The post was accompanied by a touching story of his late brother’s last words to him.

Last visit from brother

According to the post, Adam’s brother had visited him in Prison a week before he met with an fateful traffic accident in which he lost his life.

Adam’s brother had told Adam that he is really proud of him and believes that he can do it.

At the time of the accident, Adam was six months away from the examinations and was unable to concentrate on his studies as he was grief-stricken by the death of his brother.

However, he decided to use his brother’s words to fuel himself and buck up a month later.

Applied for Prison School many times

Adam shared that he applied for Prison school many times but was always rejected and finally got the opportunity in 2021.

He feels fortunate to be able to use his time in prison fruitfully and meaningfully, adding that when you study, your world opens.

He spent most of his time at Prison school studying and revising with eight other cellmates who were also going to sit for the national examinations.

Adam also added that studying behind bars gives him more energy to concentrate as there are fewer distractions as compared to the outside world.

Thanked his teacher

Adam also shared that his form teacher, Ms Nor Aishah Binte Mohamed Salleh, had been a huge motivating factor.

He added that she not only helped them in their studies by making sure that they really understood the concepts taught to them, but also helped them in building up their character.

Furthering his studies

Adam did well enough for his O’ Levels, scoring a mixture of As and Bs.

He would also be furthering his studies and has applied to study a Diploma in Business Management inside Prison School.
