Abujam Anjali Devi from SDJM Higher Secondary School, Paona Bazaar, who secured the first position for Commerce Stream in the just declared HSE, 2022 results, conducted by the Council of Higher Secondary Education Manipur (COHSEM), says she wants to join the teaching profession in the future.
Daughter of Abujam Romen Singh and Abujam ongbi Sarda Devi of Langthabal Mantrikhong Makha Leikai, Imphal West, she secured a total 424 out of 500 at 84.8 per cent and had letter marks in five subjects, namely, English, Computer Science, Manipuri and Business Studies to secure the top position.
During an interaction with the media at her home, the commerce topper said she was surprised when she bagged 1st position in her stream.
“I was confident that I could secure high marks but did not expect that I could bag 1st position”, said Anjali.
She said each stream has its own value and benefits, and, moreover, she was inspired by her elders to opt for commerce.
Anjali said other than English, she did not go for private tuition.
Responding to the media, Anjali said she did not have a fixed timing for studying but that she made it a habit to study for 1-2 hours daily thereby making it easy for her to face any difficulties at the time of examination.
“I am satisfied with the marks I secured”, Anjali said.
Anjali credited her teachers, family members and friends for her success. For further studies, Anjali said she will continue in Manipur instead of going outside the state as the same facilities are available in the state also.
She further said books have been her companion and during her leisure time she spent by reading story books and others as recreation.
Her father, Abujam Romen Singh is a lecturer in a private college whereas her mother, Abujam Ongbi Sarda Devi is a housewife.
Romen said since her primary days, Anjali used to imitate teachers and after seeing her interest in teaching, he motivated her to become a teacher for her career.
Sarda said that being a housewife, she has been monitoring her children in various ways and not to stray their minds but to become successful in life.
