Having a disability did not stop Nur Izzati Hazwani Abdul Hadi, 23, from obtaining excellent results throughout her studies.
Nur Izzati, who suffers from pre-mature growth of her limbs which affect her ability to walk, finished her Degree of Literature and History with a Cumulative Grade Point Average of 3.35.
She said being physically weak is not a barrier for her to succeed in her study.
“Sometimes, I need to use the wheelchair, but that’s not an obstacle for me to not go to class.
“My parents were an inspiration to my success and have always been my biggest supporter,” she said.
She said lecturers and friends also lend a hand throughout her study in UKM.
“They understood my condition and constantly supported me either in lectures or in college,” she said.
If given the opportunity, she plans to pursue a Master’s Degree in Politics and International Relations.
