 20, is now one step closer to making a change in the orang asli community. “I want to be an inspiration to other orang asli, especially all my younger siblings, so that we can be successful,” said the STPM graduate from SMK Abu Bakar, Temerloh, Pahang, who emerged as the best student under the orang asli category for STPM 2018 with a CGPA score of 3.83. The eldest of five children born to rubber tapper parents, Nor Faiza from the Semelai tribe, said she wanted to show people that orang asli are also capable individuals. “I want to be successful so that people won’t look down on me. It is not impossible to achieve your goal. “It may be difficult, but if you work hard towards it you can make it happen,” she said after thanking supportive teachers, parents and friends. She hopes to enrol into Universiti Malaya and major in education, particularly in the field of special education.
