Date of Birth: 08/12/1996
Life Story: I was studying at the local school in my village but I didn’t get any challenge from that school and the teachers were not treating us well. So I left that school and was hanging around in the harbor for a while. Then a teacher from SISP noticed me and convinced me to come to their free education center. I learned a lot in SISP and I was doing so well that the teachers selected me to enroll for a good private school. Now I’m a straight A student and my dream is to become an engineer, find a well-paid job and take good care of my mother and sister.
Surf Experience and Motivation: I like to study well and work hard during the week and the combination with surfing in the weekends works good for me. In everything I do I want to excel and Jelle pushes me to do so. I was one of the first members of the Kovalam Surfclub and I’m not planning on quitting soon!
