A pair of brothers fulfilled their parents’ dream by re­ceiving top honours at their school.

Rishikul Sanatan College award­ed Year 13 student Mohammed Owaifan Ayala, the college dux award. The school also awarded his brother, Mohammas Al-Dousary, with the Year 12 dux award at the annual prizegiving ceremony yes­terday.

Both hope to make a career in the medical field.

Speaking about winning his award, Mohammed Owaifan Ayala said: ““There were a lot of difficul­ties I faced on my way like coping with the syllabus and studying.

“I was able to overcome my diffi­culties through teachers’ and par­ents’ support.

“Year 13 for me was all about dedi­cation and hard work because this year determines our future.”

The 18-year-old advised other students to learn to balance eve­rything in life in order in order to achieve good marks.

Mohammed Owaifan Ayala hopes to get a scholarship to study abroad.

“I want to become a doctor be­cause I want to help everyone,” he said.

His brother, Mohammad Al-Dousary, said he was glad to achieve his own dux award along­side his brother.

“I worked very hard and I want to do something in medicine just like my brother,” he said.

“My sole purpose is to just help people and being good to people is a great legacy.

“It’s not all about the salary. Help­ing people will make my presence in this world worthwhile because I believe in an afterlife.”

“There is no struggle that hasn’t been worth it,” said the 17–year-old.

Their parents, Shabnam Khaiyum and Mohammad Khaiyum, said they were both proud of their sons and would support them in their chosen career paths.
