PARMESH Ramgobin, one of the top students at the Caribbean Secondary Education Certificate (CSEC) examinations in Region Two has been honoured by Mohamed’s Enterprise for his outstanding performance.
Managing Director of Mohamed’s Enterprise, Nazar Mohamed recently met with Ramgobin and presented him with a cheque that will help in the furtherance of his education.
Ramgobin attended the Charity Primary School, and won a spot at Anna Regina Multilateral, where he excelled at the 2021 CSEC examinations.
He sat 20 subjects, and obtained 15 Grade Ones and five Grade Twos. His parents, Dinesh and Chandrawati Ramgobin expressed pride in his achievements. He also happens to be among Guyana’s top performers at the examinations.
Ramgobin comes from a family of five, of humble background. His father is a fisherman, and his mother a housewife. His father’s income is not sufficient to provide for the family and his education. So Ramgobin sold ‘chips’ to raise money for his books, Internet bills, transportation, and private extra lessons. Transportation cost was very high, so he had to help raise money to help his family fund his education. He told reporters that he used to wake up early in the morning, fry his own chips, package it and market it himself.
Mohamed, an Essequibian himself, was moved by Ramgobin’s story, and congratulated the young man. He invited Parmesh to his office where he honoured him with a cheque.
He said that in keeping with the social responsibility of his business, he has committed to funding the young man’s education throughout his academic journey.
Ramgobin was extremely happy and expressed his gratitude to Mohamed. He has already started out at the University of Guyana, and is reading for a degree in Biology.
